If its used to anywhere near its full potential it can allow you to amaze your friends and colleagues and more importantly allow you to save time and work smarter and faster. Many people spend a long time building spreadsheets with little forward thinking and therefore making it difficult to re-use a spreadsheet or work book or really difficult to even just update the same sheets without having to repeat a lot of the work already put into it. The first important rule that I always follow when creating a spreadsheet is to have the long term vision in mind. I do not mind investing time and energy into something I do once that can be reused over and over again.

Range Names group like cells together by some logic you decide. So rather than adding together the monthly sales in cells M5-M100, you can instead identify those cells by a name (say, MONTHSALES). Any data inserted between the first and last rows will be counted, your formulas will be easier to understand without all of those alphanumeric characters, and any errors will be much more obvious. Finally, use the "Trace Precedents" and "Show Dependents" functions in the Formulas tab for a visual representation of the values used to populate a sum, average, or other formula. This wont help you is the values themselves are bad, but itll help you visualize the flow of data into a destination cell and make any extraneous data obvious.

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.

I use a measuring wheel. I never use a tape measure any more. Tapes are too slow and usually only measure up to thirty-five feet. The measuring wheel can measure to one thousand feet and it costs the same as a big tape measure. Measuring wheels are usually made by the same companies that make tape measure, like Lufkin or Stanley, and they dont break as often as tape measures. Once you use a measuring wheel, you probably wont go back to a tape measure. I used to use the infra-red measuring device but I find them way too inaccurate. Usually, I measure before I start counting things like windows. Once I begin to count windows and molding, I make note of anything that will add or take away time, which means adding to the cost or lessening the cost. When I count windows, I make three columns, one for windows that are located below eight feet, one column for windows below fifteen feet, and one for windows twenty feet and above. This also applies to molding or anything else heights above eight feet, like dormers, ceiling medallions or whatever.

If you seek to speed up copying a cell across a row or down a column you need to select the desired cell which needs to be copied. After that you move the mouse cursor till the time it relocates itself above the bottom right corner of the cell. Now youll see that the cursor changes into a + sign. Then you need to hold down the left mouse button and drag it across either the row or column till the time all the cells you want to paste into are already selected. Youll see that if you release the button now your first cell will now be copied to all the selected cells. Instant Charts in Excel Spreadsheets OK this very sweet.

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.

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.

While Excel is a perfect tool so long as your data can be maintained in simple lists, the moment you have to manage more complex data or make frequent changes in the data, you are better off using the Microsoft Access database. Of course, you may still need to exchange data between Excel spreadsheets and Access database to conveniently present some data or till all the data is managed in Access. Excel spreadsheets are great to manage databases that can be maintained in the form of lists. For example, a database of the CDs or DVDs that you have is probably easily maintained in Excel. On the other hand, small and medium enterprises may need to maintain records of customers, sales and product inventory. Not only is the data more complex requiring frequent changes but you may often need to combine data from different sources. Microsoft Access is a wonderful database tool that can be used for small databases as well as fairly large databases. It is easy to build the databases and modify the data in Access. Further, there are powerful features built in Access that help it to protect the data in databases and carry out an Access recovery when the need arises.

Now that the columns you want reformatted to a different size have been chosen, it is time to do just that. Using your computers mouse, right click anywhere within the highlighted area. This will bring up a pop-up menu. On that menu is the option "column width". Click on that option. This will bring up a window asking you to enter in the width of the columns. If there is a number already in that box you will need to erase that first by highlighting it and pressing your "delete" key. Now type in the number "12" and click the "Ok" button. You should now see that all of the highlighted columns have changed to the size of 12. Repeat the steps above to alter the sizes and find one that looks more visually appealing for the spreadsheet that you are working on. Remember that at anytime you can undo what you just did by clicking the "Edit" menu option at the top of the screen and click the sub-menu option of "undo".
