TIPS: When font size is increased and the column is too narrow to display the numbers, pound signs (####) display in the cell.
Once a cell or range of cells is selected, formatting changes can be applied.
To select columns b-f, drag the mouse across the column letters b through f to select all the cells in the columns.
Remember to use the "Select All" button so that the font change can be made for the entire worksheet (even cells not yet filled).
Read and take notes over pages 212-215.
DAY 10
Do Exercise 10 - Copy and paste data and formulas and printing an open worksheet.
Staple XL10 to the top of OXL10 and write what it is and what you learned. Always..Name, Date, Hour, & File Name.
TIPS: relative cell referencing is when a formula is copied from one cell to another, it automatically adjusts. For example, =B4+B5 in column B would become =C4+C5 when copied to column C.
An absolute cell reference is when the formula remains constant when it's copied. This is accomplished by adding a $ sign before both the column letter and row number. For example, =$B$4+$B$5 copied into column C would remain the same. The B's would not change do C's.
The FILL HANDLE is located in the bottom right corner of the cell.
The illustration displays the formula in H7, however your screen will display the answer.
In Office 2000, you can copy and collect up to 12 objects on the office clipboard. When you choose the Paste command, the last item copied to the Clipboard will be pasted in the destination cell. Use the Clipboard toolbar to choose a previous selection.
If your quantity, EXAMPLE: 30 turns into 30E-11 try this:
For some reason the custom text format was selected...... go back to the format and then go into format that cell or range..depending on where it is happening and redefine what type of format you want for those cells....the custom (special) format is good for certain things, but it always redefines cells when you don't want it to. I sure hope that this makes sense. Let me know!
Okay! Here it is. The column f should be formatted to a number instead of custom. Put it to zero decimal point. If you are in that cell and right click, you can format from there too. Set column e to a dollar amount and then multiplied out. Copy the formula down so now when you enter the rest of the information, it will calculate automatically and give you a total at the bottom.
Always do a print preview before printing!!!!! This reduces printing errors and wasted paper!
Read and take notes over pages 216-219.
DAY 11
Do Exercise 11 - Save a worksheet as a Webpage and View the Web page.
Staple XL11 to the top of OXL11 and write what it is and what you learned. Always..Name, Date, Hour, & File Name.
