Thanks to budget cuts the class sizes have increased a lot, which makes the class roster on my excel sheet pretty long. After a couple of hours of looking through students different styles of hand writing, my eyes get a little fuzzy and it makes searching for students names on the spreadsheet difficult. For those who use excel, do you use any kind of special functions to input grades. I'm really looking for a way that I can just type in part of the students last name and get an auto complete of his/her entire name. Then from there I can just set that equal to the numerical grade value, which will then be auto assigned to the desired column and row of where the students name is on the list.
