"Success is the sum of small efforts - repeated day in and day out." -- Robert Collier

Got an Excel tip that you use that can be carried out in less than a minute?
Please share it with me so I can use it in this newsletter to help others 'excel in seconds'. Be sure to put 'EXCEL IN SECONDS' in the subject line of your email.

Hope you enjoy this today's tip.

Take care and keep on Excelling,
