  • Using the CLEAN and TRIM functions to eliminate non-printing characters, such as tabs, carriage returns, and spaces, in your data that can trigger #VALUE! and other errors.
  • Transforming dates and numbers into various formats without retyping by way of custom number formats.
  • Gaining control over long lists of data by filtering instead of sorting.
  • Learning how the Table feature allows you to transform filtering tasks.
