Moving Cells in MS Excel

Dennis Faas's picture

Ever enter your data into the wrong cell in your spreadsheet? I know I've done that a couple of hundred times or so. If you get distracted as easily as I do, I am happy to tell you that there is a quick and easy method to move that data to the proper cell.

Follow the steps below:

  • Select the cell(s) and move the mouse over the edge of the selected cells until your cursor turns into a pointer.  
  • Use the mouse to grab the cell by one of the edges and hold down the mouse button.  
  • Drag the data or formula to a new location.  
  • When you reach the new location, simply release the mouse button.

I think this is a quick and easy way to take care of that frustrating issue.
