2. Split a column into two columns – You might want to break up information in a certain column into separate pieces of data for example splitting a person’s name into first and last names for mailing lists or separating a list of numbers into individual values for each one. You can do this in Excel by highlighting the column and selecting ‘Text to columns’ in the data tab. This will split the column based on commas and other characters in the text and will produce an output in the form of new columns for you.
3. Faster Number Crunching – You can make your spreadsheet more efficient by using the ‘Evaluate Formula‘ function to get the results of a particular formula without having to enter it in each cell. Simply highlight the cell with the formula and go to formulas -> evaluate formula (keyboard shortcut Alt + F2). Excel will then show you all the steps that it took to arrive at the result.
