excel tip

Don’t start at A1!

Alright, it doesn’t sound like an “excel trick”, but some people create and share spreadsheets that have no content in column A and no content in row 1. They always start the content in B2. Because it feels nice to have some blank space to play with if necessary. You can also use this space as a helper column to perform a lookup to the data and save your time without needing to insert new rows or columns.
