2 Starting Excel 1. Log into your PC. 2. Click on the Microsoft Office Excel icon on your desktop or on the Quick Launch bar. 3. The Microsoft Excel application will open in its own window. The Ribbon The Formula Bar The Name Box The Sheet Tabs Excel Window Properties The Microsoft Excel window has many of the same attributes as other windows in the Microsoft Office Suite. The table below lists some of Excel s features and provides a brief description of each one. Attribute The Ribbon The Formula Bar The Name Box Column Headings Row Headings The Sheet Tabs Description A device that presents Excel s commands organized into a set of tabs. The Ribbon has replaced the traditional menus and toolbars. Located immediately underneath the Ribbon, it displays the constant value or formula used in an active cell. The box at the left end of the Formula bar that identifies the selected cell, chart item or drawing object. The lettered gray areas at the top of each column. The numbered gray areas to the left of each row. The tabs near the bottom of the workbook window that display the name of the various worksheets. 2

3 The Ribbon The Ribbon is new to Office It replaces the traditional menu bars, toolbars, and some task panes. The Ribbon is made up of a series of tabs that contain commands, icons and galleries. Default Tabs There are seven default tabs on the Ribbon. Each tab displays icons for the commands that are most relevant for each of the task areas in the applications. For example, the Home tab provides access to the Excel s most basic commands, such as cutting, copying, pasting and formatting. The Normal Tab Configuration Contextual Tabs Some tabs are contextual, which means that they are only visible when you are working with particular objects. Contextual tabs only appear when the particular objects are active (you are working on them and they are selected) and are usually displayed on the right-hand side of the Ribbon. In the example below, a chart has been added to a worksheet. So, the Chart Tools tabs, which are contextual, have appeared. They will disappear once the chart is deselected. The Contextual Chart Tools tabs 3

4 Dialog Box Launchers Dialog boxes still exist in Office You access them from the Ribbon. Each tab contains separate sections of commands and some of these sections have Dialog Box Launcher icons, located in the lower right-hand corner of the section. In the example below, clicking on the Number section s dialog box launcher will display the Numbers tab of the Format Cells dialog A Dialog Box Launcher Every tab section that offers a dialog box will have a Dialog Box Launcher icon. 4

5 Galleries Galleries are sets of thumbnail graphics that represent various formatting options. Galleries are displayed by clicking on icons located within the Ribbon. Once displayed, users can simply "pick and click" from a gallery to achieve the desired formatting effect. The Column Chart icon s Gallery Minimizing the Ribbon If you want more space on the screen, you can minimize the Ribbon. To do so, double-click on any tab. Once you have minimized the ribbon, you will just see the tab names. To use the Ribbon while it is minimized, click on the tab you want to use. All of that tab s commands will appear. Select the command that you want to use. After selecting the command, the Ribbon will return to its minimized state. To restore the Ribbon to its full size, double-click on any tab. Double-clicking on tabs serves as a toggle for minimizing and maximizing the ribbon. 5

6 The Microsoft Office Button Clicking on the Microsoft Office Button displays the commands that allow you to do things to your workbook, such as save it, print it, send it, and close it. It also allows you to access the Excel Options dialog. The Microsoft Office Button The Microsoft Office Button Menu 6

To create another new workbook, click on the Microsoft Office Button and then click on the New option. 2. The New dialog will open. 3. Double-click on the Blank Workbook icon. 4.

15 Selecting Cells In order to add anything to your workbook, you need to select cells. Selected cells have a dark line around them. There are many ways to select cells. The table below lists some of them. Action Click on a cell Click on a Column Heading Click on a Row Heading Shift-click Drag Click on the Select All button Selection Selects that cell Selects that entire column Selects that entire row Selects the cells between the original mouse click and where you placed the cursor after holding down the Shift key Selects the cells between the original mouse click and where you let go after dragging the cursor. Selects all of the cells within a worksheet. Entering Data To enter data in a worksheet, follow the instructions below. 1. Select the cell in which you want to enter your data. 2. Start typing your data. 3. Notice that your data appears in the Formula bar as you type. Data within the formula bar 4. When you have finished entering the data, press the Enter key, the Tab key, one of the Arrow keys or click on the Enter Formula icon (the checkmark in the Formula bar). 5. The data displayed in the Formula bar will be entered into the selected cell on your worksheet. Note 1: You must press the Enter, Tab or an Arrow key or click on the Enter Formula icon to validate your data entry. Otherwise, Excel will not recognize the data that you are trying to enter in a cell. Note 2: By default, text is always left-aligned and numbers are always right-aligned. Note 3: Excel should automatically increase the width of the cell to accommodate your data. However, you can always increase the width of the column manually by dragging the boundary on the right side of the column heading. 15

16 Editing and Deleting Data If you click on a cell that contains data and start typing, the original data will be deleted and what you are typing will take its place. This is Window s Typing Replaces Selection feature. When making edits to single words and numbers, this is often the easiest method. There are two ways to edit data in a cell without deleting it. 1. You can double-click in the cell that contains your data and move your cursor to where you want to make the change. -or- 2. You can edit in the formula bar. a. Click once in the cell that contains the data you want to edit. b. The cell contents will appear in the formula bar. c. Place your cursor where you want to make the change within the formula bar. d. Make your changes. To delete data, simply select the cell that contains the data you want to delete and press the Delete key on your keyboard. 16

17 Basic Formatting After selecting cells, you can format them using the icons available on the Home tab. Those icons allow you to change the cell s font type, size, color, and add bold, italicized or underlined formatting. You can also determine how you would like your numbers to appear, i.e., with dollar signs, as percents, with commas, or with decimal points. To format cells follow the instructions below. 1. Select the cells you would like to format. 2. The selected cell(s) will appear within a dark frame. 3. Use the appropriate icons on the Home tab to format the cells. Note: You MUST select your cells before you can format them. Otherwise, the formatting commands will not work. Some commonly used formatting icons are listed below. Click on the B icon to bold the selected cells. Click on the I icon to italicize the selected cells. Click on the U icon to underline the selected cells. Click on the Accounting Number Format icon to apply dollar signs to selected cells. Click on the Percent Style icon to apply percentage signs to selected cells. Click on the Comma Style icon to apply commas to selected cells. Click on the Increase Decimal or Decrease Decimal icon to add or remove decimal points. 17

18 AutoFitting Normally, Excel automatically adjusts the width of a column to fit the column s widest entry. However, every once and a while, when a cell contains a number that is wider than it is, Excel will display a series of pound signs (####) instead of the number. This indicates that the column is too narrow. You can easily readjust the width of the column to fit the cell value using the Autofit function. 1. Move the mouse to the right side of the cell s column header (the gray area that lists the column letters). For example, if the cell s address is B4, then move the mouse to the column header between column B and C. 2. The cursor will become a double-headed arrow. The double-headed arrow 3. With the double-headed arrow between the two column headers, double-click. 4. The column to the left of the double-headed arrow will automatically increase in width to accommodate the longest cell value in that column Basic Sorting You can sort columns of data alphabetically or numerically, either in ascending or descending order, with a click of the mouse. To do so, follow the instructions below. 1. Enter your data in a column. 2. Select the cells containing the data to be sorted. 3. Go to the Home tab. 4. Click on the Sort and Filter icon. 5. Click on the Sort A to Z option for sorting in ascending alphabetical or numerical order. 6. Click on the Sort Z to A option for sorting in descending alphabetical or numerical order. 7. The data will be sorted accordingly. 18

19 Cutting & Copying Data You can move text in your workbook by either cutting or copying. Cutting removes the selected data from one location to another. Copying moves the selected data to a new location, but also leaves a copy of the data in its original position. Cutting Data 1. Select the cells that contain the information you want to move. 2. Press the Ctrl and the X keys on your keyboard at the same time. 3. Animated lines will surround the cell(s) containing the data. 4. Move the cursor to the desired new location and click once. 5. Press the Ctrl and the V keys on your keyboard at the same time. 6. Your data will reappear at the new location. Copying Data 1. Select the cells that contain the information you want to copy. 2. Press the Ctrl and the C keys on your keyboard at the same time. 3. Animated lines will surround the cell(s) containing the data. 4. Move the cursor to the desired new location and click once. 5. Press the Ctrl and the V keys on your keyboard at the same time. 6. Your data will reappear at the new location. 7. The animated lines will still surround the original cell(s). 8. Press once on the Esc key on your keyboard to make the animated lines disappear. Note: You can copy the selected data over and over again, until you press the Esc key on your keyboard to make the animated lines disappear. 19

20 Basic Mathematical Operations There will be times when you want to perform basic mathematical operations such as addition, subtraction, multiplication or division. To do so, you need to use the = sign and one of the arithmetic operators displayed in the table below. Arithmetic Operator Meaning Example + (Plus sign) Addition =3+3 (Minus sign) Subtraction =3 1 * (Asterisk) Multiplication =3*3 / (Forward slash) Division =3/3 1. Open your Microsoft Excel workbook. 2. Select the cell in which you want to see your mathematical result. 3. Type the = sign. 4. Type the arithmetic operation. 5. Accept the entry. 6. The result of your mathematical operation will be displayed in the originally selected cell. Edit your mathematical operation from within the Formula Bar. 7. You can view and edit your mathematical operation from within the Formula Bar. 20

21 The AutoSum Feature The AutoSum feature is a great tool! It lets you add numbers automatically. It will suggest the range of cells to be added. If the suggested range is incorrect, select the cells that contain the information you want to add and accept the entry. 1. Open your Microsoft Excel workbook. 2. Type your data into a range of cells (see the example in the F Column in the illustration below). 3. Select the cell in which you want to see the auto sum. 4. Click on the AutoSum icon on the Home tab. 5. Animated lines will surround a suggested range of cells. The animated lines surrounding a suggested range of cells The selected cell in which I want the auto sum to appear (C11) 6. If the range is correct, accept the entry. 7. The auto sum will appear in the originally selected cell. 8. If the range is not correct, select a new range of cells. 9. Accept that entry. 10. The calculated sum will appear in the originally selected cell. The completed auto sum Note: The cell that you choose to contain the outcome of a formula (including AutoSum) cannot be included in the formula itself. If it is, you will receive a Circular Reference error that will prevent Excel from properly calculating your formula. The best way to deal with this error is to delete the offending formula and start afresh. 21

22 Saving Options There are various saving options in Excel To get to them, you need to click on the Microsoft Office Button and hold your cursor over the Save As option. Choose the desired option and the Save As dialog will appear, with the appropriate file type listed in the Save As field. Browse to the desired folder, type a name and click on the Save button. Note: Click on the upward pointing arrow to the right of the Folders option to browse to the network drives. 22

23 Printing To print your workbook, click on the Microsoft Office Button, hold your cursor over the Print option, and click on the Print icon. The Print dialog will appear. Click on its Print button. Note: A much easier way to print workbook is to add the Print icon to the Quick Access Toolbar. Closing a Workbook 1. To close a workbook, but remain within the Microsoft Excel application, click on the Close Window icon located in the upper right-hand corner of the Excel window. 2. If you have made any changes to your workbook and have not saved it, a Microsoft Excel warning dialog will appear, asking if you want to save the changes. 3. If you want to save your changes, click on the Yes button. 4. If you do not want to save your changes, click on the No button. 5. If you do not want to close your workbook, click on the Cancel button. Note: There can be no active cells when you are trying to close a workbook, as the Close command will not function if there are. So make sure that you have accepted all entries, that all autosums are complete, and that there are no animated lines in your workbook. Exiting Microsoft Excel 1. To close the Microsoft Excel application, click on the red Close icon located in the upper right-hand corner of the Excel window. 2. If you have made any changes to a workbook and have not saved it, a Microsoft Excel warning dialog will appear, asking if you want to save the changes. 3. Click on the appropriate button. 4. The workbook window and the Microsoft Excel application will close. 23
