Flash Fill is a feature baked into Excel 2013 that enables Excel to fill in information based on examples of what a user wants. As explained in a recent Microsoft Research write up, a user could type a correctly formatted example of names or numbers and FlashFill will automatically fill in the rows below the example with the same formatting. (Microsoft Research and the Office 2013 team worked together on the Flash Fill feature.)

Wouldn't Word be the better choice? Also, I think MSFT needs to start investing in many different and possibly profitable ventures. As it stands I don't see the need to keep updating my Office program and Window 7 is solid enough to use for a couple years still. Don't wait for the CF to dry up. thumb.gif
