    4. 4. Editing a Worksheet<br />When you have built several worksheets, you start to see lots of things you would like to change<br />You can: <br />change column width and row heights<br />move and copy one or more cells or data<br />use built-in tools that make data entry fast and easy<br />print only parts of a worksheet instead of the whole worksheet<br />
    5. 5. Objectives<br />Work with ranges<br />Change column width and row height<br />Copy and paste data<br />Move data<br />Use AutoFill<br />
    6. 6. Working with Ranges<br />Range—group of adjacent cells that form a rectangle; can be a single row or column<br />Range address—identifies the location of this rectangle in the worksheet [upper left cell:lower right cell]<br />Range is C5:D14<br />
    7. 7. Selecting a Range of Cells<br />Drag the pointer across adjacent cells to select the range<br />Click a column or row heading to select the entire column/row<br />Make one corner of the range cell the active cell; then press Shift and click the opposite corner of the range<br />
    8. 8. Changing the Column Width and Row Height<br />Text that is too long to fit in its cell flows into the cell on the right if the cell is empty<br />If the cell on the right is not empty, the label is cut off<br />When a number (value) is too large to fit in a cell, ### symbols appear<br />
    9. 9. Changing the Column Width<br />Place the pointer on the vertical border between the column headings. (A two-headed arrow appears)<br />Drag to the right to widen the column; drag to the left to make it narrower<br />A ScreenTip displays the width as you drag<br />

Release the mouse button.<br />
    12. 12. Using AutoFill<br />Series—a list of numbers, labels, or dates that follow a pattern (1,2,3,4…) (Jan., Feb., Mar…)<br />Use AutoFill to fill in a series in a row or column<br />Use the fill handle to fill the range<br />Fill handle—small black rectangle in the lower right corner of a selected cell/range<br />
    13. 13. Using AutoFill<br />Key the first number, label, or date in the first cell where you want your series to begin<br />Select the cell, and position the pointer on the fill handle<br />Drag across the row or down the column, filling the range with the series<br />
