The word undo was never very widely used until we started using computers; now it's a verb that we all wish we could apply to more things in life. In Excel, you can choose Edit, Undo or click the Undo button to recover from editing mistakes without having to reenter data or patch information back in place.

The Undo button on the Standard toolbar includes a drop-down list of up to the last 16 actions you performed. You can then select and simultaneously undo any number of these actions at once.
