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.

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.

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 cant express how much this can create a lot of issues like losing the ability to sort data correctly, use copy and paste correctly and the ability to run VBA code as its does not handle merged cells very well. One great way around is to use the alternative Centre Across Selection. This can easily be achieved by Format | Cells Alignment | Horizontal | Centre Across Selection. Give this alternative a try. 7. Always try to leave at least three or more blank rows above your data table. This can be easily used for criteria for features such as database functions and advanced filtering. Formatting a spreadsheet is something that can be a personal choice in particular colour schemes, or how busy the spreadsheet is, but one should always keep in mind the user, and how easy it is for a new user to follow your spreadsheet.

If you are working towards a savings goal, using a word processor or writing them out will require constant updating. With a spreadsheet, you can simple add in how much more youve saved, and if you had the right formulas set up, it will do it all for you. First, set up a different sheet for your long term goals and your short term goals. You can have long term goals and then break them up into short term goals as well as have separate goals. Make the sheet look appealing with bold headers and colors. If you dont know how to use excel or other spreadsheet programs, you really only need the basics. Search the net to find out how to get started with spreadsheets.

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.
