Excel in Practice

There are proper and improper ways to structure a list. Figure 17.22 shows a list with some problems:

  • Mixed lowercase and uppercase text, which makes the list difficult to read and draws the audience's attention from the field names to the body of the list.

  • The codes shouldn't be placed in separate rows; they should have their own field column and be associated with each record item in the list.

  • First and last names are combined into one field, which means that you couldn't sort this list in order by last name.
