Gradebook: Adding and Deleting Rows or Columns

When working with Excel, you may find that you no longer need a column or row. This document discusses adding and deleting rows and columns in your Excel gradebook. When deleting a row or column, however, be aware that the data contained in the cells will also be deleted. For more information, refer to Working with Rows and Columns: Adding and Removing Rows and Columns.

Adding/Deleting Rows

Adding or deleting a row is helpful if a student adds or drops your class after you have created the gradebook. You will likely want to add or delete rows in your gradebook file to reflect the change in course registration.

WARNING: When you delete a row, everything in the row will be deleted. If desired, you may delete information from a specific cell(s) instead.

Adding/Deleting Columns

Adding or deleting columns can help keep your gradebook organized. For example, if you decide to add a quiz after you design your initial gradebook, you can add a column to contain the quiz scores. Or, you can delete a column if you decide you do not need a piece of student information.

WARNING: When you delete a column, everything in the column will be deleted. If desired, you may delete information from a specific cell(s) instead.
