Auditing a Worksheet
Auditing a Worksheet
In a complex worksheet, it can be difficult to understand the relationships between cells
and formulas. Auditing tools enable you to clearly determine these relationships. When
the Auditing feature is turned on, it uses a series of arrows to show you which cells are
part of which formulas. When you use the auditing tools, tracer arrows point out cells
that provide data to formulas and the cells that contain formulas that refer to the cells. A
box is drawn around the range of cells that provide data to formulas.
Trace Worksheet Relationships
Click the Formulas tab.
Use any of the following options:
• Click the Trace Precedents button to find cells that provide data to a for-
mula.
• Click the Trace Dependents button to find out which formulas refer to a
cell.
• Click the Error Checking button arrow, and then click Trace Error to loc-
ate the problem if a formula displays an error value, such as #DIV/0!.
• Click the Remove Arrows button arrow, and then click Remove Precedent
Arrows , Remove Dependent Arrows , or Remove All Arrows to remove
precedent and dependent arrows.
