  4. Wow — I never stop learning here at Lifestyle Tips & Hacks. Excel is such a difficult program for me, and I LOVE that I can come here and find out everything I need to know. It is my one-stop-shop for helpful office skills! I hope to put Excel on my resume under the “skills” category very soon.

    I am a little embarrassed to say that I knew nothing about labels in Excel until now — but you learn something new every day right?!

    Thanks again.

  5. Hello Habib,
    another great lesson in Excel. Proper labeling is of great important and adding colors makes graphs so much easier to read. And it’s really not hard to learn how to do it. You explain it so calmly and patiently
    Thank you so much!

    • Explaining calmly and with a lot patience is so important in my profession – otherwise students will not learn effectively. Take care

  6. That’s a great informative tutorial, thanks! Believe it or not, I’ve actually had lots of trouble correctly managing the data labels, as I’ve just recently finished my bachelor’s paper.

    I think I’ll also go through your 37 lessons slowly, checking if my knowledge has missed some useful tips and tricks.

    Thanks again!

  7. Hi Habib,
    Excel is for me the best friendly and easiest software to work with when you know about it. It does everything you want. I worked in a mill in 2000 and I had to organise the schedule for 147 employees and 25 machines. I took a spreadsheet of excel and added some formulas and excel software did all the work for me. So let me tell you when people know how to work with excel it is one of the most easiest software to work with.

    • That is great information to share. You are right about excel, it does automate a lot of tasks for us when create and set it up correctly.
