  • I’m not sure what I’m going to show you is extreme. But I’m going to share the things I do in Excel everyday that make my life easier.
  • I wouldn’t call myself lazy, but Excel does help me find an easy way to do a hard job.
  • Each new function or formula I learn starts because I’m in purgatory. I need to do something or someone asks for a certain report. Excel is how I get from purgatory to paradise.
  • Keep a text file with all of your functions and annotate them. I don’t always remember specific Excel functions. Sometimes I won’t use one for a while but I know I’v solved this before. That’s why you need this file. You should have one for Excel, one for RegEx, one for SQL and one for PHP.
  • When I get stuck I Google it and find someone else who’s figured it out. Seriously, this Google thing … it’s kinda useful. I think it’s going to work out for them.
  • You could do this with a pivot table but I find this quicker and easier and I’m only doing it so I can get another piece of information.
  • So, like most sites, the traffic pattern for the weekday versus the weekend differ. No surprise. Here, I’m going to use Monday through Thursday to come up with a new formula.
  • Simply average of that month doesn’t account for the fact that each month has different days with different traffic profiles.
  • Everyday I'm Excellin'
