Excel Symbols – do you know what they mean? Take a look at the table below!
This week’s blog is all about Excel symbols. They can be quite simple but if you don’t know what they mean it can be daunting or even frustrating! Some are a lot more obvious than others.
Excel is often used by a lot of people as a way of data entry and so people often do not have to use or understand what these symbols mean as they are already built into the spreadsheets that they use.
But have you ever been in a situation where you have clicked into a cell, exposed the formula and panicked at what you saw? All those symbols jumbled together and not knowing what they mean?
Don’t worry, it happens to us all! So because of this, we decided to put a table into our Basic course as a bit of a ‘Glossary’ to help when you start off learning about Excel! You can also find out a bit more about error messages in Excel by looking below the table!
Excel Symbols Table
Some of you would have been on our Basic Excel course and seen this table in your course notes you took away with you, however some of you wouldn’t have seen it.
So we thought we would share this table with you all that we put together of some of the common used basic symbols in Excel.
We hope you find this table useful! Let us know what you think!
