Working with Ranges

In Excel, a range is a group of two or more cells that work together rather than separately.  The range is the basic function that makes Excel a powerful tool, and it is discussed in this module. We start by learning how to fill a range with values, move or copy them, and insert or delete them.  After that we discuss range names and how to use them.  We conclude by discussing how to format fonts, colors, alignments, numbers, column widths, row heights, and other range options.
Selecting and Populating Ranges
