You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our blogs. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.

Excel Quick Tip #4 - Selecting a Table

When you have an entire table of cells to select there's a much quicker way than simply clicking and dragging with the mouse.

  1. Click on any cell within the block of data that you want to select.
Selecting a single cell

Here we've clicked on the cell in the second row and second column of the block of data we want to select.

  1. Press CTRL + A on the keyboard.
Selected block

Excel selects all of the cells up to the next completely blank row and column.

You can see this technique in action in this short video.
