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.

Breakdown of Expenditure Really good software must present to you the detailed and exact breakdown of the expenses that you have made. These expenses must be categorized properly and defined easily, depending on the various time periods like year, month or day. These data can also be summarized through an income expense spreadsheet.

The use of colored blocked graphs as well as pie charts make it easier to check if the expenses figures are proportioned to your income.

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.

Spreadsheet bid calculators are evolving through years of trial and error by individuals designing their own spreadsheets due to cost and affordability, which is a viable option for them if they have time to design these spreadsheets. Large contracting firms compile their constructions bids using expensive standalone programs, because they have proven platforms with a record of accuracy. Spreadsheet calculators deliver detailed bids to the user with excellent results and without the high operating cost of expensive programs. Spreadsheet calculators when placed on a laptop give contractors flexibility to estimate small projects and/or large projects on construction projects. Contractors waste valuable time and money returning to the office with the clients project information just to calculate the bid, then return to deliver the clients bid. Spreadsheet calculators calculate the required 10% overage on materials, including the contractors pricing structure for labor/material/equipment designed in the calculator.

When developing a spread sheet solution in Excel, you make decisions and change features and formulas which at the time make perfect sense and have a logical flow. Once you come back to amend, or enhance or troubleshoot your spread sheet, what made sense at the time of development, may not be so obvious at a later date. So here are my top 5 things to avoid when developing a spreadsheet solution to enable you to troubleshoot any issues and make your spread sheet as efficient as possible. 1. Merged Cells. They may look good, but they can play havoc on the functionality of you spreadsheet including losing the ability to sort data correctly or run VBA as it does not handle merged cells very well. You also lose the functionality of a normal data table in Excel; that is the great functions such as Pivot Tables, SUMIF, COUNTIF etc the list goes on!. If you want to use Auto Fill- no chance with merged cells and do not expect to be able to copy and paste either.
