So that's how! Working with really big worksheets

Work with ease in really big worksheets
Learn how to work with ease in really big Microsoft Excel worksheets. Keep column and row names in sight no matter where you are on a worksheet, navigate to the far end of the largest worksheet by using a keyboard shortcut, move and copy sheets, and filter and sort data by using the AutoFilter arrows.

About this course

This course includes:

  • Two self-paced lessons and two practice sessions for hands-on experience.
  • A short test at the end of each lesson; tests are not scored.
  • A Quick Reference Card you can take away from the course.


After completing this course you will be able to:

  • Freeze panes to keep names in place while you scroll through data, or split panes to get different views of the data in your worksheet at the same time.
  • Name cells or ranges of cells so that you can quickly return to those worksheet regions.
  • Navigate quickly by using keyboard shortcuts and the Go To dialog box.
  • Group worksheets to enter common data in multiple worksheets simultaneously.
  • Filter and sort data by using the AutoFilter arrows.
  • Print multiple worksheets at the same time.

Do you want to keep column or row names in sight as you scroll down a worksheet so that you know what the data in the middle or the bottom of the sheet refers to? Perhaps you'd like to use keyboard shortcuts to navigate quickly back and forth across a worksheet.

Learn about great ways to work faster and easier in Excel on really big worksheets (although what you learn here will help you out on worksheets of lesser size as well).

Find out how to save time by creating multiple worksheets with common data or formatting at one time, how to print just a certain area of a worksheet instead of an entire worksheet, and how to print multiple worksheets at the same time.
