Keep to universal colours if you can, I find that black, white and grey colours work best, they look neat and professional but give the spreadsheet added value. 4. Adhere to default formatting of cells, that is text is aligned to the left and numbers to the right- this is what Excel expects. This can greatly speed up troubleshooting if you having issued with a formulas or referencing cells, as at a glance you can tell if the cells should be formatted and text or numeric. 5. Format cells as text only if you really have to, as all of the data you enter into a text formatted cell becomes text, even if you meant it to be numeric, this is one thing you do not want- any formula cells to be formatted as text.

If your boss depends on Excel spreadsheets as primary sources of management information, here are some tips to consider. You may be receiving some of the spreadsheets your boss gets. You may even be in charge of preparing a few of those spreadsheets that your boss depends on for management information. If both you and he are getting information from spreadsheets submitted by other departments or staff, then he depends on them for that information. But what if you were in charge of consolidating the information from all those spreadsheets? What if you assembled all that information into an Excel dashboard that you send to your boss every day? Why, then your boss would read YOUR work first and foremost. He would rely on your dashboard as THE most important spreadsheet he receives.

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

Spreadsheet entry jobs fall under the data entry category, and they are most sought after jobs for people who want to keep themselves busy while they wait for a preferred job. The reason these jobs are popular is because they require basic computer skills; and if you need to do the job from home, all you need is a computer, Internet connection and a good typing speed. A spreadsheet entry job requires the worker to enter data into a spreadsheet, which is easier than using database software. Often times, the employer requires you to research information, or type data from other documents and input the data into a spreadsheet as specified by the employer. Companies will hire you when they have a lot of information that they need inputted into spreadsheets, and sorted in a particular manner. Many times, this includes information typed on paper and scanned into JPEG, or using online forms. When companies have a lot of data to input into spreadsheets or a database, they will outsource the job, but often times this is a short-lived job. However, you may find recruitment and staffing who will hire you for the long-term; in many cases, when your contract ends, the staffing agency will find you another job quickly.

The first wall is what I call "spreadsheet suffocation." It is that stage of information sharing pain that causes people to start cussing. Where did you save the Johnson calculations? Who has the orders spreadsheet locked? Where did my new inventory list go? Did someone write over it? There was 2 days work in that spreadsheet! When a team of people reaches this point - whether they are a small company or a department within a larger enterprise - they need a central collaboration solution built. They may be able to buy it or they may have to build one, depending on their specific needs... but the pain of trying to collaborate is now so high that they are suffocating - a significant growth bottleneck has set in.

However, companies can nowadays achieve these goals with less effort and in a cheaper way by using properly designed spreadsheets. The right spreadsheet solutions allow companies of all shapes and sizes to achieve and maintain a prominent position on the market, optimizing and accelerating a wide range of specific business processes and tasks. Serving for a multitude of purposes and being renowned for their efficiency and reliability, spreadsheet solutions have a major contribution to business management and development.

The system that supported five people is starting to break down under the strain of 30 people. A new type of thinking must be applied to streamline the companys operations and automate them - again. This time, the system will be larger, will take longer to design (or purchase), and cause more of a disruption in company operations when it is implemented. What happens internally when a system no longer meets the needs of the busy employees? They start creating workarounds to get their job done... and often their solutions involve spreadsheets. And so, the spreadsheet culture is reborn and the cycle begins again. The need for new and/or different systems to support a companys growth is not avoidable. Just plan to address them before the pain at each juncture is so great that your people start leaving for a company that has better, more efficient systems in place. When you do start this planning phase, be sure to use experts that are not tied to a particular solution. You know the old saying... When all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

In order to ensure that you are provided with high-quality spreadsheet solutions and that they are 100 percent compatible with the profile and size of your business, you need to possess performing, state-of-the-art spreadsheet programs. However, it is important to note that the entire process of designing and creating your own spreadsheet solutions by using spreadsheet-generating programs is time consuming and requires a good level of expertise. Without the help of a specialized team of experienced programmers and mathematicians, the process of obtaining efficient spreadsheet solutions can be very challenging. On the other hand, to hire and permanently maintain a team in charge of creating the right spreadsheet solutions for your business would be very costly. Added with the costs of regular spreadsheet-generating program purchases, the costs involved by forming and keeping a well-trained team of spreadsheet designers in your company can generate considerable financial losses to the business you are running, especially when you are the owner of a struggling micro-business. To eliminate the problems behind spreadsheet designing, the best option is to purchase high-quality ready-made spreadsheet solutions from a specialized, reliable provider.

Are you working with the latest version or is someone else out there making further edits? And with the looming presence of Sarbanes Oxley, tracking the formation of the work product is now a corporate imperative. Safety: There are good reasons a company spends millions of dollars on security for its servers and its data. In the wrong hands, company secrets can be divulged or employee information can be compromised. Email and Office applications have come a long way in the last 20 years. But business imperative notwithstanding and despite the dependence on these technologies, by themselves in their current state, they represent a band-aid, not a breakthrough.

Last night, a factory manager in Singapore stared at his Dell Latitude waiting for his master inventory to be updated by his supplier in Korea. Meantime in Seoul, emails are frantically exchanged among inventory clerks at three factories to produce a final document. Yesterday afternoon a CFO submitted financials for the Quarterly Board report. This morning his admin found out the most current HR data was on HRversion5.xls, not on HRversion4.xls that he used. The National Sales Manager finally received monthly forecast spreadsheets from six Regional Managers, who each collected spreadsheets from their respective sales teams. Even though it took two hours to painstakingly combine all the data, cut & paste errors produced an overage of more than $1 million in forecast revenue.
