This feature allows you to specify the conditions a value needs to meet and reject any values that dont meet your conditions. If you know, for example, the minimum and maximum values of your data, simply instruct Excel to highlight values that fall outside of that range. To take it a step further, create a drop-down list of values in an adjacent workbook, then use those to populate your active one. Youll limit your potential for error by choosing from an already known list of values. No fat finger errors here. Automate the Whole Thing Were biased, but the easiest and best way to prevent errors in Excel is to automate your work. Todays automation software packages (and there are many) work within and between your spreadsheets and other sources of data, like websites, to import, manipulate, copy, paste, and format data however you wish. Some log critical process information, sorts, and transforms data just like you would - through the presentation layer of the application. Unlike you (no offense), good automation software works without errors. If youre a CPA or work for any other firm that uses spreadsheets on a regular basis, consider automation software as an alternative to those every day manual processes.

Especially as the need for advanced reporting and intuitive financial analysis expands beyond the capabilities of Excel.

Employees working in the kitchen should have a separate spreadsheet from those working on the floor as servers, bartenders and cashiers. Employees working at-will or part-time should have a different spreadsheet from those working full-time at the restaurant. 2. Do not be afraid to rotate. Rotation may seem impractical at first because employees unfamiliar with a new set of skills will most likely work slow and commit errors more often as they learn the ropes.

This also works well among food servers, whose job takes a toll on their feet. One group of servers can staff the floor while another group take inventory, haul the supplies, or do some errands out of the restaurant. 3. Set up your employee schedule at least a month ahead of Christmas and New Year. A schedule set a month before the busiest season of the year takes care of any vacation time left for your employees. They will be more than willing to work extra hours if they can have more time spent with their families during the holidays. However, be very strict with the agreed restaurant spreadsheets. Your employees should understand that others depend on their commitment to show up early and work on the days they agreed to be on the job.

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.
