Chapter 28. Managing Information in Lists > Building and Maintaining a List

Building and Maintaining a List

To function effectively, a list should have the following characteristics:

  • The top row should consist of labels, with each label describing the contents of the column beneath it. Each label should be unique.

  • Each column should contain the same kind of information.

  • Each type of information that you want to be able to sort by, search on, or otherwise manipulate individually should be in a separate column.

  • The list should not contain blank rows or columns.

  • Ideally, the list should occupy a worksheet by itself. If that's not possible, separate the list from any other information on the worksheet by at least one blank row and column.
