4 Navigating a Workbook Microsoft Excel is a powerful program you can use to organize and analyze data An Excel worksheet consists of a grid of rows and columns Similar to a Word table, the intersection of a row and column is called a cell An Excel file, called a workbook, can contain one or more worksheets People sometimes refer to a worksheet or a workbook as a spreadsheet 4Microsoft Office 2013-Illustrated Fundamentals

5 Navigating a Workbook The cell with the dark border in the upper-left corner of the worksheet is the active cell The dark border surrounding the active cell is the cell pointer To make a cell active you need to click on it Every cell in a worksheet has a unique cell address; the intersection of a column and a row When you first start Excel, the active cell in the new workbook is cell A1 5Microsoft Office 2013-Illustrated Fundamentals

6 Navigating a Workbook The name box shows the address of the selected cell The formula bar, located just above the column headings, shows the contents of the selected cell A group of cells that share boundaries and are selected is call a cell range 6Microsoft Office 2013-Illustrated Fundamentals

9 Entering Labels and Values Entering data in a worksheet is similar to typing in a Word table Select the cell in which you want to enter data, then type in the data After typing the data, you must accept the entry by pressing [Enter]. [Tab], or an arrow key 9Microsoft Office 2013-Illustrated Fundamentals

10 Entering Labels and Values Most worksheets contain labels and values A label is text that describes data in a worksheet Values are numeric data that can be used in calculations You can edit a cell entry by double-clicking the cell to put the cell in Edit mode In Edit mode, select the part of the cell entry you want to correct and type the correction 10Microsoft Office 2013-Illustrated Fundamentals

13 Working with Columns and Rows You can adjust the width of a column or the height of a row using the mouse, ribbon, or shortcut menu You can also insert or delete columns and rows using the Insert and Delete buttons in the Cells group on the HOME tab The boxes containing letters are column headings The boxes containing numbers in front of each row are row headings AutoFit is a feature that adjusts the width of the column to fit the longest entry 13Microsoft Office 2013-Illustrated Fundamentals

16 Using Formulas To perform a calculation in a worksheet, you use a formula which is an equation Formulas start with an equal sign (=) and can contain numbers, mathematical operators, and cell references A cell reference is a cell address, such as E44, that identifies the location of a value used in a calculation If more than one operator is used in a formulas, Excel performs the calculations in the order of precedence 16Microsoft Office 2013-Illustrated Fundamentals

17 Using Formulas You can copy and move formulas just like the other data in a worksheet When you copy a formula to a new cell, Excel automatically replaces the original cell references with cell references that are in the same relative position as those in the original formula called relative cell referencing You can use the small black square at the bottom right corner of a cell, known as the fill handle, to drag the content of a cell to other adjacent cell 17Microsoft Office 2013-Illustrated Fundamentals

20 Using AutoSum Excel comes with a wide variety of functions, which are prewritten formulas designed for particular types of calculations The most frequently used worksheet function, SUM, totals all number and cell references included as function arguments An argument is information a function needs to make a calculation 20Microsoft Office 2013-Illustrated Fundamentals

21 Using AutoSum Functions save time and help ensure accuracy, and they are available for both simple calculations and extremely complex ones Each Excel function has a name that you usually see in all capital letters such as AVERAGE or DATE Because the SUM function is so commonly used, it has its own button on the HOME tab, also known as the AutoSum button 21Microsoft Office 2013-Illustrated Fundamentals

23 Changing Alignment and Number Format Excel automatically left-aligns text and right- aligns values Cell alignments can be changed using the buttons in the Alignment group on the HOME tab You can also use the Merge & Center button to merge several cells into one cell and center the text in the merged cell this is helpful in formatting a worksheet title so that it is centered above the worksheet data 23Microsoft Office 2013-Illustrated Fundamentals

24 Changing Alignment andNumber Format You can change the format of numbers to make your worksheet easier to read using the buttons in the Numbers group You can also insert rows and columns in your worksheet, when you do so, any cell references are updated to reflect the change 24Microsoft Office 2013-Illustrated Fundamentals

25 Changing Alignment and Number Format 25Microsoft Office 2013-Illustrated Fundamentals

26 Enhancing a Worksheet You can enhance an Excel worksheet to make it look more professional and increase its visual appeal In Page Layout view, you can add headers and footers containing information that you want to include at the top or bottom of each page You can also apply cell styles, which are predefined formatting options to ensure that similar elements in your worksheet are formatted consistently 26Microsoft Office 2013-Illustrated Fundamentals

28 Previewing and Printing a Worksheet When you finish working with a worksheet and have saved your work, you are ready to print Just like in Word, you can use the Print tab in Backstage view to preview the printed worksheet and specify settings you can change the orientation, adjust margins, specify the printer, specify the paper size and more 28Microsoft Office 2013-Illustrated Fundamentals
