In this part Exel
If adding, subtracting, multiplying, or dividing long lists of numbers sounds scary, relax. Microsoft endowed Office 2007 with the world's most popular spreadsheet program, dubbed Microsoft Excel. By using Excel, you can create budgets, track inventories, calculate future profits (or losses), and design bar, line, and pie charts so you can see what your numbers are really trying to tell you.
Think of Excel as your personal calculating machine that plows through your numbers for you — whether you need to manage something as simple as a home budget or something as wonderfully complex as an annual profit-and-loss statement for a Fortune 500 corporation.
By tracking numbers, amounts, lengths, measurements, or money with Excel, you can quickly predict future trends and likely results. Type in your annual salary along with any business expenses you have, and you can calculate how much income tax your government plans to steal from you in the future. Or play "What if?" games with your numbers and ask questions such as "Which sales region sells the most useless products?" "How much can I avoid paying in taxes if my income increases by 50 percent?" and "If my company increases sales, how much of an annual bonus can I give myself while letting my employees starve on minimum wages?"
So if you want to get started crunching numbers, this is the part of the book that shows you how to use Excel effectively.
The Basics of Spreadsheets: Numbers, Labels, and Formulas
Everyone needs to perform simple math. Businesses need to keep track of sales and profits, and individuals need to keep track of budgets. In the old days, people not only had to write down numbers on paper, but they also had to do all their calculations by hand (or with the aid of a calculator).
That's why people use Excel. Instead of writing numbers on paper, they can type numbers on the computer. Instead of adding or subtracting columns or rows of numbers by hand, Excel can do it for you automatically. Basically, Excel makes it easy to type and modify numbers and then calculate new results accurately and quickly.
