Now it's time to practice what you've learned. You'll rename a worksheet, move from sheet to sheet, and learn keyboard shortcuts to do that.

For something new, you'll add color to sheet tabs, which makes them easier to tell apart. Then you'll add and delete worksheets and learn how to use the Name Box.

And at the end, if you want to, you'll save a workbook.

About the practice session

When you click Practice in Excel, a practice worksheet will download to your computer and open in Excel, and a separate window with practice instructions will appear alongside (see picture).

Note     You need to have Excel 2003 installed on your computer.

Tips

  • If the practice instructions aren't visible, or if they disappear when you click in Excel, click the Excel Help taskbar button and then click the Auto Tile button in the upper-left corner of the instructions.
  • If the practice instructions cover up Excel, click the Auto Tile button in the upper-left corner of the instructions.
