Option Buttons
Excel displays Option buttons in a workbook while you are working on it to indicate
that you can complete an operation using automatic features such as AutoCorrect,
Auto Fill, error checking, and others. For example, the ‘Auto Fill Options’ button
shown in Figure 2 – 12 appears after a fill operation, such as dragging the fill handle.
When an error occurs in a formula in a cell, Excel displays the Trace Error button next
to the cell and identies the cell with the error by placing a green triangle in the upper
left of the cell.
Table 2 – 4 summarizes the Option buttons available in Excel. When one of these
buttons appears on your worksheet, tap or click its arrow to produce the list of options
for modifying the operation or to obtain additional information.
