Slo-mo work, adjusting Excel cell formats. Helps if the format was revealed
in a toolbar or status bar, WITHOUT having to click on menus, submenus. Even
more helpful: show cell format and range of format in status bar or toolbar.
Could be an icon to select for view, but being visible, like page number
and number of pages, in the status bar is even better.
Now, if we could change the range of the format - as in: you try a format -
find it works in that cell - extend the range for the format in the
disclosure in the status bar, or from the icon, or drop down in the toolbar,
or right-click menu, and NOT have to select the range with your mouse scroll.
If it is part of the MS intuitive macro engine, the program could suggest
the range to the end of the page, for starters.
Or: manually type, or select from a suggestion list, the range in the
disclosure window, which would be an interactive window with drop-down.
And: include date formats that DON'T turn the date into an algorithm
