2 Copyright 2007 Gladstone Inc. Sponsored by ShoWorks software What is Excel? A computerized “spreadsheet” (worksheets) Spreadsheets are most often used for Cash flow analysis Budgeting Decision making (what-if analysis) Cost estimating Inventory management (limited) Financial reporting (limited) An Excel file is a workbook that contains multiple worksheets

3 Formula bar sheet tab active cell (C3: column C, row 3)

4 Worksheet Window Headings Columns (letters at the top)A, B, C Rows (numbers along the side)1, 2, 3 Cell intersection of a row and column Cell reference Example: A1 Active cell cell you currently working on Range cell or rectangular block of cells designated with the colon Example: A1:A5 says “cells A1 through A5” Sheet tabs at the bottom for “sheets” (pages) of workbook Copyright 2007 Gladstone Inc. Sponsored by ShoWorks software

5 Cell Contents Values Numbers, dates, text Text is left aligned, others are right aligned Formulas math Begin with = Examples include * Multiply / divide ^ power Contain numbers or cell references Result shows in cell Formula bar shows formula

6 Copyright 2007 Gladstone Inc. Sponsored by ShoWorks software Example Formulas Add cells: =A1+A2 =B14+F23 =A1+A2+A3+A4+A5 Multiply cells: =A1*A2

7 Copyright 2007 Gladstone Inc. Sponsored by ShoWorks software Functions A special prewritten formula that provides a shortcut for commonly used calculations Each function has a syntax Syntax specifies order of typing the parts, where to put commas, punctuation, etc. Determines order of arguments or values that Excel must use in the calculation =A1+A2+A3+A4+A5can be easier written as=SUM(A1:A5) =(A1+A2)/2 can be easier written as=AVERAGE(A1:A2) =MIN(A1:A3) =MAX(A1:A3)

8 Mike’s favorite functions SUM (sums a range of cells) AVERAGE (average of a range of cells) TODAY (shows the date/time as of now) IF (evaluates a condition and acts accordingly) MIN (returns the minimum value in a range of cells) MAX (returns the maximum value in a range of cells) IRR (financial - internal Rate of Return) NPV (financial - the Net Present Value of a range of income) Copyright 2007 Gladstone Inc. Sponsored by ShoWorks software

9 IF Function Makes a decision Format: =IF(condition, what to do if true, what to do if false) Put quotes around text argument =IF(A1>=60, “Pass”, “Fail”)

12 Copyright 2007 Gladstone Inc. Sponsored by ShoWorks software Relative Reference Notice “A2+B2” changes to “A3+B3” to “A4+B4” (Double-click on this table to invoke Excel, then double-click on the cell that you want to see the formula in) ABC

13 Copyright 2007 Gladstone Inc. Sponsored by ShoWorks software Absolute Reference Is a cell reference in a formula that does not change when copied into another cell Fixed location on spreadsheet Insert $ before the column and/or row of the cell reference =A1/$A$4 F4 Key for changing the type of cell references

14 Copyright 2007 Gladstone Inc. Sponsored by ShoWorks software Notice “B2*(1+C$6)” changes to “B3*(1+C$6)” to “B4*(1+C$6)” (Double-click on this table to invoke Excel, then double-click on the cell that you want to see the formula in) ABCD Absolute Reference

15 Copyright 2007 Gladstone Inc. Sponsored by ShoWorks software Changing Column Width Double-click dividing line for autofit to make column as wide as longest label or number in column Drag column heading dividing line Select column heading(s), go to Format menu>> Column >> Width or Autofit Selection Shift-click for adjacent columns Ctrl-click for non-adjacent columns
