Professor Dumbledore keeps his budget in Excel, and wants to be able to click on a button to add another period each month:
What the spreadsheet should look like after clicking on the button shown
Help Professor Dumbledore fulfil his wishes by:
- Recording a macro to accomplish the task shown, using a suitable combination of absolute and relative recording (and indeed the hint below)
- Adding a button as shown and attaching this macro to it
Note that you are allowed to edit the macro after you've recorded it.
Your macro might, for example, select period 1 using absolute references, then switch to relative cell references to go to the end of the row of data, etc.
Save this as Adding period.
