Worksheet Editing

Some of the most important Excel skills you can learn are editing skills. Entering numeric data is error-prone at its best; the faster you edit cell values accurately, the faster you complete accurate worksheets. The following sections show you the primary editing techniques Excel provides.

Selecting Cells

You can select a cell, a row of cells, or a column of cells just by clicking and dragging your mouse. As you drag your mouse, Excel selects a rectangular region, called a range. You notice as you drag your mouse that Excel displays the number of rows and columns you have selected. You see the message 10R X 4C appear in the toolbar's Name Box as you select 10 rows and 4 columns, for example. When you release your mouse, Excel displays the selection's upper-left corner cell name inside the Name Box as Figure 8.1 shows.
