Go To Special

Go To Special is a somewhat neglected, but sometimes very useful option that allows us to position ourselves in individual places in an Excel table according to their properties. These can be empty rows, formulas, precedents, dependents, cells with data validation, etc. In this text, you will learn how to start this option, and you will also see two examples of its application in practice.

Version History

Version History is a great feature that can be used by all Microsoft 365 subscribers who store files on a SharePoint or OneDrive repository. Storing files in the cloud brings a lot of benefits, one of which is the overview of all versions and the ability to restore a previous version of an Excel document that was worked on by one or more users.

Advanced Formula Environment

Writing Excel formulas with the help of Name Manager can be a demanding job. When you write simple formulas, you will still somehow manage. With complex formulas or changing existing ones, there is a high chance that you will make a mistake. The LAMBDA feature allows you to create your own functions as names added in the Name Manager, and to make this job easier, Microsoft has created an Excel add-in for creating complex formulas: Advanced Formula Environment.

LED chart

The LED chart is not a chart, in the true sense of the word, but it looks nice and is a good choice to illustrate Variance analysis report. We make it so that, after analyzing the percentage for which the plan was exceeded or missed, with the help of the REPT function, generate a certain number of “squares” to illustrate the obtained result.
