A volatile function is one that re-calculates every time a work sheet changes. These include NOW(), TODAY(), OFFSET functions. If you use multiple or large amounts of these in a work book it will eventually start to slow it down. 5. Avoid Unnecessary Complex Formulas. One thing I have learned by developing spread sheets solutions for users is they (eventually) want to see all of the workings out of a formula.

This is where we can break down the formula components into smaller formulas in their own columns or what we call helper columns. If you can increase transparency of calculations it will make the logic of the spreadsheet easier for users to follow resulting in less queries.

Yet there is no tool for project management that is more popular or widespread than the spreadsheet, despite the fact that spreadsheets are not designed to be project support tools. Even in organizations with an established project management tool, spreadsheets are used. There are obvious reasons for this.

As a full-time day trader now for nearly six years, I know what a roller-coaster life can be when first entering the market arena. I also know how much easier your trading life can be with the proper tools, tactics and mindset. While all three are extremely important to your overall success as a trader, this article delves into the often neglected record-keeping aspect of your trading business. Why? Again, because it is very often neglected, especially by newer traders who are unaware of the challenges that theyre up against in this business endeavor known as trading - an endeavor that is well known to have a 90% failure rate amongst retail traders.
