Excel: Cleaning Data

The Need:

Do any of the following apply to you?

  • Do you have spreadsheets that need data correcting before you can use them constructively?
  • Do you spend a lot of time correcting the data prior to actually utilising it?
  • Do you receive imported data that needs to be modified before it can put to use?
  • Do you need to separate content from a cell into multiple cells?
  • Do you need to correct the case (upper or lower case)?
  • Are there additional spaces that need to be removed?
  • or maybe there are a lot of duplicate entries that need to be removed?
  • Do you need to find any cells that contain formulas, data validation, blanks or conditional formatting?
