Work with several Excel files everyday? – Save them as a workspace [Quick tip]
If you work with multiple Excel workbooks everyday, then here is a handy tip.
- Open all the files you frequently use together.
- Go to View ribbon and click on Save Workspace
- Give a name to your workspace
- Now, whenever you need to open all these files together, just double click on workspace file in your explorer.
- You are done!
Workspace saves not just file collection, but also window layouts. That means, if you like to arrange your Excel windows in a specific fashion, you can save this arrangement too.
Do you use workspace feature?
I find workspace feature to be very useful when I need to work with multiple files, especially in cases like file comparison and consolidation. I can save the file layout as a workspace and re-open it whenever I want to resume the work.
