How to Group Worksheets in Microsoft Excel 2013

When sheets are grouped together, whatever you do on one sheet will “burn through” to all of the other sheets in the group.    It’s useful when you are going to have several sheets in a workbook that do virtually the same thing.   For instance, you might be creating a budget over several months, and each month has its own sheet.   With sheets grouped you can:-

  • Apply formatting to all of the sheets in the group at once
  • Create formula on all of the sheets in the group at once
