I’ve always had trouble distinguishing between columns and rows in Excel. I would often get confused when organizing data, deleting columns/rows, or pasting data. Thanks to a colleague who taught me a simple trick, I now have a clear understanding with just one image. I welcome sharing this with friends who struggle with identifying columns and rows!
In English, “column” means a pillar, and pillars are straight up, so “column” is easy to remember as vertical! Once you identify Column, Row must be the horizontal ones. This is a technique that utilizes refined memory in education, making the brain remember in a more profound way, such as memorizing English words with example sentences, visual images, or storytelling methods. The image above follows the same approach. If you know someone who struggles with identification, share this article with them!
