How to Update Data in an Existing Worksheet
Updating data in an existing Excel worksheet presents several methods based on the worksheet setup and the type of data you're incorporating. Here, we'll illustrate three different methods for adding new data to an existing worksheet.
- Adding Data to the End of an Existing WorksheetIf your worksheet allows for new data at the bottom, simply scroll down and input the new information. This method suits linearly structured data, like a monthly budget in Excel.
- Adding Data to an Existing RowFor data addition in an existing row, navigate to the desired row, click on the cell, and input the data. This method fits tabular data, such as tracking exercise progress.
- Adding Data to an Existing ColumnAdding data to an existing column involves scrolling to the desired column and entering the new data. This is useful for information applicable to all rows, such as tracking stock prices.
