Dome Shot says:

I really enjoyed learning what I didn’t already know. When adding the dates into the G column, would it have been easier to make a cell with that days current date (for example – D1) and then have each G cell have a formula of something like =D1+3? That way you wouldn’t have to do what you were doing each time. I was just curious.

Steph B says:

I have Excel 2007, but my “header” looks different than the one in your video. I like yours better — shows more buttons. Can you tell me how to do that?

Angela Udechukwu says:

Question, If I come back to the list and want to add more data, how would I accomplish this please. For example, lets say I’m keeping everything alphabetized and I come across another item that needs to go in the C’s, how would I accomplish that? Thanks in advance for your assistance. God Bless.

Very nice and interesting video. Great presentation. A big well done to the presenter. If I may, I would like to share some things which might help.

3:22 Since all returns will be in 3 days, rather than entering 3 in the formula, the number 3 is entered in cell G3. The formula instead of =B5+3 make it =B5+$G$3. You’ll understand how this is better as continue to read.

5:05 All you have to do is instead of Control ‘ (apostrophe) make it Control d  (Press control and the letter d. This copies the cell above and no need to press “enter” every time. (This is also good for when “Blu Ray was copied”. Also no adjustments to the formula are needed with control d.

In addition to this, if you decide to change from 3 days to receive the dvd back, to 4 days or 7 days etc, just change the number in G3 and they will all change. This will save from going through all the formulas to change each one of them.
