A model to be forgotten

Last night, I got another reminder.

Was helping H put together an Excel spreadsheet model. He has a pretty good idea of what he wanted, but couldn't figure out how to add formulas. Odd, since he was the Excel whiz for many years, creating inventory & cash flow models for our businesses, creating monthly budgeting worksheets and so forth.

Last night, I had to show him how to select a cell, copy it, and then paste it no less than 4 times over the course of 10 minutes. He kept forgetting which cells were which and where to paste the copied ones.

This is scary.
