How can you reverse text in Excel? There is not a REVERSE function. You've recently seen me do this with a VBA loop.

In a special guest appearance on the 40th anniversary of the release of 867-5309 (Jenny), the lead...

(For Power Ball, there are 292 million combinations!). Listing all combinations will be difficult because Excel only includes 1,048,576 rows. In this video, I show how to enable Macros in your...
There are a pair of well known Excel tricks with MATCH: Find the last item in a long list of items that might contain empty cells. Find the only number in a range of Error or Text values.

In this video, we dive in to how the binary search works in MATCH. We see how to adjust XMATCH to find the last item in a list. But there is no...
The Windows Clipboard (in Windows 10 or Windows 11) can now sync across devices. Copy from one computer and paste to another computer! No more mailing stuff to yourself just to get from this computer to the other. (Here at my office, I have a file called PassToOtherMachine.txt in Dropbox and use that daily. Sync across devices is amazing. But the Windows clipboard also has a Clipboard History feature that is missing an important button: Paste All. I will show you the very obscure feature...
