Inserting Cells

There might be times when you need to insert new cells into the middle of your dataset. For example, if you have a table that shows data by region, you might need to insert blank cells to accommodate a new region. To avoid retyping all the data again or copying and pasting, you can insert cells and shift the current cells to their correct locations.
