The data is what is used to create the electronic model and the model is then shown on the screen. A model in essence is an electronic version of a real life situation. For example you could model your businesses profitability and then run scenarios based on what money you spent, what money came in and when. You could even investigate whether a cash flow crisis was likely with a particular scenario. The key advantage of electronic spreadsheets is their ability to have their data modified quickly and the result be provided almost instantaneously. Calculations undertaken using the manual method could have taken hours, months or even years. Once the data is entered into a spreadsheet it can be used to produce Graphs for documents, reports or even presentations. For example you could enter your data in Microsoft Excel and then create a graph. You could then copy and paste the graph into a Microsoft PowerPoint presentation.

If you would like to create a quick view of just a few records from Microsoft Access, you can simply copy the data from a datasheet view in Access and then paste the data into Excel. If you would like to have a static copy of a large amount of data from an Access database, you can save the data from an Access table, form or report and copy it to an Excel worksheet. These methods work well when you do not need to refresh the contents of the Excel worksheet every time there is a change in the Access data. If you would like the data in the Excel worksheet to be linked to the Access data so that every time the data in the Access database changes, the Excel data refreshes too, you might have to create an Office Connection. For example, you might store all your employees payroll data in an Access database and only include monthly summaries in an Excel worksheet.

By using a query or an Office Data Connection you can link the source and retrieve data as required. The data in the Excel sheet will be refreshed when there are changes in the source. Of course, if there are problems such as corruption in the Access database, it might have an effect on the Excel worksheet as well. You might have to reconstruct the worksheet after carrying out an Access recovery. Similarly, you might want to move some Excel data permanently into an Access database in order to take advantage of the many features of Access such as multi-user capabilities, data management abilities and security. You can convert the data from an Excel worksheet to Access by converting an entire Excel range into an Access database. On the other hand, you might want to simply summarize or analyze the data from an Excel worksheet. You can create an Access report that will take the data from the range specified in the Excel spreadsheet.

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.

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.

This feature allows you to specify the conditions a value needs to meet and reject any values that dont meet your conditions.

Youll limit your potential for error by choosing from an already known list of values. No fat finger errors here.
