Microsoft (MS) Excel is a spreadsheet program with sophisticated computation, charting, and database functions that enable the user to quickly and easily perform both simple and complex calculations.
You can confirm changes in the figures without the need to calculate them yourself. Excel also provides many formatting options that add quality to your presentation representing both the figures and the images you want to present.
Spreadsheet design skills are important for Excel users. Unlike many other computer programs, spreadsheets require thought and planning to make them efficient and effective. To develop useful spreadsheets, consider the following elements:
• What are the desired outputs?
• What are the needed inputs?
• How is the data positioned?
• What mathematical expressions must be used?
• Who will be using the spreadsheet?
