This can prove useful should you want to have spreadsheets available to add extra information, if it is required during your presentation. Once you have created charts in MS Excel you may like any changes to them to be linked to PowerPoint slides. This is possible using the Microsoft Office Excel Chart Object, which allows you to create links to diagrams that have been updated, ensuring your presentation contains the most recent adaptations to spreadsheet data. Another application that you can paste your MS Excel data into is MS Word. This can be beneficial to those who need to create informative documents that feature spreadsheets.
Spreadsheet bid calculators are evolving through years of trial and error by individuals designing their own spreadsheets due to cost and affordability, which is a viable option for them if they have time to design these spreadsheets. Large contracting firms compile their constructions bids using expensive standalone programs, because they have proven platforms with a record of accuracy. Spreadsheet calculators deliver detailed bids to the user with excellent results and without the high operating cost of expensive programs. Spreadsheet calculators when placed on a laptop give contractors flexibility to estimate small projects and/or large projects on construction projects. Contractors waste valuable time and money returning to the office with the clients project information just to calculate the bid, then return to deliver the clients bid. Spreadsheet calculators calculate the required 10% overage on materials, including the contractors pricing structure for labor/material/equipment designed in the calculator.
