My Own Excel Shortcuts list -Mostly professional - I will keep updating

Updated on September 8, 2011

Excel Shortcuts are very helpful

I think whoever uses Excel, knows that every shortcut he learns is a big gift, as it save his time (and time is money- time is your life so you are saving your life for more important things or to be more active and productive)

As accountant & chief accountant now, I try to memorize every one I can find.

Here I will add, just the unique shortcuts, not the common.

hope you will like them.

      Thank you for sharing these! I am always working in Excel and trying to learn new things. All the short cuts I use I have taught myself. I've never looked for a list like this even though I know they are out there. I am going to keep this list handy and try to memorize these to help make my job a little easier.

      Even though, I like more advanced software for a lot of the analysis I do, I find, when making a presentation outside of my circle of Engineers, I get a much better response when I use Excel, the reason I believe is the near universal familiarity people have with the product. I to keep a shortcut list, as for some reason, I have a hard time memorizing them. Thank you for a couple new ones.

      Excel is a great tool - often underutilized. Short cuts on Excel are a big gift. I will have to try these out. Thank you!
