You are looking for a simply way to make your Excel table look professional? Hardly known but easy to use: Buttons, for example, Check Boxes or Spin Buttons can change values. Before you start using buttons, you have to display the Developer tools. Right-click on any ribbon and click “Customize the Ribbon”. Make sure the box for Developer is ticked on the right hand side.
