Overwriting and Deleting Data
When you overwrite a cell, you replace the cell’s contents with new data. Overwriting is handy when you want to correct typing errors or when a cell contains the wrong data. You can also easily erase the contents of a cell by using the Delete key. Erasing a cell is useful when you change your mind about the contents after you enter the data in the cell. You might find that a piece of data you initially typed into a cell is incorrect and needs to be changed.
