After you have spent some time collecting figures and transforming them into a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet you may need to present your workbook to clients and colleagues. Thanks to the huge array of features offered by the programme, you can design your workbooks in many different forms. Some entrepreneurs prefer information to be presented in straightforward tables, while others benefit from the varied functions of the software and they create coloured pie charts to reflect the data. Whichever way you choose to present information, you are likely to find that MS Excel is the backbone of many workplace documents that require analysis and presentation of data. A great feature of the product is that is has been designed to help you produce workbooks that can be easily moved to other applications. For instance, if you have recently put-together a spreadsheet that shows which departments are underperforming, you may wish to transfer information to other MS products.

It seems unlikely that Excel spreadsheets will disappear from the finance department completely; admittedly, they are still a really useful tool for auditing, even for very large businesses (of 1,000+ headcounts) and they will probably remain the go-to program of choice for creating graphs and charts. However, businesses that are managing to grow and are serious about both productivity and regulatory compliance will likely move their reconciliation and monthly close process to specialist programs, as opposed to makeshift spreadsheets. Especially as the need for advanced reporting and intuitive financial analysis expands beyond the capabilities of Excel.

If you share Excel spreadsheets with other people, you may want the option to leave comments to explain why you have done something, or to ask questions of the other users in regard to the data. Rather than picking up the phone, or sending a lengthy email you can put comments onto the spreadsheet. Comments are a lot like sticky notes that can be viewed, or removed. You may know the basics of adding comments, but I have included a few lesser known tricks. These skills can be used in any version of Excel although the 2013 and 2007 version steps may be a little different from the ones I am describing for Excel 2010. The Basics The basic commands for comments can be found using your Right-click menu or the Comments group on the Review ribbon. When you choose New Comment, a box will appear that includes the user name of your computer (you can change this in the General tab of the Excel Options) and a cursor that indicates it is waiting for you to start typing. When you navigate away from the cell the comment box will disappear and be replaced by a red triangle in the top right corner. Any time you hover over a cell with a red triangle, the comment will be displayed.

The long term goals will probably be in years and the short term goals in months. Set up a formula to divide the total goal amount by the goal length in months. This is the amount you need to save each month to achieve your goals. Set up a budget to help you save more money if you feel you cant make your goal savings each month. For extra help, open up another sheet and record your progress. Every week or every month write about how you are reaching your goals and if you are able to save the minimum each month. Try to save a little more each month and cut down on your time table, or if you can reach your monthly goal, adjust it. With this plan, you can include goals to save for big items such as a car or house, or to pay down debt.

Whats more, the damage done can also affect public perception and trust in your brand, leading to less tangible but just as dangerous losses. Is it possible to move away from spreadsheets? For smaller businesses, the number of accounts needing to be reconciled is relatively small, so it makes sense for smaller businesses to continue using a combination of spreadsheets and QuickBooks. In turn, the team that manages the financial close process will also be relatively small, perhaps just one or two finance staff, so there is also less room for data handling errors. However, as the number of accounts to reconcile grows and the team managing your monthly close process is expanded, errors can easily worm their way in to the reconciliation process. Once a business has grown, it makes sense to move away from Excel spreadsheets and QuickBooks, particularly for tasks like reconciling. At its capacity, the finance department of a large organisation can generate up to five hundred spreadsheets a month - so its easy to see how errors and duplications can creep in.

He will now depend on you for the information, instead of going to the people who prepare the raw spreadsheets. 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.

Another useful function is that you can add hyperlinks to your PowerPoint slides that lead to your MS Excel documents. This can prove useful should you want to have spreadsheets available to add extra information, if it is required during your presentation. Once you have created charts in MS Excel you may like any changes to them to be linked to PowerPoint slides. This is possible using the Microsoft Office Excel Chart Object, which allows you to create links to diagrams that have been updated, ensuring your presentation contains the most recent adaptations to spreadsheet data. Another application that you can paste your MS Excel data into is MS Word. This can be beneficial to those who need to create informative documents that feature spreadsheets.

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. In summary keep it neat, simple and adhere to predefined formats to eliminate any slow down or errors in formulas due to incorrect cell formatting.
