Creating a formula in a table automatically causes the formula to be copied down the column. Table formulas include the field name (the column header) automatically unless you type specific cell addresses. Although unwieldy, table formulas provide better documentation and eliminate unnecessary formula copying.
- [Voiceover] There's one aspect of working with tables…that for some people is not a plus.…It's how we work with formulas.…Now there are some advantages to the method…we'll be seeing here,…and potentially some disadvantages.…This worksheet's called Table Formulas.…This data has been converted to a table,…I have turned off the filter arrows,…we don't need them in this movie,…but I'm about to add a new field to the right…to calculate a new compensation.…And as we start to work with formulas in tables…you'll see some unusual notation pop up.…
I'm going to zoom in by holding down Control,…using the mouse wheel,…and as I put a heading in here…if you work with tables you know that immediately…this heading and the remainder of column K…down to the bottom of the list…will automatically become part of the table.…We've got compensation amounts in column J,…the heading here is gonna be called New Comp.…And as I press Enter you see what's happening,…the column is automatically part of the table.…I'm going to run a formula here…
