Note that data from different sheets in the same workbook can be referenced for formulas. For example, if you have two sheets, Sheet1 and Sheet2, you could bring Sheet2 data into Sheet1. If you wanted cell A1 in Sheet1 to equal the A1 in Sheet2, youd enter this formula into A1: “=Sheet2!A1”. The exclamation mark calls on the previous sheet referenced before locating the data.
G. Row and Column Formatting Tools: The Insert drop_down menu puts cells, rows, or columns before or after a selected area on the sheet, and Delete removes them. The Format drop_down lets you change the height of rows and the width of columns. It also has options for hiding and unhiding certain sections.
A. These tools control PivotTables, an important Excel function. Think of PivotTables as “reports,” a quick way to view all your data, analyze trends, and draw conclusions. By selecting at least two rows of data and clicking on PivotTable, you can quickly generate a visually_appealing table. Going through this process launches the PivotTable Builder, which helps you select columns to include, sort them, and drag_and_drop them to quickly construct your table. They can include collapsible rows to make reports interactive and uncluttered. There is also a button for Recommended PivotTables, which can help when you dont know where to start.
C. Spreadsheet Work Area: By default the work area is a grid. Along the top are column headers A through Z (and beyond), and along the left side are numbered row headers. Each rectangle in the spreadsheet is called a cell, and they are each named according to their column letter and row number. For example, the cell selected here is A3.
