In this tutorial, I will provide you with Top 10 Advanced Tips in Microsoft Excel you can apply when doing your work using Microsoft Excel.

Let's start with the advanced tips...

1. Quickly shift to the last cell in the column or row.

The first advanced tips is to quickly shift from the first cell to the last cell in the data, either from column-to-column, or row-to-row. What you have to do is simply go to the border of the cell, and then double click on the bottom border to transition to the last active cell in the column. As for shifting from row-to-row, double click on the right side of the cell border.

  • Select the header for the duplicated data, and click ok.
  • A thread will be displayed once your duplication removal succeeds, click ok and you are ready to go.

3. Selecting multiple cells to insert the same data

If you plan on putting the same data or value into cells on either different cells or row, this method fits perfectly for that task.

  • First, hold the Ctrl button and select all the cells you need to put data in it.
  • Next, type in the data you need to put, and press Ctrl + Enter.

4. Autofill cells by data pattern

If you wish to insert repetitive data, such as date or months into either the whole column or row, follow these simple steps.

  • Next, hover your cursor and hold the fill handle‍ – located on the lower right corner of the cell, then pull down or double click on it to fill in by column or pull it sideways to fill in by rows, until the last cell of your data.

5. Transpose data between row and column

Important Notes!

Flash fill only works on data in column cells.

8. Clipboard

What Do You Use Clipboards For?

Deleting multiple errors when the spreadsheet is already finished can be done by following the steps given.

  • Firstly, go to Home Tab ➜ Editing ➜ Find & Replace ➜ Go To Special.

  • After you’ve selected the range of data, all that’s left is to wait for Excel to transform it and once it’s done, your data will be viewed in the same format as the table you’ve selected before.

16. Impliment Cell Message Into Cells

When collaborating with others on a certain project, sometimes you want another user to avoid make changes to the cells you’ve made. To do this, you might want to put a cell message which will then pop up when someone click on the cell and display the message written on it.

  • Select the cell or range of cells that you want to display the message.

This year WordCamp KL brought in some wonderful speakers from all over the world, who are experienced and an expert in WordPress.

Some of the speakers were Matthew Knighton who was the host and also the speaker, Mayuko Moriyama from Japan, Cesar Tardaguila from Spain, Shaan Nicol, Leonardo Losoviz, etc

During the conference day, it starts at 8:00am and ends at around 5:45pm. The registration was open for one hour, from 8 until 9am which volunteers assisted to help us, like giving name tags, t- shirts and stickers to the participants. There were two tracks for the talks so participants can pick and choose which talk they want to join. 

Furthermore, a total of 17 talks were available for all the participants that came, some of the speakers title were “Create Once, Publish Everywhere with WordPress” by Leonardo Losoviz, Sanjay Willie talk “WordPress CLI in depth” and much more. Each talk was around 30 minutes and there were questions and answers session with the speaker after their talk. 

During break time the participants have time to walk around outside the hall to have a look at exhibitors booths opened by the sponsors. Coffee and tea was also provided during break time, to keep you refreshed and awake. We also made lots of new friends with similar interests in WordPress and the tech world
