Another handy feature is the ability to remove duplicates from any selection (you can also do this by clicking the Data tab, and then selecting ‘Remove Duplicates’). This is especially useful when working with lists where there may be multiple entries of the same item e.g. names where there may be several Harry Potters.

This feature is incredibly handy when you have a formula in one cell that you want to copy across many other cells, but you don’t want to duplicate any hidden rows or columns in the process. Simply select the cell that has the formatting you want to share, and then press the ‘format painter’ icon in the top navigation (it looks like a little paintbrush). Then just click and drag across the other cells you want to apply the same format to.

This is one of those features that you probably never thought about until you use it, and then can’t live without it! It saves a lot of clicks and scrolling when you need to quickly get back to the edge of the sheet.
