Join Dennis Taylor for an in-depth discussion in this video Work with formulas in tables, part of Excel Tips Weekly.
- [Voiceover] If you convert data to a table,…you get some visual advantages, but you also get…some formula capability that's not exactly obvious.…I've got a worksheet here and it's not a table,…but I'm going to convert it into a table.…There are four ways to convert data to a table.…Before doing that, make sure that the data…you're working with is in a solid cluster,…no empty rows, no empty columns within the data.…There are empty cells out there in Column I, that's okay.…I'll click on one of the cells and press Control+A.…Then press Control+. a few times.…This moves the active cell around the corners.…
