Don’t over complicate things

Don’t over complicate things

A client reached out to me wanting to discuss a formula to feed information from one worksheet to another.  It should be “easy” (for me) they said, but they had struggled for two years to find an answer before reaching out.

Once I understood what they needed, they really didn’t need a complicated formula, in fact they just needed to combine some copying and pasting techniques to cross check data, something most users of Excel could do if they knew the process.

Sometimes we make things harder than they need to be.

Next time you think a complicated formula is the answer, take a few moments to check in and see if their might be an easier way that minimises the risk of errors down the track.
