Budgeting your income and expenses can be a challenging and time-consuming process, what with all the numbers involved. But theres no other way you can plan your familys spending than budgeting. Fortunately, a home budget spreadsheet can eliminate the headache and sweat that are usually involved in budgeting. You can find home budget spreadsheets on various websites; some of them come with tips and instructions on how to use them for planning your household income and expenses. So how do you make a family budget using a home budget spreadsheet? First, open the spreadsheet program in your computer and then make four pages with four categories (budget, income, utilities, and debt). In the Budget page, list all your income, debts, and utilities. The cell in each item in the Budget page will be linked later to the total cell from the respective page of every item such as income and utilities.

It seems unlikely that Excel spreadsheets will disappear from the finance department completely; admittedly, they are still a really useful tool for auditing, even for very large businesses (of 1,000+ headcounts) and they will probably remain the go-to program of choice for creating graphs and charts. However, businesses that are managing to grow and are serious about both productivity and regulatory compliance will likely move their reconciliation and monthly close process to specialist programs, as opposed to makeshift spreadsheets. Especially as the need for advanced reporting and intuitive financial analysis expands beyond the capabilities of Excel.

If you are an office clerk or reports assistant or even if you are a manager you will have to send reports on a monthly basis and more often they will have to do with comparing old and new files as well as updating them. To compare spreadsheet reports, you will have to understand the values being given and consolidate it with any changes made for a certain period of time. If you will be dealing with several files here to compare, you may find this a very daunting task. However, knowing that there is a tool you can use to make this task easier for you is a great relief. Working in a financial firm would entail a lot of reports to be submitted on a weekly, monthly, semi- monthly, quarterly and a yearly basis. All of these reports should be monitored, and most of the data where these reports come from are based from several spreadsheets that you will have to consolidate in a timely manner. To effectively have these reports updated, you can make use of a file comparison tool that can compare spreadsheet files and allow the user to make changes to it from one file to another.

Download the software and when complete it will automatically open Excel and ask you if you will like to enable macros that are part of the add-ins. You should click enable and then open the spreadsheet that you want to unlock. Two new options will appear under the Tools button; Unprotect Workbook and Unprotect Sheet. This program only works on 2000 and 2003 versions of Windows. Windows 2007 uses a more complex encryption method making it too difficult to crack. If the forgotten Excel password is associated with the file that contains the workbook then this password also needs to be bypassed. You will need to find software that unlocks all types of passwords, for files, workbooks and spreadsheets. Some of these products offer a free demo that will show you the first two characters of your password. This may be enough to jog your memory, otherwise you will need to purchase the product.

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.

Range Names group like cells together by some logic you decide. So rather than adding together the monthly sales in cells M5-M100, you can instead identify those cells by a name (say, MONTHSALES). Any data inserted between the first and last rows will be counted, your formulas will be easier to understand without all of those alphanumeric characters, and any errors will be much more obvious. Finally, use the "Trace Precedents" and "Show Dependents" functions in the Formulas tab for a visual representation of the values used to populate a sum, average, or other formula. This wont help you is the values themselves are bad, but itll help you visualize the flow of data into a destination cell and make any extraneous data obvious.

As a financial accounting professional, it is almost certain you will have been using Microsoft Excel spreadsheets during the month end close process. It is also extremely likely you will have experienced problems with them too! Over the last thirty-odd years, spreadsheets have become a mainstay in finance departments, used for all sorts of tasks, from reconciliation to reporting and everything in between. Despite their popularity with finance staff, they still pose a massive margin for error. The expected error rate when reconciling with spreadsheets is 0.8-1.8% and though this may seem small, for a company with a $1m turnover this represents a risk of $80,000-$180,000.
