ARCHIVED: WACKY Wednesday - Excel, Google Drive, and Google Sheets, Oh, My!


DearREADERS,
We advertised this WACKY Wednesday by saying we'd "share tricks of the trade." As such we dove quickly into demos and discussions about:


  • what to do if you don't have MS Excel and someone sends you a file to review.
  • general orientation to Google Drive
  • uploading the file to Google Drive
  • copy & paste a citation form to your document using Snagit
  • running all eligible ancestors through one database at a time, so it's the same citation, just change the fill-in-the-blank parts
  • The SCARY part - Myrt wanted to import an entire Google Sheet, not just one tab into an existing Google Sheet (YAY! It works!)
  • Dropbox
If you cannot view the embedded video on your device, use this link:
SD is replaced by HD quality with CC usually within the hour after uploading.
