Working with Cells

When working with Excel cells function options are available that allow you to save time and work much easier within the program.

To drag and drop information:

Select Cells for Drag and Drop
Drag and Drop

To use the fill handle to fill cells:

Fill Handle in Corner
Fill Handle

The fill handle doesn't always copy information from one cell directly into another cell. Depending on the data entered in the cell, it may fill the data in other ways. For example, if you have the formula =A1+B1 in cell C1 and use the fill handle to fill the formula into cell C2, the formula doesn't appear the same in C2 as it does in C1. Instead of =A1+B1, you will see =A2+B2.

You can use the fill handle to fill cells horizontally or vertically.
