September 5, 2008, Newsletter Issue #272: Save time on data entry in Excel

Tip of the Week

If you find yourself typing the same information a number of times in the same column, Excel has a really useful īpick from listī feature which can save you loads of time.

If you right click the Excel cell where you want to enter data, there is an option called Pick From List. This will bring up a list of all entries above the cell (in the same column) and you can select the relevant one.

The same thing can be achieved by holding down the Alt key and pressing the down arrow. Please note - neither of the above will function correctly if there are blank rows in your data.
