Tips for migrating data with Excel
Knowing new tricks in Excel can make life a little more enjoyable. Although many people are familiar with the basic operations of this tool, here are some tips so that you can migrate data with Excel and none of your voters are left out:
- Always organize and update the data. Make sure you determine the type of data you have, so it is easier to organize it properly in rows or columns.
- Correct the errors you find. For this you can activate or deactivate error checking rules. Always check if the data is correct in order to avoid errors in calculations or data processing.
- Remember to update the voting proxies or weights of your voters. This way, the results will be automatically calculated taking this information into account.
