This is a true story with modification… I can’t believe it happened when I first heard it, but then I realize some changes made on Excel 2016 (not sure if also in Excel 2013).
Here’s today humor:
If you are working with Excel 2010 (which I am most most most of the time), you probably know that when you select a range, the cells selected turn dark (grey) and you will see any texts in white, if any, in the selection.
To my surprise (in a positive way), that behavior get improved in Excel 2016. The following screen cast demonstrates the scenario in Excel 2016:
Having said that, we may still read the content from the formula bar. So don’t turn your text in white and think that no one can read them. ;p
Joke aside… NEVER put sensitive / confidential data on a workbook that you are going to share with someone who are not supposed to see those data. Next week I will show you a simple way to “look” into hidden worksheets even the worksheets cannot be unhidden.
