Custom Views in Excel

http://chandoo.org/wp/2008/12/17/custom-views-excel/

The Problem:

  • You have created a specific view of your data in Excel (say by filtering, zooming out, changing column width, hiding specific rows, customizing window settings, print settings etc.). This is your reference point say view ABC.
  • Then, you change some of it (say remove certain filters, change column width etc.), and then some more.
  • ABC view is so helpful as a reference that you need to revisit that view over and over again after changing it in different ways (say applying different filters each time)

Essentially, View Tab,  custom view button.
