Calculating the Number of Listings Automatically.

You’ve Placed a listing of products with prices from Excel as a Table with each item and its price in a separate Row. There are hundreds of listings in your Table, but how can you figure out the exact number without counting them manually? With the Type tool active move your mouse up toward the top of the Table’s Column until you get a heavy down arrow. Click to select this entire Column. Then take a look in your Info palette (Widow>Info) for a Line count which should equal your number of listings (as long as there are no empty cells). It takes a fraction of a second, but who’s counting?
