You've likely experienced the "blur" that sets in when you're working in a large spreadsheet. Or the frustration in tasks that consume far more time in Excel than you feel they should.
You'll be able to arrange two or worksheets onscreen at the same time, instead of repeatedly clicking back and forth between worksheet tabs. An unsung feature in Excel is the Custom Views feature that lets you hide and unhide rows/columns/worksheets with ease, as well as store different print settings for a single worksheet.
Few users capitalize on the Watch Window feature which offers both monitoring of key worksheet cells but also instant access with a simple double-click. The Watch Window also doubles as a spreadsheet auditing feature. Excel spreadsheet training is full of hidden nuances, such as the ability to bring back the full-screen Print Preview window in Excel 2010 and later, instead of suffering eye-strain and frustration with the Backstage print preview window on Excel's File menu.
Many repetitive tasks in Excel are avoidable. For instance, you can reduce the repetitive tasks of manually freezing certain rows on screen from reports that you export daily from online systems such as CRM software training or accounting packages down to a single keystroke.
You'll also see how to tamp down the size of large workbooks, in some cases back to a level where they can be emailed. This technique can also improve the performance of calculation-intensive workbooks.
