In Excel, when I click on a drop down list on the tool bar (fill color, Sort & Filter, Auto Sum, etc) all the drop down options are greyed out & I cannot click on any of them.

    Hi,

    Could you provide a screenshot about your problem?

    How did you create the drop down list? Data Validation or Control to create the drop down list?

    Please be a bit more precise to explain your requirement or you can upload a screenshot so that I can get more accurate solutions to this problem. I’m glad to help and follow up your reply.

    If other menu items on the ribbon are equally greyed out, you may need to activate your office subscription.
