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.

In an analysis of multiple studies dating back to 2008, Marketwatch reported last year that almost 90% of Microsoft Excel Spreadsheets contain errors. Even when created with the utmost care, the number and complexity of the formulas contained in our spreadsheets create significant opportunities for bad data. 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. Lets ignore the stuff on the right side of the spectrum, and stick to what we can do right now. Did you know that highlighting a cell that contains a formula and pressing "Ctrl + [" will reveal the cells that feed into the total? Its a simple yet effective way to understand your data sources and identify what you missed, and what might have been double-counted. Simple stuff.

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.

You could pre-analyze the data in all those spreadsheets, and tack on comments that make the boss aware of your incomparable analytic capabilities. Nobody else (other than he, himself) gets all that data, so only you can come up with those insightful analyses. Tip #3: Automate the dashboard preparation Unless you are not doing any real work, you are probably thinking: "How am I supposed to do all the extra work to consolidate those spreadsheets into a dashboard"? If youre a programmer type, you can use little-known, built-in Excel capabilities such as the camera tool with VBA macros. Thats it. If you can successfully implement those 3 tips, youll be the person who controls the spreadsheet data your boss sees. Theres a catch, though: youd better be the first one to implement it. Because if one of your peers does this before you do, he becomes the indispensable person. Or, look for Excelential, a new kind of software that makes Excel dashboards easy to create. With software like Excelential, it will only take you minutes to create an Excel dashboard that brings charts and tables of data together from multiple spreadsheets. And once you have the dashboard set up, it will automatically update the dashboard for you every day.

The long term goals will probably be in years and the short term goals in months. Set up a formula to divide the total goal amount by the goal length in months. This is the amount you need to save each month to achieve your goals. Set up a budget to help you save more money if you feel you cant make your goal savings each month. For extra help, open up another sheet and record your progress. Every week or every month write about how you are reaching your goals and if you are able to save the minimum each month. Try to save a little more each month and cut down on your time table, or if you can reach your monthly goal, adjust it. With this plan, you can include goals to save for big items such as a car or house, or to pay down debt.

For this matter, budgeting software can only be regarded as a really good one if it is user-friendly and the input of information is hassle free. The moment that the initial setup is done, transaction recording and processing is expected to automatically take place. Good Reporting: Its Elements Good financial software must possess reporting elements in the module of the money management tool that you are using. These features must also be intuitive and straightforward to use, for they are the real hallmark of the reporting features of a better software. Basic Income and Spending If these two do not exist, your software can be regarded as completely futile. Income and spending must be easily known with a mere push of a certain button.

The first thing I do when I estimate a painting job is to get a feel for the customers motivation for their paint job. Are they looking to sell? Are they fixing the home up for a special event, like wedding or birthday? Or is it just overdue and really needs a paint job? The next thing I do after I have digested their reason for painting their home, is to look at the job and IMAGINE doing the job. Go through the job in your mind. Making notes about the job, things that may affect the time spent working. It could be anything like we cant use a ladder to paint the family room ceiling because the room is too large and we have to cut in the lights, or there is a lot of spackling to do like cracks and nail pops. Try to get a "feel for the job". Will it take longer than usual, or will it go faster than normal? Is the area cluttered? Will you be able to move fast or slow? Is there going to be a lot of traffic? Are there kids or pets? I do all this before I measure.
