Entering and Editing Data
You can enter three types of data in a worksheet: text, numbers, and formulas. Text is any entry that is not a number or formula. Numbers are values that are used when making calculations. Formulas are calculations.
Excel’s AutoComplete feature keeps track of text entered in a column and can complete other entries in the same column. For example, if you typed GCFLearnFree.org in cell A1 and enter G in A2, Excel automatically fills the cell with GCFLearnFree.org. If GCF Global Learning is the text you want to enter, press Enter or Tab to move to the next cell. If it’s not what you want, just keep typing until you overwrite the AutoComplete feature.
