Microsoft Excel is probably the most under-utilised software in the world. Millions of people use it every day, not realising there is usually a quick or easier method of doing the repetitive tasks and calculations they are making. Excel’s capabilities are so vast, when you dig a little deeper and look into it. Learning more about it can help make you the ‘Excel Whizz’ at work and enhance your career opportunities, as well as saving you a lot of time and aggravation.


It is believed that only 1% of Excel users know how to create a table (basically just hover over your dataset and hit Ctrl + T) and something as simple as that makes so many other Excel tasks that much easier!


When you are figuring out how to do something in Excel, there are usually at least 3 or 4 different ways of doing it. It is impossible to learn all of them, but this website aims to share simple solutions to some of the most common problems, so you can stop wasting time doing things the long way.
