Once your checkbook is balanced, you should take a moment to look at the wealth of information contained therein. What? What is this wealth of information you are talking about? Try looking at your checkbook as a snap shot of your spending habits over time. By looking at what you purchase, where you go to purchase it, and how frequently you travel there to purchase it; it will soon be clear to your brain that all of those little trips to the store sure do add up! Look at all the gas you are using, and the wear and tear you are putting on your vehicle. Since you are spending the money already, you might as well purchase the items once a week and not on an everyday basis. Likewise, since you already know the items that you purchase on a daily basis, you might consider buying them in bulk (only if bulk means costing less!).

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.

IF Definition: IF(CONDITION, action or value if CONDITION is true, action or value if CONDITION is false) "If" Formula can work for anything that is based off of the data in another column. =IF(E15="ALUMINUM 2219", "TRUE", "FALSE") If the text of cell E15 is exactly "ALUMINUM 2219-T81" then the selected cell will display "TRUE", otherwise "FALSE" will be the value. This is a fairly easy macro to write and is good practice for beginners. Now we will make a message box automatically pop up when opening your workbook. You can either use the Auto Open method or the Workbook Open method. These macros will display the message "Hello" when you open the workbook. Sub Auto_Open() sgbox "Hello" End Sub This code would be located in the module. However, if you use the second method, the code must be in the workbook (double click "This Workbook" in the explorer window). Click on the drop down list (that says General) and select Workbook. Click on the drop down list (that says declarations) and select Open. Private Sub Workbook_Open() Msgbox "Hello" End Sub Youve just created your first macro. I will try to integrate different levels of difficulty from beginner, intermediate, and advanced tips for macros, formulas, and Excel tips in general.

Download the software and when complete it will automatically open Excel and ask you if you will like to enable macros that are part of the add-ins. You should click enable and then open the spreadsheet that you want to unlock. Two new options will appear under the Tools button; Unprotect Workbook and Unprotect Sheet. This program only works on 2000 and 2003 versions of Windows. Windows 2007 uses a more complex encryption method making it too difficult to crack. If the forgotten Excel password is associated with the file that contains the workbook then this password also needs to be bypassed. You will need to find software that unlocks all types of passwords, for files, workbooks and spreadsheets. Some of these products offer a free demo that will show you the first two characters of your password. This may be enough to jog your memory, otherwise you will need to purchase the product.

You gain access to him, and as you know, "access is power." Tip #2: Offer to help him with spreadsheets you dont get (yet) If you know that your boss gets other spreadsheets from elsewhere in the company (but you dont get them), ask him to get you copied on them, so you can include those on his dashboard. Find out what totals, charts, or "top n" lists he tends to scan those spreadsheets for. Then, tell your boss that you can consolidate the key information from all those spreadsheets as well (both what you prepare and what others prepare). You can add that to the Excel dashboard you send him every day (after implementing Tip # 1). Tell him how much time youll save him; how he can stay on top of the numbers with the all-inclusive dashboard.

After measuring and counting I take my numbers and go to my office and prepare my estimate. If you do a search in Ezines, you will find other articles by me describing how I use the Excel Spread Sheet to total up and multiply high time factors to those elements of the job that are over eight foot high. Why? It takes you a lot more time to paint a window at twenty feet that it does at eight feet of height. After I total everything using the formulas built into the spreadsheet, I go to my estimating software and prepare the estimate. I itemize everything, I never do an estimate that says $2000 (or whatever amount it is), for painting the interior. I itemize everything, and its easier because that is how I count things. Also, because if I count 16 shutters and when I am painting them I count 20, I tell the customer that I only charged for 16, and they can see it in black and white, so they have to pay extra for the extra shutters, this way I dont get cheated. Anyway the subject of itemizing your estimate is a whole new article.

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.

A popular desktop programme that is often used in conjunction with this product is MS presentation software PowerPoint. PowerPoint gives you the opportunity to create professional-looking files that contain data in many forms, including numerical and pictorial. If your presentation could benefit from being bolstered by figures than you may like to book a training course that can help you get to grips with how MS Excel documents can be shared. The process of moving data from your worksheet to a PowerPoint file is straightforward. While in PowerPoint you need to identify the area of the document that you wish to receive the MS Excel file, then you simply use the Paste Options button to import data. In addition to adding your spreadsheets to the presentation programme, you can also copy and paste tables and charts, which can help bring your presentation to life.
