    Darren Hall: Hi Mariana, great videos! I didn’t know about using F4 for repeating formatting. SImilar to this trick is double clicking on the format paintbrush, it holds to format that you want to ulilize and you can go from place to place and use the same format – for a cell, a row, a column or a range. You likely knew that though!

    Mariana: Great point, Darren – thanks for sharing this option. That’s the beauty of Excel: there are often many ways to accomplish something. It’s just a case of finding the one that is most efficient and effective for YOU.
