The important of spreadsheet applications


The use of spreadsheets can be dated back into ancient times. It is evidence of how people always use an organized, visual representation of numbers and concepts in order to see a complete picture in a birds eye view. Fast forward a couple of millennia, and youll see that modern spreadsheets perform the same basic function as its predecessors did to help people organized huge amounts of data and make sense of information too great for the human brain to grasp.

How to insert and delete rows and


columns
The easiest way to add columns it to select one of the columns from the top of your workbook window that are a letter and right click it, and then simply go down and select insert. This will then just create a brand new column and push the one that you just created over. You can also go up to the Insert menu and go down to columns. Once you select that, it will give you a brand new column. If you want to delete a column, simply select the letter, which will highlight all of the column and then right click and select delete. In order to add or delete a row, you'd do the same thing. You select a number from the left hand side of your workbook and right click it and select insert. That will then give you a new row and push the row that you had selected down. If you would like to delete that row, you simply do the same thing by selecting it, right click on it and select delete.

How to change the column width and


row height

When you set a row height, you are specifying the maximum height for the row in the rendered report. However, by default, text boxes in the row are set to grow vertically to accommodate their data at run-time, and this can cause a row to expand beyond the height that you specify. To set a fixed row height, you must change the text box properties so they do not automatically expand. When you set a column width, you are specifying the maximum width for the column in the rendered report. Columns do not automatically adjust horizontally to accommodate text.

How to copy and move contents in a cell If youre moving or copying a multi cell range with the Clipboard method, you can either select the same size and shape of block for the destination. Sometimes, you may not want the cell references in a formula to change when you move or copy it. In other words, you want it to be an absolute reference to that cell. To make a reference absolute, you add dollar signs before the column letter and before the row number.
