The layout of the spreadsheet should not only be easy to understand, but also be able to present all the necessary information in a glance. It should contain just the right number of graphics and details to avoid confusion for its user. Another important feature of a household budget spreadsheet program is the flexibility to allow the user to enter all elements of the family budget. It must allow some space for the income sources, expenses, and utilities. That way, you can plan your familys finances more efficiently. You can find several home budget spreadsheets with standard add-ons such as calendar, calculator, savings planner, and credit card manager. The spreadsheet software you will use depends on the add-ons that you think are suitable to your budgeting needs. A spreadsheet software for your household budget can be a valuable tool to avoid problems regarding your familys finances. Take advantage of this tool to make budgeting a lot easier for you.

As a financial accounting professional, it is almost certain you will have been using Microsoft Excel spreadsheets during the month end close process. It is also extremely likely you will have experienced problems with them too! Over the last thirty-odd years, spreadsheets have become a mainstay in finance departments, used for all sorts of tasks, from reconciliation to reporting and everything in between. Despite their popularity with finance staff, they still pose a massive margin for error. The expected error rate when reconciling with spreadsheets is 0.8-1.8% and though this may seem small, for a company with a $1m turnover this represents a risk of $80,000-$180,000.

In an analysis of multiple studies dating back to 2008, Marketwatch reported last year that almost 90% of Microsoft Excel Spreadsheets contain errors.

With about 1 Billion users of Microsoft Office users in the world, the absolute number of errors that potentially exist range in the hundreds of millions. We have some thoughts on how to prevent errors in Excel spreadsheets. Here are three of them: Most Errors are Caused by Bad Calculations: Check Your Formulas Methods of testing your formulas range from the simple to the absurdly complex.

A volatile function is one that re-calculates every time a work sheet changes. These include NOW(), TODAY(), OFFSET functions. If you use multiple or large amounts of these in a work book it will eventually start to slow it down. 5. Avoid Unnecessary Complex Formulas. One thing I have learned by developing spread sheets solutions for users is they (eventually) want to see all of the workings out of a formula. For example a typical sales formula of =(Price*SalesQuantity)-(Price*SalesQuantity)*Discount+(Price*SalesQuantity)*Tax Users will want to know the Sales Value Totals, the Discounted Totals and the Sales Tax Value displayed is separate columns. This is where we can break down the formula components into smaller formulas in their own columns or what we call helper columns. If you can increase transparency of calculations it will make the logic of the spreadsheet easier for users to follow resulting in less queries.

When it comes to using Microsofts Excel Spreadsheet program there is no question that there are a variety of ways to accomplish many tasks. One of the things I like about Excel is the ability to format multiple columns at the same time giving them the same width. If you are unfamiliar with how this is done, read on and take a look at the steps I perform to achieve this task. You will see that it is very easy to do. The first thing you want to do, obviously, is open up Excel. Once Excel is displayed on your screen, go ahead and type in cell "A1" the month name "January". In the cell "B1" type in the month name, "February", in "C1" type in "March" and so on until you type in all twelve months each in their own cell on the spreadsheet.

If you share Excel spreadsheets with other people, you may want the option to leave comments to explain why you have done something, or to ask questions of the other users in regard to the data. Rather than picking up the phone, or sending a lengthy email you can put comments onto the spreadsheet. Comments are a lot like sticky notes that can be viewed, or removed. You may know the basics of adding comments, but I have included a few lesser known tricks. These skills can be used in any version of Excel although the 2013 and 2007 version steps may be a little different from the ones I am describing for Excel 2010. The Basics The basic commands for comments can be found using your Right-click menu or the Comments group on the Review ribbon. When you choose New Comment, a box will appear that includes the user name of your computer (you can change this in the General tab of the Excel Options) and a cursor that indicates it is waiting for you to start typing. When you navigate away from the cell the comment box will disappear and be replaced by a red triangle in the top right corner. Any time you hover over a cell with a red triangle, the comment will be displayed.

Why, well because they are hidden!. They can confuse users who are trying to follow the logic of a spreadsheet, users cant see them but Excel will still use those cells in calculations which can then appear to users to cause erroneous data. They can also cause issues with importing new data into your work book and issues with and VBA code. 3. Avoid Blank Cells, Rows and Columns. You may not always have a value for every single cell in your work book, but leaving cells completely blank has a massive impact on some functions in Excel. For example -AUTOSUM or using filtering with blank cells will affect Excels calculations. If you have blanks, always consider using zeros or an appropriate descriptive value such as NA.
