Core modelling skill 9: Adding a new work sheet

We always keep a template sheet with the column structure and timeline set up in the model. Whenever we need a new sheet, we will copy this template.

The keyboard sequence to copy a sheet is somewhat laborious. This is one of the few occasions when the mouse is more efficient.

To copy a sheet

  • Hold down the Control key
  • Left mouse click and hold on the Tmp sheet. Your pointer will change to a +sheet symbol.
  • Move that symbol to where you want the new sheet to be placed among your existing sheets. You can always move it later.
  • When you have the position you want, release the left mouse click.

To rename the sheet

Double click on the sheet name and type the new name.
