Halloween and Dressing up your Charts

Tomorrow is Halloween here in America; a time for candy and costumes.

Unfortunately, Halloween falls on a work day. I hate that.

There is always peer pressure to participate in ‘Halloween Costume Day’. What is Halloween costume day? It’s a day where, in the name of fun, all employees are encouraged to dress up in a costume for the day. This means the people you normally hate are now working around you dressed as robots and witches.

.

Well if you’re feeling pressure to dress up for Halloween, here are three simple costume ideas I pulled off the web.

All of these are just the ticket for the lazy passive-aggressive employee in your life.

Identity Thief

Get some “Hello My Name Is” stickers and write a bunch of names on them. Then just stick them to your shirt to become an Identity Thief.

.

Error 404 Message

This idea has been around for some time. If you’re completely lazy, you can take a white T-shirt and become an Error 404 message.

.

50 Shades of Grey

If you want to be a bit more provocative, get some color samples from your local hardware store and create a 50 Shades of Grey costume.

Using Paste Special Chart Formats

Speaking of dressing up, here’s a quick trick that lets you dress up your unformatted charts.

After you’ve expertly formatted a chart, you probably want to apply that same format to other charts.

Instead of doing all that work again, you can use the Paste Special Formats option on your unformatted charts.

.

Step 1: Select your formatted chart and press Ctrl+C on your keyboard

Step 2: Select your unformatted chart, click the Paste dropdown on the Home tab, and then select Paste Special.

.

Step 3: On the Paste Special dialog box, select the Formats option and then click OK.

.

 

If all went well, your unformatted chart will be all dressed up and ready to go.

Repeat these steps for all your charts.

Happy Halloween!
