Including Smart Tags

When you type data that is recognized by Excel as a stock symbol or a name, the cell receives a smart tag, as indicated by a purple triangle marker in the lower-right corner of the cell. You can click the Smart Tag Options button to perform tasks such as looking up the stock symbol on the Web or entering contact information for the name in Outlook.

Type a U.S. stock symbol or other item recognized by Excel.

2.
Press Enter. The corner marker shows the presence of a smart tag.

3.
Move the pointer over the cel and click the Smart Tag Options button to see the list of options (Figure 16.30).
