  1. Excel seems to be a very useful tool. It has a lot of useful functions and experts like yourself can always show us how to use it. Just curious, do the sheets in Google drive work have the same user functions as excel?

    • Thank you Ekufaa. Google sheets comes nowhere near as excel in terms of its complex functionality available. However, Google Sheets is free to use, so one cannot really complain. Hope this helps 🙂

  2. Hi Habib,

    Thanks for this useful tip to sort data in excel. I must admit that I make the number in an ascending order one by one before I watch your video, and it saves me tons of time now. Will love to come back for more videos from you.


    • Oh gosh Matt – that gives me pain hearing you used to do it manually. Now you know, you can sort and order with a few clicks 🙂

  3. I always found sorting data harder to do, but I am glad you covered this in your tutorial. Now it is much clearer to me! I will keep on following your tutorials, to refresh my Excel skills 🙂
    Thank you!

  4. Excellent tutorial on sorting. I will have to start using this, it will be a time saver. Thank you for cautioning us about using the first method when having totals or other data that might not fit into the sorting data.

  5. Excel really is a great tool. It’s pretty amazing to learn everything you can do with it. I didn’t know how to sort data in ascending order, so this was another great tutorial for me!

    • Sorting data in excel is the key to organising your spreadsheets as you wish – whether it is in ascending or descending order. Excel is amazing 🙂
