Element Three - Your budget spreadsheet or home budget software should provide you with useful secondary supplemental add-ons. Everybody loves the pop-up calendar and calculator; but what do they offer that you do not already have on your computer? Let us examine four types of add-ons that not only offer useful information, but also aid in the reaching of short and long term goals. They are savings, credit cards, charts, and Christmas. Savings- If you are planning to go beyond a stagnant type of life style, then you will have to integrate into your financial picture some type of savings program. For it is savings over time that allow for the achievement of many short or long term goals (L.T.G.s). This one particular element should be built into your home budget and allow for savings, all from one bank account.

Budgeting your income and expenses can be a challenging and time-consuming process, what with all the numbers involved. But theres no other way you can plan your familys spending than budgeting. Fortunately, a home budget spreadsheet can eliminate the headache and sweat that are usually involved in budgeting. You can find home budget spreadsheets on various websites; some of them come with tips and instructions on how to use them for planning your household income and expenses. So how do you make a family budget using a home budget spreadsheet? First, open the spreadsheet program in your computer and then make four pages with four categories (budget, income, utilities, and debt). In the Budget page, list all your income, debts, and utilities. The cell in each item in the Budget page will be linked later to the total cell from the respective page of every item such as income and utilities.

The most important thing I always keep in mind when creating a new Excel work book or worksheet is I NEVER assume that I will not want to add in new formulas or data to the spreadsheet because it is more than likely I will. With this is the forefront of your mind I would always spend around 80% of my time planning the spreadsheet and only 20% of my time implementing it. If you have not carried out spreadsheet design in this way before it may seem a little over the top, extreme or way out, or even inefficient, but the return on the investment of this time planning is extreme and way out also. Believe me it is quickly paid back over a very short amount of time. Once you have used this method and spend most of your time planning, the actual planning of the Excel spreadsheet in itself gets easier and more efficient. As we know the best return of investment to is to carry out an action once, and then reap the rewards over and over again by re using this action. In Excel an obvious example would be to create a macro that automates some activity you carry out on a regular basis or to create a template that will be re- used time and time again. This is my aim with this approach to spreadsheet building. To really plan the spreadsheet, and dont be afraid to spend a decent amount of time on it. My advice to you would be try this out on your next spreadsheet even if it seems a bit alien. Let me know how you find this approach to spreadsheet building.

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.

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.

There is software that you can find on the internet that can help you access your documents. The basic software is free and on most occasions the only program required for users. To remove the password that was set on the excel file you can use the password remover software. This is is a program that may be used to remove, retrei or unlock a password on an Excel sheet or workbook. Most passwords that are used to protect files are usually given to the workbook or individual spreadsheets. This allows users to view the file without making any changes to the structure. The only person who can modify the data is the creator of the file.

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.

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.

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.
