What happens if you select a populated cell and enter data into it?
When you use the New from Existing command to create a new workbook, Excel
appends the number 1 to the end of the i lename. This creates a new i le without
overwriting the existing one.
To select a range of cells, click the i rst cell in the range, drag across the cells, and release
the mouse button.
Clear Contents has the same eff ect. Like the Delete key, it removes just the contents in
the current cell selection without removing the formatting assigned to the cell.
You lose the original data that was in the cell.
