Part II: Creating Your First Worksheet > Entering and Editing Labels and Values

Chapter 4. Entering and Editing Labels and Values

In this chapter

  • Moving from one cell to another and typing entries in the cells.

  • Filling in a series of days, months, years, or other repeating patterns with Auto Fill.

  • Transforming simple values into dollar amounts.

  • Editing cell entries.

  • Cutting, copying, moving, and deleting cell entries.

  • Undoing actions when you make mistakes.

Before your worksheet can be of any use to you, it must contain data, and that means that you must do a little data entry—type labels and numbers into cells. Although data entry sounds easy enough, in order to enter data successfully, you must know how to navigate a worksheet, type entries in the proper format, accept and reject entries as you type them, and change the number formats to add dollar signs and other symbols that display standard numbers as meaningful values. This chapter covers the basics of worksheet navigation and data entry and provides a few tips to help you enter data more efficiently.
