I think this is an easy question...autofill of cells.

My boss wants me to switch a group of cells in worksheet from a drop down list to autofill (you know if you type in a few letters then the cell will suggest the completion of the text).

There are 170 items that must be included. (Which is why he does not want it in a drop down menu).

I know there is an easy way to make that happen, but for the life of me, I cannot remember. Thanks in advance!

How to total the visible cells?
From the first blank cell below a filtered data set, press Alt+=. Instead of SUM, you will get SUBTOTAL(9,)

As far as I'm aware you would need to use a combobox from either the Control Toolbar or the Forms toolbar.
