Whichever version of Excel you are using, you will see a lot of useful information about your worksheet/workbook in the Status Bar. Having said, many users are not aware of the presence of the status bar. Are you one of them?
Today, I want to highlight the “Workbook Statistics” which is available in Excel 365.
Simply click on it, then it will open the following dialog box:
As you see, you can see the key statistics of the current sheet and the current workbook. I like the first info – End of sheet the most. Why? Because it is always the first thing I investigate when someone called me asking “Why is my file size so big when I have only a few data points?”. 🤔
Before the “Workbook Statistics”, I need to ask the user to press Ctrl+End which I found challenging sometime (coz many people don’t know what Ctrl+End does, and they would press Ctrl+N instead) 😅.
Tip: The "Workbook Statistics" can only be found under "Review Tab". Currently available in Excel for Microsoft 365, Excel for Microsoft 365 for Mac, Excel for the web, Excel 2021
What? You are using Excel 365 but couldn’t find “Workbook Statistics” on the status bar? No worries! Right click anywhere on Status Bar and you can customize what info to be displayed on it.
This is a small feature, but I like it. What do you think? Do you think it is helpful? Please leave your comment below!
