If the active cell is empty, Excel will extend the selection to the first non-empty cell below the active cell. If the active cell is non-empty, Excel will extend the selection on the last non-empty cell below the active cell. On a Mac, the command key (⌘) can be used instead of the control key.
In this video, we use conditional formatting to create an interactive search box to highlight data. This is a nice alternative to filtering, because the information you're looking is highlighted in context, and the search box checks multiple columns at the same time (using concatenation).
Although Pivot Tables are fantastic tools for summarizing data, sometimes you just want a simple, lightweight solution based on formulas. The good news is you can build your own summaries using functions like COUNTIF and SUMIF. See how in this 3 minute video.
In this video, we'll look at a few ways to generate random values with the RANDBETWEEN function. You can use this approach to generate random numbers, random prices, random dates, and even random text values. This is a great way to create dummy data to test formulas and worksheets.
In this video, we'll look at how you can use the CHOOSE function for simple lookups. The CHOOSE function doesn't need an external table, and can sometimes replace more complicated formulas based on VLOOKUP, INDEX and MATCH, or nested IFs.
In this video gives a brief introduction to structured references. Structured references is just a fancy name for formulas that use table names instead of normal cell references. This sounds boring, but it's actually cool and useful.
In this video, we'll look at how to use conditional formatting to shade alternating groups of rows. For example, you can use this approach to shade groups of 3 rows, groups of 4 rows, and so on. This can be a nice way to make certain tables easier to read.
