Nothing lowers the credibility of your work than a spelling mistake. Spell Check in Excel is often ignored given that #Excel users often work with numbers as compared with text. But it is still one of the important checks one should have in place.
As compared to MS Word or PowerPoint, where you can visually see a red underline below the word that has been misspelt, nothing of that sort happen in Excel. Imagine a disastrous spelling error glaring out of your worksheet when you sent it to your client.
No matter how much hard work you put into data crunching and analysis, all your credibility goes down the drain.
Well – NOT anymore.
