Course Introduction This is the second of our two-part tutorial introducing this business and organizational application as part of the suite of Microsoft® Office 2010 Products. This course will introduce: An exploration of the Excel formula from construction to conceptualization The multitasking power of worksheet functions and their ease of use Techniques for converting data to dynamic tables and charts aiding in the appropriate dissemination of information Microsoft® Excel 2010 Copyright ©2012, Netsmart Technologies, Inc.

Course Objectives Copyright ©2012, Netsmart Technologies, Inc. All Rights Reserved. After completing this course, participants should be able to: Describe the basic structure of a Microsoft® Excel formula Identify the purpose of worksheet functions and how they are used Utilize ranges of data for improved organization and calculation functionality Transform existing data into a chart using the available styles and formats Understand the proper methods for sorting data

Formulas

Understanding Formulas Formulas must always start with an equal sign (=) when typed out in Excel. Benefits: Allow you to dynamically calculate values that can exist in multiple cells or across spreadsheets. Saves time and removes risk of costly errors associated with manual manipulation or calculation. Copyright ©2012, Netsmart Technologies, Inc. All Rights Reserved.

Working with Constants Creating a formula requires certain components to function. The data calculated is the operand, while the symbol defining the calculation is the operator. = 2 + 3 2 + 3 = Constant Operator Copyright ©2012, Netsmart Technologies, Inc. All Rights Reserved.

Hello, Operator? Formulas use specific operators to identify the calculation to be performed. These are symbols to represent relationships between numbers. There are four different types: Arithmetic Used to generate basic mathematical processes between values For example: (+) addition, (*) multiplication and (/) for division Arithmetic Used to generate basic mathematical processes between values For example: (+) addition, (*) multiplication and (/) for division Comparison Used to review two numbers for a specific degree and confirm or deny it For example: (=) equal to, (>) greater than and (<=) less than or equal to Comparison Used to review two numbers for a specific degree and confirm or deny it For example: (=) equal to, (>) greater than and (<=) less than or equal to Text Concatenation Takes two values and combines them For example: (&) ampersand Text Concatenation Takes two values and combines them For example: (&) ampersand Reference Operators Used to combine ranges of cells For example: (:) to designate a range (,) to designate individual data items Reference Operators Used to combine ranges of cells For example: (:) to designate a range (,) to designate individual data items Copyright ©2012, Netsmart Technologies, Inc.

Worksheet Functions

Organizing Data

Order of Operations Calculating numbers are always done in a specific order. Excel has a set order for operators and syntax to be computed.

Worksheet Functions

The Use of Functions Formulas can contain worksheet functions, pieces of built-in code acting as shortcuts to performing specific jobs. Functions assist to:  Simplify the construction of formulas  Allow formulas to perform incredibly complex calculations  Speed up some editing tasks  Provide conditional aspects to formula creation; that is, installing some decision-making properties Copyright ©2012, Netsmart Technologies, Inc. All Rights Reserved.

Correcting Mistakes Two types of problems you will encounter are errors and circular references. An error results when Excel cannot calculate a formula because of bad data. A circular reference occurs when a cell is referring to itself. Copyright ©2012, Netsmart Technologies, Inc. All Rights Reserved.

Utilizing Ranges

Range Management Copyright ©2012, Netsmart Technologies, Inc. All Rights Reserved. Ranges allow us to manage large groups of data. Naming ranges aids designers and users to identify information within a respective area. Use the Name Manager (Ctrl + F3) to filter, modify or delete ranges. Name Box:

Table and Charts

Display Enhancements

Conditional Formatting Provides visual displays easily activated for areas of your worksheet. Applies colors and icons to statistics that change to reflect their condition, such as:  High or low  Over or under  Within specific limits Copyright ©2012, Netsmart Technologies, Inc. All Rights Reserved.

Organizing Data

Sorting Order The order in which you sort data can either be by alphabet (A through Z or Z through A) or via a custom- defined order. When sorting by the alphabet in ascending or first to last order, information will populate as follows: 1.Numbers (low to high) 2.Dates (earliest date first) 3.Spaces 4.Special Characters 5.Alphabet Copyright ©2012, Netsmart Technologies, Inc.
