Is it me? (Excel)

by MarkFlax Forum moderator / April 27, 2005 8:32 PM PDT

Is it me? Or are there really very few questions on Excel problems in this forum any more?

I'm no expert on Excel, self taught which perhaps is the worst sort of expert, Happy but I used to enjoy tackling some of the problems that were posted, or reading other peoples' solutions.

Ahh well. Perhaps everyone has become an expert now with all our good advice and help in the past!

OK, Mark. I am a pre-beginner with MS Excel 2002. The question: How do I "select all" at a worksheet like I am able to do so with MS Word, so as to format fonts, cells, etc. "at one go" ? It may be very simple to do so, but I do not know it. I am only able to "select" individual cell, row or column, or select a section of the worksheet by draging from one cell to the cell of the opposite corner....

(NT) Control-a or that topleft square of the sheet?

Waiting for sooooo long for an excel question and I get beaten to it!!

Bob is right of course. Just above row 1 and just to the left of column A is a square. Click that and it highlights the whole worksheet.

Thanks, Bob, and Mark-

that little square looks so innocent. There should have been a "Select All" at the Edit menu; but come to think of it, it is logical- that square selects all rows and all columns. I should have thought of that. Thanks again.
