Chapter 1. Getting Around Excel > Saving Excel Data

Saving Excel Data

The first rule you should learn with regard to any computer application is to save your work early and often. Excel is no exception to this rule, and is perhaps one of the applications where the rule is most important.

When is “early”? As soon as you've entered the worksheet title and column/row labels. Don't wait until you've entered all the numbers and built the formulas. Why save so early? Because programs crash, power failures happen unexpectedly, and we all make mistakes, such as closing a file without saving.
