To enter data in Excel, simply select a cell and type. You’ll see the content start to appear in both the cell and the formula bar. Then to submit the data just hit enter. To edit a cell’s data double click and to delete it press the delete button while the cell is selected. Pressing enter automatically moves you down a cell while shift + enter moves you up a cell. Hitting tab moves you one cell to the right . Shift + tab moves you one cell to the left. Or you can select the cell range you want to fill in before you start typing, then when you hit enter you’ll automatically move to the next cell in that range.
However, as you enter more and more cells with data you’ll start to encounter formatting issues as cell content begins to overlap etc. Not only this, but entering data into each cell individually can end up taking ages if you have a large data set. This is where the following tips can really streamline how you enter and format data in your sheets!
Excel can detect sequences in your data, allowing you to autofill anything that’s sequential, such as a series of numbers or days of the week. For example, by typing in Monday followed by Tuesday and 1 followed by 2, the autofill tool can be used to quickly complete these sequences.
