Key Points
You can add a group of cells to a formula by typing the formula, and then at the spot
in the formula in which you want to name the cells, selecting the cells by using the
mouse.
By creating named ranges, you can refer to entire blocks of cells with a single term,
saving you lots of time and effort. You can use a similar technique with table data,
referring to an entire table or one or more table columns.
When you write a formula, be sure you use absolute referencing ($A$1) if you
want the formula to remain the same when it’s copied from one cell to another,
or use relative referencing (A1) if you want the formula to change to reflect its
new position in the worksheet.
Instead of typing a formula from scratch, you can use the Insert Function dialog
box to help you on your way.
You can monitor how the value in a cell changes by adding a watch to the Watch
Window.
To see which formulas refer to the values in the selected cell, use Trace Dependents;
if you want to see which cells provide values for the formula in the active cell, use
Trace Precedents.
You can step through the calculations of a formula in the Evaluate Formula dialog
box or go through a more rigorous error-checking procedure by using the Error
Checking tool.
