  1. Thanks for this great tutorial .

    I’ve always found Excel difficult, and other tutorials have left me struggling. Your site has really helped me get on top of my excel issues.

    This is something that I have avoided dealing with for some time so having access to everything I need to learn here on your site is a fantastic resource for me.

    Thanks again for setting out this useful information.

  2. Hi Habib

    Wow-what a great tutorial and educational site. I’m impressed with your layout and it’s very user friendly.
    I’ve always struggled a little with Excel so your site is going to come in handy for sure. The formulas are what rattles me up lol. I love that I can access everything I need to know about excel in lessons that are easily laid out. I find that working in an office environment, not being comfortable with excel has held me back so I’m grateful I stumbled across your site.
    Thanks again for this very useful information.

    All the best


    • Thank you so much for your lovely feedback about our site. You will love our YouTube channel too 🙂

  3. Hey, Habib. I enjoyed watching your excel lessons on Youtube. I just found out some functions from Excel and I could not expect that Excel had many extraordinary functions, which could use formulas so that it was easy to calculate data in tables. Thanks for sharing this post.

  4. Thanks for this excellent post on excel – I use excel every single day for so many things from tracking my personal finances to creating my shopping lists and all my personal and business planning. I make use of the autosum button all the time, it is so useful and one of the things I love the most about excel.

    • That’s great to hear Lynne. Now lets get everybody else to use excel too because it has so many amazing features such as this Autosum to make peoples lives so much more easier. Thanks for the encouraging words – my visitors will benefit from it surely 🙂

  5. Hi Habibrani,
    I have worked with excel for the years time. When I watched your video tutorial your teaching is excellent and clear. It is very useful not only to the beginners but also to the others. When need to add some numbers amounts together I too have to try with several clicks (trial & error) but furthermore I don’t need waste time because your methods with AUTOSUM stay in my mind. Thank you for valuable tutorial. Keep it up.

    • Thank you so much Jayantha for the lovely compliments about my teaching. I am an ICT by profession, and I must say I do get a lot of compliments on my teaching style 🙂
      The Autosum is a great feature and saves you a lot of time. I have many other video lessons here and on our YouTube channel, so please check them out too.

  6. Hi Habib. Thank you for the step by step guide of how to use the AUTOSUM. Learn something new today again! Looking forward for the next lesson.

  7. Thank you for this useful and easy-to-follow tutorial on these topics. As almost everyone uses Excel, knowledge and proficiency on many of its functions such as AutoSum would come very handy. More power to you.

    • You’re welcome. Excel is such a powerful software and it is not commonly used. I am trying to break down the technical barriers so everyone will start using it with ease. The Autosum button does an amazing adding up, but people are not using it! Take care

  8. Hey Habib,

    Keep up the great work, with each one of these lessons you make my day at work easier and definitely much more efficient. This is another bookmarked one for later reference.


    • You’re very welcome Tyler and thank you. Great idea to bookmark it and come back to learn when you have time. You will be a whiz kid at work soon and your colleagues will be asking you for help 🙂

  9. Thanks for showing a quick way of adding up our numbers in the excel spreadsheet. I’ll use this on the next project I have requiring a long addition.

  10. I have been teaching computer studies for over 10 years and I think you have a very good way of teaching excel, piece by piece and very clear. It’s very easy to understand, keep up the good work.

    • Thank you very much James. A compliment from a tutor is the best one. If you do have any advice or tips for me, please do let me know 🙂

  11. Another great lesson! Sometimes I forget to use this so I thank you for the reminder. If you take requests I would love to learn about the VLookup function. I can never get that to work.

    Thanks for the guidance!

    • Thank you Kevin. Yes I do take requests, and I have made a list for that 🙂
      I will be doing a lesson on Vlookups soon, so watch out for that. I promise I will make it very easy for you. Take care

      Habib (ICT Tutor)

  12. A great explanation on how to use the auto-sum button to quickly add cells in excel.

    We all use Excel but I’d like to bet many don’t know these functions which makes life so much easier.

    I only use a few functions myself but used to use more and it’s great to be able to have a refresher so thank you for that.

    Great article.
