Chapter 7. Worksheet Editing Techniques > Getting the Words Right

Getting the Words Right

Worksheets are not all numbers, of course, so Excel includes several features to help make entering and editing text easier. AutoCorrect helps you fix common typing errors even before they become spelling problems. For the rest of the words in your worksheets, the Spelling Checker helps make sure you've entered your text according to Webster. Finally, you might be able to get AutoComplete to do some of the typing for you.

Fixing Errors as You Type

Perhaps you have to stop and think “i before e except after c” every time you type “receive.” Perhaps you're a blazing typist that constantly hits the second letter of a capitalized word before the Shift key snaps back. Excel's AutoCorrect feature helps fix many common typing and spelling errors on the fly. Choose Tools, AutoCorrect Options to display the AutoCorrect dialog box shown in Figure 7-39.
