The lessons in this guide will lead you through the fundamentals of creating and working with Excel spreadsheets.
Today's Excel spreadsheet isn't just for financial professionals. Microsoft Excel offers intuitive tools that make it easy to access, connect, and analyze critical data—regardless of your profession.
The first step in learning to use your new software is to start (or in computer parlance: launch) the Excel
Program.
Launch Excel:
1. SELECT (Click) the Windows Start button; this will bring up a set of choices in a menu.
2. Select Programs. Another menu will appear to the right.
3. Locate and Select Microsoft Office and another menu will appear on the right.
4. Locate and Select Microsoft Office Excel 2010. You have now launched Excel.
When Excel starts, it creates a new blank workbook, called Book 1. The Workbook is similar to a notebook. Inside you have sheets, each of which is called a worksheet. Each worksheet has a name that appears on a sheet tab at the bottom of the workbook.
