Join Dennis Taylor for an in-depth discussion in this video Auditing, part of Excel Tips Weekly.
- Excel has a number of auditing tools…that let you figure out what's going on in a worksheet.…A financial worksheet like this…could be somewhat complex.…Actually, this worksheet is not well-structured.…Maybe the person who is designing it didn't quite finish it.…It's difficult to figure out what's going on.…It's certainly going to be helpful to find formulas.…We can do that quickly and easily…by going to the Formulas tab…and clicking the option Show Formulas.…As you click it, notice what happens.…All column widths have been doubled.…And more important is the idea that you are seeing formulas…wherever they exist, for example, here in cell B7.…
Now, the idea behind doubling the width of the columns…is to give you a better opportunity…to potentially see the entire formula.…Some of these formulas are even wider than the…actual column anyway.…What you could do if you wanted to print this,…you could click in the upper-left corner,…double click a column boundary, any column boundary,…and then possibly print this.…Ctrl + F2 will give us a print preview.…
