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.

Did you know that there are two driving forces, or perspectives at work in achieving your long term goals in life? It true, they are yours and the author behind the home budget or budget spreadsheet you have opted to use on a daily bases; and any commitment failure from either end will most likely cause a derailment of any and all of your long term goals. So let us take under consideration, these two perspectives and how they apply to achieving your long term goals in life.The first perspective is of course yours, and is broken down into two parts. These two areas are your personal commitment to achieving your long term goals and will work apart from your budget spreadsheet; but they are none the less foundational to its success. First, you will need to exercise focus and/or determination. Please, keep in the cracks and crevices of your mind that abstract goals in life that are akin to "power", "financial freedom", and "being rich" are nice; but will soon fade away, since wealth and power are at best relative; you will never earn enough, nor have enough power. Ergo, these are unfocused and unrealistic "types" of goals to have in life. Focused goals in life should revolve around items of need, trips or get-a-ways, and personal achievements. Thou, this is not a comprehensive list; these are however, tangible and attainable for the resolute of mind. Secondly, you will also need to allow for time in reaching your long term goals in life. Many families become discouraged in the short term, soon giving up for failing to grasp this basic concept in Long term goal achievement. When looking at other families we tend to see the results and not the determination, hard work, and time that had produced such results. So please, work hard, remain patient, focus on each goal, and allow for plenty of time!

Multiple Accounts Being Handled Financial software can be considered good if it can handle all the users credit card transactions, accounts, income and expenditures. The softwares reporting side must have the capacity to show the account used and must also intuitively generate the related reports, like complete income expenditure of every account and also, show the category of expenditures for which the payments were made. Reporting Softwares Adaptability Since people live diverse lives, it is essential that the software is customizable for this diversity to be reflected. Rigid software can cause issues in usability and can even be deemed futile if it will not suit the expenditure and lifestyle patterns of the user.

Published at Thursday, June 03rd 2021, 01:41:39 AM. Expenses Spreadsheet By Alexandra Reid. Are you wondering "How do I use the LEFT, RIGHT, and LEN functions in Microsoft Excel spreadsheets?" Then youve come to the right place. The LEFT or RIGHT function returns the leftmost or rightmost characters from a text value. Example: =LEFT(A2,3) If value in cell A2 were 184770 the formula would display the number 4. =Right(B3,2) If value in cell B3 were 16579 the formula would display the number 7. LEN (length) returns the number of characters in a text string. Example: =LEN(A2) If the value in cell A2 is 16498 then the formula will display 5. Combine the two in a single formula example. Say you have a single digit which indicates length in.125 increments. Double digits indicates length in whole inches AND.125 increments. =IF(LEN(D2)=2,LEFT(D2,1)+(RIGHT(D2,1)*0.125),RIGHT(D2,1)*0.125) If the length of the value of cell D2 (the length number) equals 2 (which means it is double digit), then add the left digit plus the right digit multiplied by 0.125, otherwise take the single digit and multiply by 0.125.

Keep to universal colours if you can, I find that black, white and grey colours work best, they look neat and professional but give the spreadsheet added value. 4. Adhere to default formatting of cells, that is text is aligned to the left and numbers to the right- this is what Excel expects. This can greatly speed up troubleshooting if you having issued with a formulas or referencing cells, as at a glance you can tell if the cells should be formatted and text or numeric. 5. Format cells as text only if you really have to, as all of the data you enter into a text formatted cell becomes text, even if you meant it to be numeric, this is one thing you do not want- any formula cells to be formatted as text.
