  • No matter how long you’ve used Excel, there’s always a little trick or two that you can learn. Glen Gilchrist finally found the feature that lets you quickly delete blank rows. As he says, “splendiferous!”
  • They’ve never been disagreeable with me, but in his latest podcast, Chandoo explains that Averages are Mean. And they must be really mean, because there will be a part 2, later this week.
  • There was an Excel Summit in Amsterdam earlier this month, and you can see a few pictures on the MVP Blog. Looks like everyone had a great time, and learned a few new tricks.

Excel Resources

Here are some upcoming events, courses and recently published books, related to Excel.
