Chapter 7. Creating a Worksheet with Excel > Entering Text and Numbers

Entering Text and Numbers

You can enter values as whole numbers, decimals, percentages, or dates. You can enter values using the either numbers on the top row of your keyboard, or the numeric keypad on the right side of your keyboard. When you enter a date or the time of day, Excel recognizes these entries (if entered in an acceptable format) as numeric values and changes the cell's format to a default date, currency, or time format. The AutoFill feature fills in data based on the data in adjacent cells. Using the fill handle, you can enter data in a series, or you can copy values or formulas to adjacent cells. The entry in a cell can create an AutoFill that repeats a value or label, or the results can be a more complex extended series, such as days of the week, months of the year, or consecutive numbering.
