If you use Excel, you've probably noticed that it will automatically provide the average and total at the bottom on the status bar when you select a group of cells. What you may not have realised is that you can customise the calculations which appear in that area.
Blogger and tech expert Helen Bradley reminds us that if you right-click the status bar, you can choose to display the minimum, maximum or numerical count from a series of cells. For me the Sum remains the most useful option, but it's good to know you can add others (or remove all of them if you want a less cluttered screen).
