Some worksheets have blank cells, so it's easier to read headings in a column. I used to work with lots of data like that, which was imported from an accounting system.
It's fine for printing a report, but if you want to sort or filter that data, you'll need to fill in those blanks.
Here are the steps to fill the blank cells manually, and there's a video on my site that shows the steps:

Here are a couple of Excel articles that you might find useful or interesting.
Slicers - In a short video, Bill Jelen shows how to get the selections from a Slicer, and list them in a cell, as a worksheet title. You'll need Office 365 for this technique, because it uses the new TEXTJOIN function (Level - Intermediate)
Excel Skills - If you want to test your Excel skills (or someone else's), Sumit Bansal posted a list of 100 Excel Interview questions. The topics range from formatting to macros. (Level - All)
We just celebrated the first long weekend of summer, here in Canada, and the weather wasn't very summery. At least it wasn't as cold as the year that we went camping in the Rockies at the end of May. There was still snow on the ground, and beautiful Lake Louise was frozen solid. On the bright side, the bears were still hibernating!
That's it for this week! If you have any comments or questions, send me an email.
