Create Excel Spreasheets More Quickly

by Yehuda Cagen 26. August 2010 06:43



Do you spend too much time and energy typing information in an Excel spreadsheet?


Would you like faster way to do this?


How about sequential information - like numbers or dates?


Houston computer service expert Cheryl Smith shares a few tips: 


For Repeated data:


  1. Enter the first data in cell desired.
  2. Highlight all cells in which you want this data to appear
  3. Use function command: Control D, Control F or Edit Fill


For Sequential data:


1.       Enter the first data preferred such as; January, Monday, or a date 8-25-2010 etc.

2.       Click at the bottom of this cell allowing the Fill Handle (black cross) to appear

3.       Drag this handle to the end of desired cells; this will automatically fill in the information for you.
