Credit Cards- Even thou I am not a great advocate of credit cards, they do (if used correctly) allow a family to establish over time, a good credit history. In addition, in times of calamity, credit cards are a quick avenue of cash! When looking for a budget spreadsheet, look for a home budget that allows for the use and management of a least one credit card. In addition, your home budget should also give you the ability to swap out any projected budgeted transactions, for a credit card transaction. Charts - One of the greatest advancements in computer technology as been the processor speed. Today it possible to chart just about any information; but that is not the same as saying that all charted information is of value to you, the user. When considering a budget spreadsheet or home budget software, ask yourself, "Will the charts provide useful information necessary for me in achieving my short and long term goals in life?" "If I stay on budget, will my bank balance fluctuate either up or down?" "Does my projected budget TRULY reflect by lifestyle?" These are important questions; and the answers will guide you in choosing the best home budget for you and your family. Christmas - At first glance, one might not consider a section that deals with Christmas as being a useful secondary supplemental add-on. Yet, you might feel differently if you have to deal with items bought and then placed on lay-a-way, the correlation of expected income against actual purchases, and the keeping of a list of who gets what. A home budget software or budgeting spreadsheets that offer a section that deals with Christmas, can aid to making that time of year stress free.

This feature allows you to specify the conditions a value needs to meet and reject any values that dont meet your conditions. If you know, for example, the minimum and maximum values of your data, simply instruct Excel to highlight values that fall outside of that range. To take it a step further, create a drop-down list of values in an adjacent workbook, then use those to populate your active one. Youll limit your potential for error by choosing from an already known list of values. No fat finger errors here. Automate the Whole Thing Were biased, but the easiest and best way to prevent errors in Excel is to automate your work. Todays automation software packages (and there are many) work within and between your spreadsheets and other sources of data, like websites, to import, manipulate, copy, paste, and format data however you wish. Some log critical process information, sorts, and transforms data just like you would - through the presentation layer of the application. Unlike you (no offense), good automation software works without errors. If youre a CPA or work for any other firm that uses spreadsheets on a regular basis, consider automation software as an alternative to those every day manual processes.

You can add more data if you would like or even use an already existing spreadsheet. The choice is completely up to you; however the steps to reformat the column widths are all the same as you will soon see. The next step is to highlight the columns that you want to reformat. To reformat the columns we are using in our example, using the month names, you need to click on the column header labeled "A". Now hold down the "shift" key and click the column header labeled "L". In other words you are clicking the first column and the last column. If you chose to use your own spreadsheet, your columns that you use may be different. You could also click on column header "A" and holding down the left mouse button, drag the cursor over top of the final column, in this case "L", and let go of the mouse button. Either way is fine.

For example, designing a calculator to each structural element included in a footer foundation - Normally you would estimate your concrete, reinforcing bar, excavation, back-fill, and form work separately. When using a specialized concrete footing contractor for an example, the contractor will arrive at the clients project site at the appointment time, walk the site where the proposed project will be, and look over the construction drawings. A well-designed spreadsheet calculator will deliver a nice bill of materials when you input depth, thickness, width, length of footer, and type of reinforcing material. The calculator delivers a total material cost, labor cost, plus the detailed bill of materials including 10 to 20% standard overage included in each bid. Spreadsheet calculators eliminate the drive back to the office to use a big standalone computer holding the expensive software your company paid thousands of dollars to purchase and maintain. Many benefits for using a spreadsheet bid calculator system can save companies time/money, and many have realized the benefits for many years and still deliver results today.

Whats more, the damage done can also affect public perception and trust in your brand, leading to less tangible but just as dangerous losses. Is it possible to move away from spreadsheets? For smaller businesses, the number of accounts needing to be reconciled is relatively small, so it makes sense for smaller businesses to continue using a combination of spreadsheets and QuickBooks. In turn, the team that manages the financial close process will also be relatively small, perhaps just one or two finance staff, so there is also less room for data handling errors. However, as the number of accounts to reconcile grows and the team managing your monthly close process is expanded, errors can easily worm their way in to the reconciliation process. Once a business has grown, it makes sense to move away from Excel spreadsheets and QuickBooks, particularly for tasks like reconciling. At its capacity, the finance department of a large organisation can generate up to five hundred spreadsheets a month - so its easy to see how errors and duplications can creep in.

Then youve come to the right place. The LEFT or RIGHT function returns the leftmost or rightmost characters from a text value. Example: =LEFT(A2,3) If value in cell A2 were 184770 the formula would display the number 4. =Right(B3,2) If value in cell B3 were 16579 the formula would display the number 7. LEN (length) returns the number of characters in a text string. Example: =LEN(A2) If the value in cell A2 is 16498 then the formula will display 5. Combine the two in a single formula example. Say you have a single digit which indicates length in.125 increments. Double digits indicates length in whole inches AND.125 increments. =IF(LEN(D2)=2,LEFT(D2,1)+(RIGHT(D2,1)*0.125),RIGHT(D2,1)*0.125) If the length of the value of cell D2 (the length number) equals 2 (which means it is double digit), then add the left digit plus the right digit multiplied by 0.125, otherwise take the single digit and multiply by 0.125.

When developing a spread sheet solution in Excel, you make decisions and change features and formulas which at the time make perfect sense and have a logical flow. Once you come back to amend, or enhance or troubleshoot your spread sheet, what made sense at the time of development, may not be so obvious at a later date. So here are my top 5 things to avoid when developing a spreadsheet solution to enable you to troubleshoot any issues and make your spread sheet as efficient as possible. 1. Merged Cells. They may look good, but they can play havoc on the functionality of you spreadsheet including losing the ability to sort data correctly or run VBA as it does not handle merged cells very well. You also lose the functionality of a normal data table in Excel; that is the great functions such as Pivot Tables, SUMIF, COUNTIF etc the list goes on!. If you want to use Auto Fill- no chance with merged cells and do not expect to be able to copy and paste either.
