Once you come back to amend, or enhance or troubleshoot your spread sheet, what made sense at the time of development, may not be so obvious at a later date.

If you seek to speed up copying a cell across a row or down a column you need to select the desired cell which needs to be copied.

Then you need to hold down the left mouse button and drag it across either the row or column till the time all the cells you want to paste into are already selected. Youll see that if you release the button now your first cell will now be copied to all the selected cells. Instant Charts in Excel Spreadsheets OK this very sweet.
