Do Some Math With Dates Using Your Calculator in Windows

Most folks are not aware of half of the things you can do using your Calculator in Windows. Below is but one of the cool uses.

For planning anything date related, the date calculation function is great. It allows you to calculate the difference between two different dates. For instance if you were born on August 17, 1957, this function will calculate and tell you that on August 17, 2016 you were 21,559 days old! I am not sure that information would be very valuable to you, but there are many other uses for this function, such as wedding invitations, vacations, etc.

Date Calculation

This function will also allow you to add or subtract days from a specific date. Say you have a 4 month deadline – this tool will allow you to figure out what that date will be. Warranties – you can figure out how many days are left!

I am certain you will find lots of uses for this!

Carol's Ramblings

Carol’s Rambling…

Summer is quickly approaching it’s end and it makes me sad.  Oh, I know it will stay warm for a while yet but I like the promise of summer, getting outdoors and doing things you cannot do when it’s cold and planting and watching the fruits of your labor growing – all of that and more!

I have had a very busy summer.  I promised myself that I would get to the office early and take a two mile walk before my work day started every morning and I have pretty much stuck to that all summer long.  I intend to keep it up until it is so cold I cannot do it.  I feel better and look better.  I haven’t really lost any pounds but something went somewhere because I have gone down a size (always a good thing).  I vacationed with the kids and the grandkids and visited back and forth with them.  I went to see bands perform and I took hikes.  All in all, I have had a really nice summer and am grateful for it.

I have also knitted a  bunch of hats for babies at the local hospital and for the homeless.  I try to remember those that are not as fortunate as me and I hope that you all do as well.

I think you will find some very useful tips in this newsletter.  If you have a useful tip, let me know about it.

Until next time, take care of yourselves and each other.  Remember we aren’t in this alone!

How to Quickly Select Entire Columns or Rows in Excel Worksheets

It is always helpful to know both the mouse and keyboard methods to accomplish the task at hand in Excel. Personally, I like to use my keyboard because that is usually where my hands are already!

Below are a few keyboard shortcuts that you will find yourself using all the time – selecting columns and rows.

Follow the steps below to learn how:

  • To select the entire row where your active cell is located, simply depress your Shift key and click on your Spacebar.
  • To select the entire column where the active cell is located, depress your CTRL key and click your spacebar.

It matters not which cell is active when you do this.

  1. You can also select multiple rows and columns using your keyboard:
  2. If you want to select rows 1 through 5, use your arrow key to move to any cell in row 1.
  3. Now depress your Shift key and use the down arrow to select down to row 5.
  4. Click Shift + click Spacebar.

The entire rows of 1 through 7 will be selected.

To select columns A through E, use your arrow key to move the active cell to column A.

  • Depress your Shift key and press your arrow key to select over to column E.
  • Click CTRL + Spacebar.

Now columns A through E will be selected.
