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. For example a typical sales formula of =(Price*SalesQuantity)-(Price*SalesQuantity)*Discount+(Price*SalesQuantity)*Tax Users will want to know the Sales Value Totals, the Discounted Totals and the Sales Tax Value displayed is separate columns. 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.

You could pre-analyze the data in all those spreadsheets, and tack on comments that make the boss aware of your incomparable analytic capabilities. Nobody else (other than he, himself) gets all that data, so only you can come up with those insightful analyses. Tip #3: Automate the dashboard preparation Unless you are not doing any real work, you are probably thinking: "How am I supposed to do all the extra work to consolidate those spreadsheets into a dashboard"? If youre a programmer type, you can use little-known, built-in Excel capabilities such as the camera tool with VBA macros. Thats it. If you can successfully implement those 3 tips, youll be the person who controls the spreadsheet data your boss sees. Theres a catch, though: youd better be the first one to implement it. Because if one of your peers does this before you do, he becomes the indispensable person. Or, look for Excelential, a new kind of software that makes Excel dashboards easy to create. With software like Excelential, it will only take you minutes to create an Excel dashboard that brings charts and tables of data together from multiple spreadsheets. And once you have the dashboard set up, it will automatically update the dashboard for you every day.

IF Definition: IF(CONDITION, action or value if CONDITION is true, action or value if CONDITION is false) "If" Formula can work for anything that is based off of the data in another column. =IF(E15="ALUMINUM 2219", "TRUE", "FALSE") If the text of cell E15 is exactly "ALUMINUM 2219-T81" then the selected cell will display "TRUE", otherwise "FALSE" will be the value. This is a fairly easy macro to write and is good practice for beginners. Now we will make a message box automatically pop up when opening your workbook. You can either use the Auto Open method or the Workbook Open method. These macros will display the message "Hello" when you open the workbook. Sub Auto_Open() sgbox "Hello" End Sub This code would be located in the module. However, if you use the second method, the code must be in the workbook (double click "This Workbook" in the explorer window). Click on the drop down list (that says General) and select Workbook. Click on the drop down list (that says declarations) and select Open. Private Sub Workbook_Open() Msgbox "Hello" End Sub Youve just created your first macro. I will try to integrate different levels of difficulty from beginner, intermediate, and advanced tips for macros, formulas, and Excel tips in general.

Spreadsheet bid calculators are evolving through years of trial and error by individuals designing their own spreadsheets due to cost and affordability, which is a viable option for them if they have time to design these spreadsheets. Large contracting firms compile their constructions bids using expensive standalone programs, because they have proven platforms with a record of accuracy. Spreadsheet calculators deliver detailed bids to the user with excellent results and without the high operating cost of expensive programs. Spreadsheet calculators when placed on a laptop give contractors flexibility to estimate small projects and/or large projects on construction projects. Contractors waste valuable time and money returning to the office with the clients project information just to calculate the bid, then return to deliver the clients bid. Spreadsheet calculators calculate the required 10% overage on materials, including the contractors pricing structure for labor/material/equipment designed in the calculator.

Now that the columns you want reformatted to a different size have been chosen, it is time to do just that. Using your computers mouse, right click anywhere within the highlighted area. This will bring up a pop-up menu. On that menu is the option "column width". Click on that option. This will bring up a window asking you to enter in the width of the columns. If there is a number already in that box you will need to erase that first by highlighting it and pressing your "delete" key. Now type in the number "12" and click the "Ok" button. You should now see that all of the highlighted columns have changed to the size of 12. Repeat the steps above to alter the sizes and find one that looks more visually appealing for the spreadsheet that you are working on. Remember that at anytime you can undo what you just did by clicking the "Edit" menu option at the top of the screen and click the sub-menu option of "undo".

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.

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.
