MrExcel At The ModelOff Championships – “F2 Esc to Toggle Formulas”: Podcast #1613

December 7, 2012 at 3:32 pm

Bill ‘MrExcel’ Jelen: [Almost] Live From New York City to judge the ModelOff Worldwide Excel Championship!

As Bill started recording the ModelOff Finalists for this week’s podcast series, he’d noticed something rather unusual: one Finalist would constantly hit F2 and Escape in order to Toggle the Formula and Value in the Cell…
Why? Because it takes too long to move your line of sight up to the Formula Bar and back. When Bill asked about this, it led to a new discussion about the danger of the F1 key and how to resolve that issue. Follow along with Bill in Episode #1613 to gain a better understanding, as an Excel User, of the dangers involving the F1 Key, Scroll Lock, Cap Lock and More.

ModelOff is a worldwide competition to find the best Excel modellers with a $25,000 cash prize. For information on next year’s competition, visit
