Going through the process of adding a new worksheet to your workbook can sometimes be a drag. The number of menu choices you need to make can really slow you down. If you are on a roll and you don't want to take the time to wade through the menus, you can use a keyboard shortcut to quickly add a new worksheet. If you need to add a new worksheet before the current worksheet, you can do so by pressing Shift+F11.

ExcelTips is your source for cost-effective Microsoft Excel training. This tip (2142) applies to Microsoft Excel 97, 2000, 2002, and 2003. You can find a version of this tip for the ribbon interface of Excel (Excel 2007 and later) here: Quickly Inserting a New Worksheet.
