There are quite a few ways to skin a cat so to speak in most Microsoft
programs.
What Russell describes also works just fine, if you don't highlight the
column or row and use the application menu and select "Insert..." you
get
the same dialogue as you get with control + NumPad Plus which is you get
a
little menu and you can select to Insert an entire column or entire
row.
Control + Shift + = also gets you that same menu
You can also use the ribbon shortcut Alt + H followed by I and C for
column

or R for row.
Just Alt + H followed by I gets you to the insert menu where you can
also
insert a sheet (S).
Alt + H followed by D gets you to the equivalent delete menu.

Hi George,

If you wish to insert a new column, place your cursor in the column to
the
right of where you wish to insert the new column. Select the column you
are

in by pressing CTRL + spacebar. Jaws will say "Selected entire column".
Now

press the applications key and arrow down to "Insert" and press
enter. A new

blank column will be inserted to the left of the column you were in.

If you wish to insert a new blank row, place the cursor in the row
below
where you wish the new row to be inserted. Select the entire row
by pressing

Shift + spacebar. Jaws will say "Selected entire row". Now press the
applications key and arrow down to "Insert" and press enter. A
new blank row

will be inserted above the row you were in.

If you wish to edit a formula, or see what the formula is, move to the
cell

with the formula and press F2. This will place you in edit mode and you
can

read the formula and make any changes you want.

Hope this helps.

Russell

Subject: Inserting Rows in an existing Excel Sheet

Hola!

I am using the latest versions of Win10 and Office (not 365) on my
DeskTop
and I have a couple of questions, if I may:

1. How can I Insert a new vertical Column between the existing
horizontal
Rows,

2. How can I Copy and then Edit the existing Formulas?

I knew how to accomplish these actions within the old Excel program,
but
cannot figure it out with the Ribbons. I know how to navigate the
Ribbons
to some degree, but can't identify the Insert New Column and Edit
Formulas
items.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Sieghard,

Yes, if you go to Save As and save the workbook with a new name, the defined cell names are saved to the new workbook.

I wonder if you go to "Name Manager", under the Formula tab, press CTRL+ right arrow and you should land on "Name Manager", and from there delete any names you have defined, and then define all your cell names again? I wonder if there are names defined already that might be causing things not to work as they ought to?

What you want can be done easily manually by first creating copies of
your first sheet 31 times, one sheet for each day of the month.
Then, place your cursor in the cell of the first sheet where you want
to define the name, press the applications key, up arrow to “Define
name…â€&#65533; and press enter. Type “Titleâ€&#65533;&#65533; if you
wish both column and row headings to be read by Jaws and press enter.
Now, move to sheet two and do the same, except this time type

sheets, each time increasing the number after “Titleâ€&#65533;. Note
that there is no space between “Titleâ€&#65533; and the number.

Not sure if this helps or if you wanted a more automatic method, but I

Pardon my error, that last technique is the "when I only want it during
this session" method
with JAWS. This is how to set them in the
spreadsheet itself such that JAWS will recognize their existence and
announce them whenever you open a specific spreadsheet:

Assigning a Title Row (Column Titles) and/or Title Column (Row Titles)
in Excel

You can assign column and row titles in Excel.
These are nice because they always work with Excel and are saved to the
workbook. There's no risk of losing a setting in your screen reader.

To add column and row title names:
* Focus on the first cell in the row or column or at the first
cell where the title row and title column intersect
* Open the Name dialog:


i. Open the Formula ribbon (ALT-M)


ii. Activate the “Define Nameâ€&#65533; command (M)


iii. Within the drop-down list, activate “Define Nameâ€&#65533;


iv. The “New Nameâ€&#65533; dialog opens



Focus is placed in the name field. Within the name field, you can name
the focused cell or selected range of cells. In this case, we’re
naming the column or row title:
* Name the cell using the following rules

i. Start the range name with the label
that tells Excel you’re creating a title range
* Title – This tells Excel the column and row that intersect at
the active cell are a title row and column
* ColumnTitle – This tells Excel the focused column contains the
titles for the rows within the range
* RowTitle – this tells Excel the focused row contains titles for
thee columns in the range

ii. Add a name for the range
* Title_WidgetSales
* ColumnTitle_WidgetSales
* RowTitle_WidgetSales

iii.
Optional - Add the last cell in the range preceded by two periods
* Use this when you have multiple regions in a worksheet
* Title_WidgetSales..J25
* ColumTitle_WidgetSales..h32
* RowTitle_WidgetSales..r12
* Remember the cell address referenced is the last cell in the
range for which you are creating titles

The next field in the dialog sets the scope for the name. this is a
combo box. Use UP and DOWN ARROW to choose from between:
* Workbook - the title Is unique and can’t be used elsewhere in
a workbook
* A Specific Worksheet - the name can be used elsewhere in a
workbook

You can add a comment for the named cell or region, this is strictly
for your personal reference and doesn’t affect the echo of the column
or row title name

The last field references the cell name or range of selected cells
you’re naming. You can leave this field alone.

Activate the OK button to save the name and close the dialog.

Save the workbook and the titles are permanently saved and will work on
any computer.

If you have titles set to echo in JAWS, the titles will echo and you
won’t lose the settings.

Hi Sieghard,

Yes, if you go to Save As and save the workbook with a new name, the defined cell names are saved to the new workbook.

I wonder if you go to "Name Manager", under the Formula tab, press CTRL+ right arrow and you should land on "Name Manager", and from there delete any names you have defined, and then define all your cell names again? I wonder if there are names defined already that might be causing things not to work as they ought to?

Cheers,

Russell

I find the easiest shortcut for inserting new rows and columns is Control + NumPad Plus, it will ask you if you want to insert a new row or a new column, Insert + NumPad Minus allows you to delete a column or row.
As for copying, all you have to do is press Control + C on a cell containing a formula.

First I have to get it to work in the first place. For some reason I can’t get automatic readings of row and column headings to work using this method at all.

I already have a template of this workbook set up and I usually just open it each time a new month starts and then use F12 to save it but giving it the name of the month.

For example, my template is Sales Summary and I then save it, for example, as Sales Summary June 2019.

I wouldn’t mind setting up the row and column title reading on each sheet separately if I could just get it to work.

The last field references the cell name or range of selected cells you’re naming. You can leave this field alone.

Save the workbook and the titles are permanently saved and will work on any computer.

If you have titles set to echo in JAWS, the titles will echo and you won’t lose the settings.

Hi Sieghard,

 

I’m not able to set this up by defining a name on a worksheet and then copying that sheet multiple times. Even if I set the scope to the worksheet rather than the workbook, Jaws doesn’t read column or row headings on the next sheets.

 

What you want can be done easily manually by first creating copies of your first sheet 31 times, one sheet for each day of the month. Then, place your cursor in the cell of the first sheet where you want to define the name, press the applications key, up arrow to “Define name…” and press enter. Type “Title” if you wish both column and row headings to be read by Jaws and press enter. Now, move to sheet two and do the same, except this time type “Title2” as the name. Continue doing this on subsequent sheets, each time increasing the number after “Title”. Note that there is no space between “Title” and the number.

 

Not sure if this helps or if you wanted a more automatic method, but I can’t seem to do it any other way. I even tried grouping the sheets and then defining a name, but this doesn’t work.

 

Cheers,

 

Russell

Hi Brian,

 

I attached a little sample spreadsheet I made. I thought I followed your steps to set it up so Jaws will read the column and row titles, but I can’t get it to work, what am I doing wrong?

Pardon my error, that last technique is the "when I only want it during this session" method with JAWS.   This is how to set them in the spreadsheet itself such that JAWS will recognize their existence and announce them whenever you open a specific spreadsheet:

Assigning a Title Row (Column Titles) and/or Title Column (Row Titles) in Excel

You can assign column and row titles in Excel. These are nice because they always work with Excel and are saved to the workbook. There's no risk of losing a setting in your screen reader.

To add column and row title names:

    1. Focus on the first cell in the row or column or at the first cell where the title row and title column intersect
    2. Open the Name dialog:

                                                               i.      Open the Formula ribbon (ALT-M)

                                                             ii.      Activate the “Define Name” command (M)

                                                           iii.      Within the drop-down list, activate “Define Name”

                                                           iv.      The “New Name” dialog opens

 

Focus is placed in the name field. Within the name field, you can name the focused cell or selected range of cells. In this case, we’re naming the column or row title:

    1. Name the cell using the following rules

                           i.  Start the range name with the label that tells Excel you’re creating a title range

        1. Title – This tells Excel the column and row that intersect at the active cell are a title row and column
        2. ColumnTitle – This tells Excel the focused column contains the titles for the rows within the range
        3. RowTitle – this tells Excel the focused row contains titles for the columns in the range

                            ii.      Add a name for the range

        1. Title_WidgetSales
        2. ColumnTitle_WidgetSales
        3. RowTitle_WidgetSales

                              iii.      Optional - Add the last cell in the range preceded by two periods

        1. Use this when you have multiple regions in a worksheet
        2. Title_WidgetSales..J25
        3. ColumTitle_WidgetSales..h32
        4. RowTitle_WidgetSales..r12
        5. Remember the cell address referenced is the last cell in the range for which you are creating titles

The next field in the dialog sets the scope for the name. this is a combo box. Use UP and DOWN ARROW to choose from between:

  • Workbook - the title Is unique and can’t be used elsewhere in a workbook
  • A Specific Worksheet - the name can be used elsewhere in a workbook

You can add a comment for the named cell or region, this is strictly for your personal reference and doesn’t affect the echo of the column or row title name

The last field references the cell name or range of selected cells you’re naming. You can leave this field alone.

Activate the OK button to save the name and close the dialog.

Save the workbook and the titles are permanently saved and will work on any computer.

If you have titles set to echo in JAWS, the titles will echo and you won’t lose the settings.

As Rick has indicated, if the page you want to print happens to be the one you currently are looking at in Word (or pretty much any program, it works the same in PDF readers and other programs, too).

Things did change in the Word 2016 print dialog, though.  At one time the "current page," "all pages," and "page range" options were presented as radio buttons, where if you used the page range option you then had to enter something like 2-7 if you wanted pages 2 through 7 of the current document to print.  In Word 2016, there is now a dropdown box, the first one in the settings section, that allows you to pick full document (Print all pages, the default), current page, or specific pages (page range).  You must use the dropdown if you want to choose current page and don't know or don't want to check the current page number, but if you want a page range, immediately under that dropdown is an edit box for pages, where you can enter a single page, e.g., 7, a contiguous page range, e.g. 2-5, or a combination of both, e.g. 3,7-11,14,19-25.  If you enter anything in that box it automatically switches the dropdown to reflect specific pages.

The dropdown box also allows you to print out certain properties associated with your document, rather than document pages.  You can review what those are if you expand the dropdown.

I got it …… After I placed myself on the page I wanted to print, I pressed control p and started tabbing through …… I found it where it said “settings group box print what? Combo box use the arrow keys to make a selection”.  I pressed alt and down arrow to open the combo box where it then gave me choices of all pages, current page, etc.  BTW; I also was able to make my choice by just arrowing down (not pressing alt down arrow to open a combo box.

 

Thanks for the help.

I'm currently using NVDA, but all I do is tab to it.  It announces "Settings Grouping" then that I'm on the combo box (what I called a dropdown, because if you can't enter text into it it's really not a combo box), and I can either hit spacebar or enter to make it open to select what I want.  Then I navigate back to the Print button and hit it (or, hit ALT+F,P,P from wherever you happen to be to activate it without having to navigate back).

I also have the screen reader announcing the keyboard shortcut sequence to achieve the same thing without having to navigate to that dropdown, but you'd have to get there once to hear it.   ALT+F,P,A shoots you straight to the dropdown, which is expanded when you land on it, and you can select current page.   ALT+F,P,S takes you straight to the select page range edit box, where you can enter a page number, series of numbers, series of ranges, or any combination thereof.

Office 365 is built principally upon Office 2016 as its baseline, with a bit of 2019 thrown in.  There should be no significant differences in the File Tab between the three, which is where all this stuff is controlled.

What Chrome Extensions do you have installed?   It sounds like some sort of privacy related extension is deleting all your cookies upon exiting Chrome, and Chrome does not support this by default.   Either that, or you're firing up Chrome in incognito mode (which takes some very intentional doing) in which case nothing is preserved when the incognito session is closed.
