Technology Column Gets an A

BY JOHN KEEGAN

Once again Technology Q&A discussed an Excel feature that previously I had noticed only in passing. My knowledge of hyperlinks was limited to guessing they had something to do with Web sites. After reading “ Create an Excel Contents Tab ” ( JofA , Aug.05, page 87) and playing with the menu for a few minutes, I much better understand the application of the feature. I had a similar experience with the discussion of conditional formatting (“Shade Alternating Rows or Columns,” page 88).

I live and breathe Excel in my daily work. However, it seems there often are features and tricks I had no knowledge of that may improve my work or make it more interesting. I get more information that directly affects me from this monthly column than the rest of the JofA . Keep up the great work.
