I’m feeling quite brilliant at the moment. I figured out, with the help of a book and the built-in help, how to combine 12 spreadsheets into one, automate the date function so that entering it in one cell fixes all 12 spreadsheets, and created a macro to print just those 12 spreadsheets (there’s another 2 in the file) by clicking on a certain cell.

It makes one small little task I have much easier. Not that it was hard in the first place, but now it’s even easier. 30 seconds, that’s what it should take me now. Yay!

Of course, once upon a time I knew how to do that and so much more in Excel. Back in high school when I worked for the City (Utility Billing), one of my co-workers and I created a spectacularly complicated macro that did amazing things. I have no idea how I’d go about that now. I think Excel has changed a bit since 1994.

I’m still very proud of myself.

If you’re having a bad day, do yourself a favor: take a walk outside, preferably to the closest Starbucks to get some iced drink of your choosing, pause a moment in the sun, and only when calm, walk back SLOWLY to your office. If that doesn’t get you smiling, you really should just take the rest of the day off. Call it a mental health day.
