Tips

1. Understanding Excel Functions

ChatGPT is great at explaining things clearly. Use it to get answers to your Excel queries with the following prompt template:
JavaScript
Copy
Explain how Excel [name of Excel function] works. Go step-by-step.

2. How to Use Excel Functions

Next, we'll talk about how to use different Excel functions. We'll make a simple guide for using any Excel function using this question template:
JavaScript
Copy
How to use Excel [name of the function] to [what you want to do]? Give step-by-step guidance, but skip the basic steps.
For instance, let's learn how to find the average of a group of cells.

3. Creating Excel Commands

Sometimes, you just need to create an Excel command quickly. Luckily, ChatGPT can assist you with that. Use this prompt template to ask for any Excel command:
JavaScript
Copy
Write an Excel command to [describe the task]. Respond with code only.
Just specify the task you want to achieve in Excel, and ChatGPT will provide the necessary command code.

4. Crafting Macros

For those who appreciate automation in Excel, macros are a wonderful tool to explore. ChatGPT is here to assist you in learning how to create and utilize macros effectively.
According to Microsoft, a macro is defined as an action or a series of actions that you can execute repeatedly. Essentially, creating a macro involves recording your mouse clicks and keystrokes, allowing you to automate repetitive tasks.
Here, I present a prompt template to help you with crafting macros:
JavaScript
Copy
Write a VBA Excel macro that [performs certain action]. Respond with the code only.
I attempted to create a basic macro that takes the value from a cell and then opens a corresponding worksheet based on that value.

5. Performing Complex Tasks in Excel

Excel does more than just basic tasks; it can work through tough jobs including analyzing data and creating charts.
ChatGPT is here to help you with these difficult tasks. Clearly describe what you want to do, including every detail.
JavaScript
Copy
Act as a proficient Excel assistant. [Explain the task]
I got guidance on how to do it, along with explanations for each step.

6. Make ChatGPT Your Go-To Excel Assistant

Having a separate prompt for each task in Excel can be too much to handle. Instead, you can use a single prompt to make ChatGPT a handy helper for any Excel job you have.
Here is a universal prompt that makes ChatGPT act like an expert on Excel:
JavaScript
Copy
Act as an Excel expert. Provide step-by-step instructions on how to complete a specific task in Excel. This could include tasks such as creating a pivot table, formatting data, using formulas or functions, creating charts or graphs, or any other Excel-related task. Clearly explain each step, specify any required settings, or options, explain what functions to use, and provide any additional tips or recommendations to ensure accurate and efficient completion of the task.

Help me
with the following task: [describe your task]
What's great about this prompt is that it works for any task in Excel, giving you detailed instructions every time.

7. Turn ChatGPT Into An Excel Sheet

You can actually have GPT function as a textual representation of an Excel sheet, where it executes transformations or computations as instructed by you.
JavaScript
Copy
I want you to act as a text-based excel. you'll only reply to me with the text-based 10 rows excel sheet with row numbers and cell letters as columns (A to L). The first column header should be empty to reference the row number. I will tell you what to write into cells, and you'll reply only with the result of the excel table as text and nothing else. Do not write explanations. I will write you formulas, and you'll execute formulas, and you'll only reply to the result of the excel table as text. First, reply to me with the empty sheet.

In the reminder, you will find places marked with two brackets "[]" or "<>", where you will replace the input information with similar content, and then delete the brackets after your content has been replaced.

The output content example returned from the A.P.I will therefore be shorter and less expressive than when you use live chat with GPT.
