In the earlier lecture we were talking about copying and pasting cutting and pasting data, I showed you how to insert a new worksheet, at the bottom of screen and the newer releases of Excel. You got a little plus sign(+), that you can get to in the earlier releases like 2007 and earlier It is not a plus sign but it looks like a little star Sun icon . you can click on that to insert a new sheet.
You can also right click a sheet name, then click Insert to Insert new Sheet.
Now there were a number of other options in there, the one of them that I want to talk about here is renaming a worksheet, by default You add a new worksheet and excel automatically creates the new worksheet and you get something called Sheet1 or Sheet2 or Sheet3 and 4 or 5 and so on. We talked about that way or a way or there used to be like 255 worksheets per workbook. But in the more recent editions of Excel Microsoft bumped that up. You do not really want it low to worksheets Do not you do not want thousands of worksheets and workbooks, that are really slowed down. it will take forever to open, but it is all based on the memory of your computer. and the performance of your computer that it can really handle more and more worksheets.
But renaming sheets simple the do you want to keep them organized. Give them names that are relevant to the content that is found within that worksheet that makes it easier to find.
Really simply want to rename a worksheet. I just double click the worksheet tab, so Sheet1 I want to call that monthly budget.
Double click on Sheet1, type “monthly budgets” then hit Enter key. I have now renamed that sheet.
I like shortcuts of double clicking on the tabs as quick and easy to do. You can also right click then select Rename command.
It is quick and easy to do, something that we commonly overlooked and really give some thought to it. This would be similar to create folders on your computer right. You got a name those folders something that is intuitive something that that gives descriptive information.
