Often when I look at an Excel file, it just has way too much information. Rows upon rows of data. How do I make heads or tails of it? Lately, I have been using tables and slicers to assist in the sorting and filtering of my data. The great thing about tables and slicers is that I can quickly get down to the granularity level that I need. I also don't need to create as many tabs as I can filter the data. Please follow the steps below to create your first table and slicer.

We often use excel to organize and communicate the data. Unfortunately, this sometimes takes manually copying and pasting from one file to another. And often the data is not quite in the format we need and my format is all messed up. Excel (and many other office products) have many special pasting features that allow you to format the data just as you would like. These options are found simply by right clicking on the area you want to paste the data, and then clicking on "Paste Special.."(Also using Ctrl+Alt+V). Try out values and transpose. They have saved me hours over the years.
