What else can you do?
To bring back the missing columns, select the two columns either side of those
that have been removed. In this case, I’ve clicked on the heading for column B
and moved the mouse into column G to select them both. Then retrace the steps
used to hide the column until the fi nal step, when you should select Unhide
Columns (you can see this in the menu in Figure 4.15).
What else can you do?
This Excel project has taught you the basics of creating spreadsheets. There’s a lot
more you can do with the skills learned in this chapter. Here are just some ideas:
Plan your garden planting. You could have a column for the plant name, one
for plant type, another for when you should plant seeds indoors, and a fourth
for when you should move them to the garden. You could then fi lter to see
what you should be doing in any given month, or for information on specifi c
plant types (vegetables or fl owers, for instance).
Store the details of your record collection.
Store details of hotels you’ve stayed at, so you can easily rebook and refresh
your memory about whether it’s worth staying there again.
Create to-do lists, with different categories of task. You could add a column
for where you do those tasks, then use a fi lter to see all the things you need to
do in that location at the same time. There’s a simple template for this on my
website.
Store membership records for any local community organisations you are
involved with.
Create checklists to help you manage complex projects like redesigning
the kitchen or building an extension. You could mark a job as complete by
colouring the cell beside it green, and mark it as abandoned by colouring
it red.
Create a grid to keep track of the meals you’ve cooked at dinner parties for
particular friends, so you don’t serve the same thing to the same people.
Plan your Christmas shopping or your wish list.
