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.

For example, designing a calculator to each structural element included in a footer foundation - Normally you would estimate your concrete, reinforcing bar, excavation, back-fill, and form work separately. When using a specialized concrete footing contractor for an example, the contractor will arrive at the clients project site at the appointment time, walk the site where the proposed project will be, and look over the construction drawings. A well-designed spreadsheet calculator will deliver a nice bill of materials when you input depth, thickness, width, length of footer, and type of reinforcing material. The calculator delivers a total material cost, labor cost, plus the detailed bill of materials including 10 to 20% standard overage included in each bid.

Why, well because they are hidden!. They can confuse users who are trying to follow the logic of a spreadsheet, users cant see them but Excel will still use those cells in calculations which can then appear to users to cause erroneous data. They can also cause issues with importing new data into your work book and issues with and VBA code. 3. Avoid Blank Cells, Rows and Columns. You may not always have a value for every single cell in your work book, but leaving cells completely blank has a massive impact on some functions in Excel. For example -AUTOSUM or using filtering with blank cells will affect Excels calculations. If you have blanks, always consider using zeros or an appropriate descriptive value such as NA.

Range Names group like cells together by some logic you decide. So rather than adding together the monthly sales in cells M5-M100, you can instead identify those cells by a name (say, MONTHSALES). Any data inserted between the first and last rows will be counted, your formulas will be easier to understand without all of those alphanumeric characters, and any errors will be much more obvious. Finally, use the "Trace Precedents" and "Show Dependents" functions in the Formulas tab for a visual representation of the values used to populate a sum, average, or other formula. This wont help you is the values themselves are bad, but itll help you visualize the flow of data into a destination cell and make any extraneous data obvious.

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.

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.

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.
