Learn step by step how to work with Excel!
   
 

Do you want to create an address list or cash book? Then Excel is a great program to use. Microsoft Excel is a spreadsheet program used for calculating figures. The word spread indicates that the text is spread out over multiple columns, and even multiple sheets. A spreadsheet is actually a large sheet of squared paper. You can write down something in each box (cell). This can be a number, an amount or text. It can also be an underlying formula that performs a certain calculation. This way you can create very easily a cash book or a list of your cd collection.
This book will teach you how to perform tasks such as entering data and formulas, formatting cells, designing charts and graphics, creating address lists, sorting, and filtering. This book also demonstrates how to make a cash book. With thorough explanations and step-by-step instructions, this book makes every task discussed easy to perform!
