Checkbook registers come in many sizes, shapes, and colors; yet, for all of their physical diversities, their only function is to provide information about your bank account. And since you are basing your lifestyle on the amount of funds in your bank account; it would behoove you to have an accurate account. Remember, you are the first line of defense against potential problems that can arise from having misinformation. Of course, you can be like our friend above who waited and had his card returned, deflated and useless only then to realize that there is a serious problem. First, you must balance your checkbook. You can either use software, or pen and paper to accomplish this task. Now, if the concept of balancing a checkbook eludes you, just search the internet on how to balance your checkbook. And, as you balance your checkbook, you should pay particular attention to missed transactions, bad math, or any unexpected transactions. I remember that on one occasion I had recorded an unexpected deposit as a withdraw in my checkbook register. So, to my chagrin, my $150.00 deposit became on paper, a $300.00 withdraw.

Keep to universal colours if you can, I find that black, white and grey colours work best, they look neat and professional but give the spreadsheet added value. 4. Adhere to default formatting of cells, that is text is aligned to the left and numbers to the right- this is what Excel expects. This can greatly speed up troubleshooting if you having issued with a formulas or referencing cells, as at a glance you can tell if the cells should be formatted and text or numeric. 5. Format cells as text only if you really have to, as all of the data you enter into a text formatted cell becomes text, even if you meant it to be numeric, this is one thing you do not want- any formula cells to be formatted as text.

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.

The long term goals will probably be in years and the short term goals in months. Set up a formula to divide the total goal amount by the goal length in months. This is the amount you need to save each month to achieve your goals. Set up a budget to help you save more money if you feel you cant make your goal savings each month. For extra help, open up another sheet and record your progress. Every week or every month write about how you are reaching your goals and if you are able to save the minimum each month. Try to save a little more each month and cut down on your time table, or if you can reach your monthly goal, adjust it. With this plan, you can include goals to save for big items such as a car or house, or to pay down debt.

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.

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.
