You can quickly fill blank cells in a range of data in Excel with dashes, zeros or other number or text values. Blank cells can be problematic if you want to use a data set as the source for a pivot table.
You can convert cm to inches (or inches to cm) using formulas with operators or functions in Excel. This is useful since the regional settings on a computer affect the default measurement system used in Excel and other programs.
You can hide comments and notes in Excel workbooks. In addition to adding comments in Excel, there is a little known function called the N function that you can use to enter notes directly within a formula. The N function has been around for a long time so you can use it in older versions of Excel.
You can delete blank rows in Microsoft Excel worksheets manually or you can use several tricks to delete multiple blank rows quickly. First, it’s essential that Excel users know how to select rows quickly using shortcuts or by using Excel commands such as Go to Special, Filter and Sort.

You can remove comments in Word by right-clicking, using the Review tab in the Ribbon or using the Inspector. The problem with comments is that they may be hidden if markup is not displayed. It’s a good idea to display markup and then remove comments.
You can change or fix the format of a number field in a Microsoft Word mail merge document using switches in field codes. Number formatting issues tend to occur when the source document for the mail merge is an Excel workbook or Access database.
You can create labels in Microsoft Word by running a mail merge. This is typically used to generate and print bulk mailing labels for names and addresses of clients or other contacts. You’ll need to create a main document for the labels in Word and then connect to a data set or list in an Excel worksheet.
