Hello Shweta Singh,
To be good in Excel is a relative term.
It has plenty of features.
Accountants and Engineers use it a great deal.
You have not given your background.
The best way would be to practice and learn theory.
Again practice with the new learnings.
Go on repeating the cycles.
I have attached one small guide.

Hello Shweta Singh,
You have now quite a few Xl attachments in the above postings
that will help you to understand the theoretical aspects.
Go on practising.
If your job does not offer much scope try to help out a colleague
of yours who has a lot of jobs on Xl.
Learn and Practice is the slogan to be remembered and followed.

dear mr jain

i see tqo queries in ur post

i will try and answer one by one

remove the formulas

once you have finished with a formula and got your answer or answers , select the answers and do a copy [ctrl + C]

the answers will get covered by moving ants box

select a new cell to paste data


click on "values"

and then click on paste or ctrl +v

the new cells will have only the values and not the formula

now if want u can delete the earlier obtained results [ if u dont want to do more calcualtions based on them]

the values u have pasted will be numeric and will not be linked to the formula or earlier cells

any correction you do to the base data will not affect the value pasted as they are no more interlinked .

merging work sheets

the only way to merge worksheets into one work sheet is to select all copy and paste in the sheet u want to retain .

i advice select a cell easy to remember so that u can do ctrl+g and reach there when ever u want .

u can also format the cells and use different color for each work sheet u have copied and pasted in you master sheet

Dear Dr Ram
Thanks for your prompt reply.
Kindly understand my need and advise accordingly. I am using so many work Books of Excel and each work book are having several number of sheets. If I shall use your technique to eleiminate the formula I have to go sheet by sheet and it will be troublesome task for me.
I want that if there is any command or short cut by which I can remove the formulas of entire work book of several sheets at once, it will be a great help to me.
Similary if I copy each sheet and paste on one sheet it again troublesome and time taking. If there is any procedure by which I can bring a work Book of 50 sheets on one single sheet (merging all) than it will be great relief.
I hope I shall get some solution.

Have a nice day...........

Combining several sheets can be done by using VBA as suggested by Dr Ram sir.It will be always useful, as far as data structure is concerned,it should be a single table, no merged cells, data fragmented (means much legands). This table may be a payroll, PF statement, leave record or anything. Will this kind of simple single table data structure in EXCEL you can use fucntions, VBAs, pivots and many more.
