2. Use Autofill for Formulas

Skill #2 to learn is using autofill for formulas. If you write a formula at the bottom of one column – for example averaging all of the values in that column – you can use this same autofill feature to do the same calculation at the bottom for each other columns as well.


You do it the same way as last skill. Click and hold the lower right corner of the cell where you just typed in the formula, and then drag it to the right to across the other columns.


When you release the mouse, all of those columns will calculate automatically at the bottom cell. You do not need to calculate each column separately, it can save lots of time.
