In addition to manual data filtering Excel enables fully automated filtering based on data from the specified range of cells. Before you can use the advanced filtering feature, you must set up a criteria range. A criteria range is a designated range on a worksheet that conforms to certain requirements.
Sheets can be grouped (connected) to facilitate creating or formatting two or more identical sheets. For example, you can create one sheet and copy it to two other sheets, or you can group three blank sheets and enter and format the content once-no subsequent copying required.
You can edit data in cells this in several ways:
There are several operators that could be used in formulas.
If you need to enter lots of numbers with a fixed number of decimal places, Excel has a useful tool:
Applying a number format to a cell doesn't change the value, but only how the value appears in the worksheet. Formatting can play a joke with you, e.g., sum of values seems incorrect because Excel displays a limited number of decimal places and their sum is not equal to the real sum.
If you simply need to perform a calculation, you can use the Formula bar as a calculator.
Formulas can refer to cells in other worksheets-and the worksheets don't even have to be in the same workbook. Excel uses a special type of notation to handle these types of references.
You can enter nonrelative references (absolute or mixed) manually by inserting dollar signs in the appropriate positions, or you can use a handy shortcut - F4 key.
