The legendary “Mr Excel” Bill Jelen has shared that once at an Excel training seminar, someone asked him how we was adding up rows from within Excel.
“How do you add your data?” Bill asked.
“I get out my calculator and add!” the person said.
While this sounds apocryphal, it does not surprise me after a few years in the workforce. Blogging about data and Excel has taught me that topics which seem basic to me can be helpful to readers, if I prepare and deliver the content appropriately.
So for everyone out there using Excel via hand calculator, this one’s for you.
