Keyboard Shortcuts for Word and Excel

I have been pounding out some data sorts in Excel for the PMPA’s Administrative and Clerical Salary Survey, about 9 different sorts of a 38, 000 cell data table…

My hands hurt- must learn new keyboard shortcuts!

And then I have to write the forward material.

So when I spoke with my Computer Science EE graduate daughter via Skype  the other day, I asked her if she could give me a cheat sheet of some of those crazy keyboard shortcut commands that I know she uses. I currently use ctrl-c to copy, ctrl-v to paste, ctrl-m to  move  margin, ctrl-x to cut- I use a few.

So today she sent me the link to Lifehacker blog which I get in my email but look at at home.

Voila- A big honkin’ printable pdf list of keyboard shortcuts for Word and one for Excel too. 

Thanks Lifehacker and Thanks Help Desk Geek.

Oh yeah- Thanks Emma!
