…In the previous movie, I showed you how to create a one variable data…table to see how changing one value, such as a tax rate, affects a calculation.…In this movie, I will show you how to create a two variable data table, which…as the name implies, let's you try out a range of values for two formula inputs.…As my sample file, I will use tax and income, which you…can find in the chapter one folder of your exercise files archive.…This worksheet…contains a series of values.
