Sitting at your favorite restaurant hand-in-hand with your special someone with a steady stream of culinary delights wafting by, lights down low, and the occasional whispering of what might be violin music from somewhere in the establishment. What was to be the beginning of a night to remember in one sense of the word is now, instantly transformed into a night you would more likely want to forget by the look of distain engraved, as if on granite, worn by the face of your returning waitress; your credit card did not go through! More often then not when we start to speak about a home budget or budget spreadsheet, we tend to focus on the setting up and the working with the budget; as if that was all there was to running a familys home budget; never touching on the broader and more general aspects of home budgeting that interlace to form a overall successful financial picture. The successfulness of your budget spreadsheet will be reflected in how you handle, define, and process all of your financial information. For todays discussion, we will only focus on your familys checkbook and the effects misinformation can have your familys home budget.

Once your checkbook is balanced, you should take a moment to look at the wealth of information contained therein. What? What is this wealth of information you are talking about? Try looking at your checkbook as a snap shot of your spending habits over time. By looking at what you purchase, where you go to purchase it, and how frequently you travel there to purchase it; it will soon be clear to your brain that all of those little trips to the store sure do add up! Look at all the gas you are using, and the wear and tear you are putting on your vehicle. Since you are spending the money already, you might as well purchase the items once a week and not on an everyday basis. Likewise, since you already know the items that you purchase on a daily basis, you might consider buying them in bulk (only if bulk means costing less!).

Gain the benefits of understanding what your spending habits are. Please, do not forget that you are the first line of defense against misinformation! No one tries to drive their vehicle with their eyes closed because they know that they will soon disassemble their vehicle by the means of a tree. In the same sense, that is how it is for those who close their eyes to their home budget spreadsheet; soon they too have undone all of their dreams in life. An un-attended checkbook can cause your budget spreadsheet to reflect money that you may not have. It will give others un-monitored access to your checkbook. There is no happy end to an un-attended checkbook. If you do not understand your spending habits, and control your financial picture by the means of a home budget or budget spreadsheet. Soon, very soon, your money will be needlessly in someone elses bank account!

In an analysis of multiple studies dating back to 2008, Marketwatch reported last year that almost 90% of Microsoft Excel Spreadsheets contain errors. Even when created with the utmost care, the number and complexity of the formulas contained in our spreadsheets create significant opportunities for bad data. With about 1 Billion users of Microsoft Office users in the world, the absolute number of errors that potentially exist range in the hundreds of millions. We have some thoughts on how to prevent errors in Excel spreadsheets. Here are three of them: Most Errors are Caused by Bad Calculations: Check Your Formulas Methods of testing your formulas range from the simple to the absurdly complex. Lets ignore the stuff on the right side of the spectrum, and stick to what we can do right now. Did you know that highlighting a cell that contains a formula and pressing "Ctrl + [" will reveal the cells that feed into the total? Its a simple yet effective way to understand your data sources and identify what you missed, and what might have been double-counted. Simple stuff.

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.

If you seek to speed up copying a cell across a row or down a column you need to select the desired cell which needs to be copied. After that you move the mouse cursor till the time it relocates itself above the bottom right corner of the cell. Now youll see that the cursor changes into a + sign. Then you need to hold down the left mouse button and drag it across either the row or column till the time all the cells you want to paste into are already selected. Youll see that if you release the button now your first cell will now be copied to all the selected cells. Instant Charts in Excel Spreadsheets OK this very sweet. If you want to make a chart from a given table in Excel simply select the required cells in the table of numbers and hit F11. Presto we now have a chart!

I use a measuring wheel. I never use a tape measure any more. Tapes are too slow and usually only measure up to thirty-five feet. The measuring wheel can measure to one thousand feet and it costs the same as a big tape measure. Measuring wheels are usually made by the same companies that make tape measure, like Lufkin or Stanley, and they dont break as often as tape measures. Once you use a measuring wheel, you probably wont go back to a tape measure. I used to use the infra-red measuring device but I find them way too inaccurate. Usually, I measure before I start counting things like windows. Once I begin to count windows and molding, I make note of anything that will add or take away time, which means adding to the cost or lessening the cost. When I count windows, I make three columns, one for windows that are located below eight feet, one column for windows below fifteen feet, and one for windows twenty feet and above. This also applies to molding or anything else heights above eight feet, like dormers, ceiling medallions or whatever.
Published at Monday, May 31st 2021, 16:25:25 PM. Expenses Spreadsheet By Autumn Clark. The most important thing I always keep in mind when creating a new Excel work book or worksheet is I NEVER assume that I will not want to add in new formulas or data to the spreadsheet because it is more than likely I will. With this is the forefront of your mind I would always spend around 80% of my time planning the spreadsheet and only 20% of my time implementing it. If you have not carried out spreadsheet design in this way before it may seem a little over the top, extreme or way out, or even inefficient, but the return on the investment of this time planning is extreme and way out also. Believe me it is quickly paid back over a very short amount of time. Once you have used this method and spend most of your time planning, the actual planning of the Excel spreadsheet in itself gets easier and more efficient. As we know the best return of investment to is to carry out an action once, and then reap the rewards over and over again by re using this action. In Excel an obvious example would be to create a macro that automates some activity you carry out on a regular basis or to create a template that will be re- used time and time again. This is my aim with this approach to spreadsheet building. To really plan the spreadsheet, and dont be afraid to spend a decent amount of time on it. My advice to you would be try this out on your next spreadsheet even if it seems a bit alien. Let me know how you find this approach to spreadsheet building.

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.
