One of the real strengths of Microsoft Excel 2013 is that the program
Understanding how Excel interprets
data entry
makes it easy for you to enter large quantities of data. When you
type text, Excel remembers what you entered in previous cells in the
same column and offers to complete the current entry for you. The good
news is that you need to type Arkadelphia only once. After the first time,
typing the first few letters gives Excel enough information to guess the
city’s name. Entering a series of numbers, dates, or days also goes quickly
and smoothly. If you want to enter a long series of numbers, dates, or
even weekdays, you can type one or two values and have Excel fill in the
remaining values in the series! These techniques, combined with
formatting and other skills you’ll learn elsewhere in this topic, make data entry
nearly painless.
