Entering Data

Worksheet data is made up of three components: labels, values, and formulas. This section discusses entering labels and values, and you’ll learn about creating and entering formulas in Chapter 6, “Working with Formulas.” When you are ready to enter data into a worksheet cell, you must first click on the cell in which you want the information.

Entering Labels

Labels are traditionally descriptive pieces of information, such as names, months, or other identifying information. Excel automatically recognizes information as a label if it contains alphabetic characters. Don’t worry if the entire label does not appear to fit into a cell width. If needed, Excel automatically extends the data past the cell width.
