Use conditional formatting to make significant data stand out with icons or shaded color cells; convert large lists into tables and gain additional data manipulation tools along with vast visual improvements; instead of creating elaborate charts that might require a lot of tweaking to get them just right, consider using sparklines (in-cell charts) that provide a visual complement to your data as well as displaying vital trend information. Excel has a wealth of other visual tools as well that let you present information with increased clarity and visual appeal.

You’ll also learn the benefit of inserting pictures, ClipArt, and shapes as well as how re-configure them and add text. Plus, find out how to set up check boxes and scroll bars to simplify data entry chores.
