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.

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.

You can add more data if you would like or even use an already existing spreadsheet. The choice is completely up to you; however the steps to reformat the column widths are all the same as you will soon see. The next step is to highlight the columns that you want to reformat. To reformat the columns we are using in our example, using the month names, you need to click on the column header labeled "A". Now hold down the "shift" key and click the column header labeled "L". In other words you are clicking the first column and the last column. If you chose to use your own spreadsheet, your columns that you use may be different. You could also click on column header "A" and holding down the left mouse button, drag the cursor over top of the final column, in this case "L", and let go of the mouse button. Either way is fine.

While Excel is a perfect tool so long as your data can be maintained in simple lists, the moment you have to manage more complex data or make frequent changes in the data, you are better off using the Microsoft Access database. Of course, you may still need to exchange data between Excel spreadsheets and Access database to conveniently present some data or till all the data is managed in Access. Excel spreadsheets are great to manage databases that can be maintained in the form of lists. For example, a database of the CDs or DVDs that you have is probably easily maintained in Excel. On the other hand, small and medium enterprises may need to maintain records of customers, sales and product inventory. Not only is the data more complex requiring frequent changes but you may often need to combine data from different sources. Microsoft Access is a wonderful database tool that can be used for small databases as well as fairly large databases. It is easy to build the databases and modify the data in Access. Further, there are powerful features built in Access that help it to protect the data in databases and carry out an Access recovery when the need arises.

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.

Oh sure, if he has to drill down into the details, he will see the spreadsheets others prepared. But most of the time, your creation is all he needs to see. Being gatekeeper of your boss spreadsheets will give you a huge advantage in the game of office politics. In these depressed times, getting more attention from your boss could add to job security. Heres what you can do to become that gatekeeper. Tip #1: Consolidate the key information from multiple spreadsheets into a dashboard Create an Excel dashboard containing the key charts and data from all the spreadsheets both you and your boss work with. Surprise him with an email containing the dashboard, to show him you are analyzing all the numbers and providing him with the critical information. And then offer to give him an updated dashboard every day.

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.

When it comes to using Microsofts Excel Spreadsheet program there is no question that there are a variety of ways to accomplish many tasks. One of the things I like about Excel is the ability to format multiple columns at the same time giving them the same width. If you are unfamiliar with how this is done, read on and take a look at the steps I perform to achieve this task. You will see that it is very easy to do. The first thing you want to do, obviously, is open up Excel. Once Excel is displayed on your screen, go ahead and type in cell "A1" the month name "January". In the cell "B1" type in the month name, "February", in "C1" type in "March" and so on until you type in all twelve months each in their own cell on the spreadsheet.
