To test the value of using cell references in an Excel formula, change the data in cell C1 from 3 to 6 and press the Enter key on the keyboard.
The answers in both cells D1 and D2 should automatically change from 5 to 8, but the formulas in both remain unchanged.
The tutorial is intended for those with little or no experience in working with spreadsheet programs such as Excel.
If you need help, use the steps below to enter the formula.
While the formula on the previous page works, it has one major drawback - If you need to change the data used in the formula, you need to edit or rewrite the formula.
A better way would be to write a formula so that the data can be changed without having to change the formula itself.
I'm trying to create a spreadsheet file that includes a Master summary page of all the open clients, with workpages for each of the clients behind it.
The client pages were easy, and they include a button for inputting the most recent activity into a list of contacts.
