##### Recently Added / Updated Articles & Lessons
###### Ready Reference 3.0: VBA Operators & Operator Precedence

This article describes the operators available in VBA, their order of precedence in calculation and the types of data returned by each operator in an expression.

###### Ready Reference 3.0: Keyboard Shortcuts

Following is our standard listing of keyboard shortcut key combinations that excludes any discontinued shortcust and some of the more obscure shortcut alternatives.  That still leave more than 150 entries!

###### Ready Reference 3.0: Volatile Expressions

A volatile expression is one that must be recalculated each and every time there is a recalculation event within a workbook. A recalculation event will occur any time someone updates a cell; presses a recalculation shortcut; refreshes a table or query; or executes a macro that triggers recalculation.  The needless use of volatile expressions is one of the things that can make a workbook cumbersome and slow.

###### Ready Reference 3.0: Functions Whose Arguments Span Sheets

In a number of our teaching modules, we demonstrate a technique for consolidating totals by using a SUM function to total corresponding cells through a range of worksheets.  That technique allows us to build very powerful solutions that are flexible and robust and easy to manage and maintain.  The SUM function is not the only function that can be used in this way.

###### Ready Reference 3.0: Keyboard Shortcuts - Comprehensive

Following is our most comprehensive listing of all the keyboard shortcut key combinations for all versions of Excel.  It includes some alternate combinations that provide legacy support from old versions of Excel, or the support for the old XT Keyboards that lacked F11 and F12 keys. It also includes some now discontinued shortcuts for features removed from more recent versions of Excel.  A reduced set of shortcuts which does not include unnecessary duplicates or discontinued keys can be found here.

###### Ready Reference 3.0: Excel Operators & Operator Precedence

This Ready Reference article lists and describes the operators used in Excel worksheet expressions, their order of precedence in calculation and the types of data returned by each operator in an expression.
