4 2. Calculations To perform a simple calculation in Excel Method Use the function wizard to set up the calculation Comments In the beginners workshop we used the autosum command. The function wizard gives access to the full range of Excel commands. 2.1 The Function Wizard The function wizard gives easy access to Excel s many types of calculation. Click into the blank cell, A12, and add the word Average Click into cell B12 Position the mouse over the fx sign next to the Name box the popup help tells you it is called Insert function Click on that icon A new window pops up. This is the function wizard. Figure 2-1 First we have to tell excel which calculation we want to carry out From the list, select the word Average Figure 2-2 The popup window changes appearance. Excel will guess which values you want to work with, and should have filled in B2:B11 (note how Excel uses : to mean to ). We want to omit the fields calculating totals Click into the Number1 box and change the 11 to an 8 Click OK Excel has now filled in the full function Repeat for C12 4 Birkbeck College IT Services

5 2.2 Repeated Formulae Although we have done so here, it is not necessary to use the function wizard for each value. Excel is clever enough to understand that if you copy and paste a Sum from one column, you want to work with the values in the new column. Click on C12 (the average expenditure for March) Choose Edit Copy (or CTRL+C) Click on D12 (which is blank at present) Choose Edit Paste (or CTRL+V) Figure 2-3 Note as at the top right of Figure 2-3 that when you pasted in the formula, Excel changed it from C2:D8 to D2:E8 2.3 The drag handle The drag handle the box at the bottom right of the active cell can be used to repeat values across several cells. It also works for formulae Click on cell E 12 and then on the drag handle Drag it across until all rows have their averages calculated Excel will automatically update the calculations - change some of the values to test it out. Figure 2-4 Have a look at the syntax of an Excel formula; note the = sign at the beginning, then the function to be performed, and finally, in brackets, the cells containing the values on which to perform it. The list of functions is fairly comprehensive have a look down and see if there are any others that might be of use to you. Birkbeck College IT Services 5

6 3. Customising a Chart To change a chart s appearance Method Double-click different areas of the chart to change those areas appearance Comments Excel charts are extremely customisable clicking most parts will bring up different options, allowing you to change the colour, font, size or even remove a particular series or label. 3.1 Font size The font sizes chosen by Excel may be a little too small relative to the size of the pie chart. Changing them is similar but slightly different to Word, in that you do not select the text in the same way Click on the tab for chart1 at the bottom of the workbook Click on the heading, Expenses for January Use the drop-down menu to change the font to a larger size Repeat for the legend at the side of the chart Note that you could instead have right-clicked on the text and chosen Format Chart Title or Format Legend, as appropriate 3.2 Data series options There are different options for each area of the chart. Double click on the pie-chart itself Doing so brings up the Data Series options. Note that the first tab, patterns, is not very useful in this context, as we have selected all of the data series changing colour here would change all slices of the pie to the new colour. Click the Data Labels tab Check the radio button to Show Category name and percent, as in Figure 3-1 We don t now need the legend, so it can be removed. Either of the methods below will do so Right-click on a blank area of the chart Choose Chart Options Click on the Legend tab Untick the box next to Show Legend Or Click on the Legend Press the DELETE key Figure Birkbeck College IT Services

7 Group vs Individual selection Some areas of the chart are made up of several different items the legend and data labels are made up of different pieces of text, the pie chart of different slices Excel allows you to select items as a group or individually. Click on the pie chart itself That single click has selected the whole of the chart area that is, all of the slices as a group. Selecting individual slices can be a little tricky note that double-clicking in the same place brings up options for that area, rather than selecting that item. Click again on one of the slices, in a different place to your first click You should now have selected just one slice of the pie chart the black squares marking the current selection should be around the edge of the slice. Click on a different slice Note that, now Excel has switched to allowing you to select one slice, each time you click it selects a different individual piece. Double click on a slice This time the options, shown in Figure 3-2, apply only to that data series Change the colour Click OK Change the colour of a different slice in the same way Try dragging a slice out of the pie chart Figure 3-2 Using the techniques above, it is possible to customise the appearance of your chart and give prominence to different information as necessary It is easy to get stuck selecting just individual areas of a chart. To exit this mode of selection, either click somewhere neutral (e.g. on the background) on the chart, or press the ESCAPE key Birkbeck College IT Services 7

9 4.3 Entering Information We now have a very basic spreadsheet for recording expenditure, by date, throughout January. Enter a few pieces of information. In the first, blank, date field, type 20/1 Note that Excel knows this means January. If you click back onto the field, you will see at the top that it has also assumed the year is the current one, as in Figure 4-3 Figure 4-3 Enter some more random dates and figures Excel understands very abbreviated dates for 1 st January 2003, you may enter 1/1/3 You should aim to have a grid something like that in Figure 4-4. You may have an expense for more than one category in each row. The order of the dates does not matter, and do not worry if excel changes the date format Remember that you can select a block of cells, enter one value and then press CTRL + ENTER to add it to all selected cells. Please use at least two dates in your example Figure Date Format Knowing we are entering dates, Excel has tried to apply a format to them. It is not always consistent in doing so see Figure and, in any case, may not be the format you prefer. Excel allows you to use several different formats, without changing the information held in each cell. Click on the column header, A, to select the whole column Choose Format Cells Choose Date on the left-hand side Pick a format on the right Click OK Figure 4-5 Because the whole column was selected, that format will now apply to all dates entered, no matter how many rows are used. Birkbeck College IT Services 9

10 5. Cross-sheet calculations Method To use the details within the sheet of January expenses to supply a total for each category on the overall sheet Use the formula wizard to create the calculation; switch sheets using the tab Comments You may use the autosum icon if you prefer 5.1 Cross-sheet calculations Now that we have January s expenses entered onto a separate sheet, we need to include the total for those values on the overall sheet at present, we have to type the total in by hand. Excel will allow you to enter a calculation on one sheet which relies on values on a different sheet. Click on the tab to return to the Overall sheet, if necessary Click into January s Staffing total, which should be cell B2 Delete the contents We will use the formula wizard to fill in the details we want Figure 5-1 Click on Insert function From the list of functions, select SUM The box that pops up may be dragged out of the way click into a grey area of the box and move it to the right-hand side of the screen Click on the tab called January to move to the list of expenses You could, at this point, select only the cells with data in them. If setting this spreadsheet up as a template, though, it would be better to select the whole column, so that the total would take account of all entries made, whether there are 1 or 100 in a particular month Click on the row header, B Note that Excel fills in the necessary formula, as in Figure 5-2 Click OK Figure 5-2 You will be returned to the overall sheet, with the total filled in. Any changes or additions you make to the Staffing column on the sheet for January will be reflected in the total on the overall sheet. If you want to practice, repeat the above for one or two of the other categories on the overall sheet. 10 Birkbeck College IT Services

11 6. Sorting data Method 6.1 Selecting data To sort data in columns Use sort function to specify which columns to sort by, and in which order Sorting information entered into an Excel spreadsheet is straightforward. You may sort data by using the command on the Data menu, or by using the icons to sort in ascending/descending order respectively. Using the menu command allows you to sort by more than one column at a time. Click on the January tab to move to that worksheet Click on a cell containing a number or a date Choose Data Sort Excel will bring up the sort dialogue box. If it looks like Figure 6-1, with the bottom radio buttons greyedout, click cancel and try selecting cell A2 and choosing Data Sort again sometimes Excel does not pick up the whole of the range of data. Figure Column headings Once Excel has spotted the range of data, it should see that the top row is a header though note the options at the bottom to tell it explicitly. Use the drop-down to pick a column to sort by Choose a second column to sort by Click OK Information may be reordered using Excel s in-built sort function, whether it is numerical or textual. Figure 6-2 Birkbeck College IT Services 11

13 Figure 7-3 Select is greater than with the lefthand drop-down Select a date using the right-hand dropdown menu, as in Figure 7-4 Click OK Excel will show all information relating to dates greater than the one you picked. The custom filter may be used for both text and numbers. Figure Switching off the filter To switch off the filter, select the option from the menu once more Note the tick to show the autofilter is switched on Choose Data Filter Click on Autofilter The drop down menus disappear, and all the data is displayed Figure 7-5 Birkbeck College IT Services 13

14 8. Absolute References Method To perform a VAT calculation based a constant entered in one cell allowing for the easy incorporation of future changes in the rate of VAT Use an absolute reference to the cell containing the VAT rate 8.1 Absolute vs relative We have already seen Excel s use of relative references when copying a formula (e.g.) from row b to row c, that formula is updated to perform calculations on the new row, not the old one. It is sometimes, however, useful to set an absolute reference, rather than a relative one; if calculating based on a constant number to apply a percentage increase, for instance. 8.2 Setting the VAT rate Click on the tab to switch to the Overall sheet In a blank cell, e.g. A15, type VAT rate Click into the cell next to it We will enter the VAT rate in this cell. As you can see from the calculations in row 10, you may calculate 17.5% by multiplying by It is neatest to display the number as a percentage rather than a fraction, but if we use Format-cells to change the format of a cell, Excel will multiply the contents by 100. It is easiest, therefore to format the cell first. Choose Format Cells Choose Percentage from the list of categories on the Number tab Click OK Enter the percentage 17.5 into the cell. Note that Excel adds the trailing % sign 14 Birkbeck College IT Services

15 8.3 Amending the formula The above entry will make no difference to our calculations partly because it is the same rate we have already used, and partly, of course, because our formulas do not refer to that cell. Select the row containing VAT calculations (B10:M10) Delete the contents We will now insert a new calculation, using the function wizard Click on the icon ( ) to start the wizard Choose SUM from the drop-down menu note that even if SUM is already showing, you must click on it We now need to pick the cells containing the numbers to work with Click on the subtotal for this column B9 Enter a multiplication symbol - * Click on the cell holding the VAT rate That formula will work, but we cannot copy it across cells, as Excel will update B15 to C15, D15 and so on. We must make it an absolute reference With the cursor still flashing after B15, press the key F4 Figure 8-1 Excel adds \$ signs before both the column (B) and row (15) reference (you can just type them in, but the shortcut key makes it easier). Click OK Use the drag handle, or copy and paste, to repeat the formula across the row Click on C10 Note that the reference to B15 has stayed in place for all the other formulae, with that to B9 changing to C9 and so on. Change the value in cell B15 All the VAT totals change as do the Total values, as they depend on the results of the VAT calculations. Setting a spreadsheet up in this way makes it simple to allow for future changes Birkbeck College IT Services 15

16 9. Naming cells To give the VAT cell a distinctive name Method Use Excel s Name box to rename a cell Comments Naming a cell or range of cells allows you to refer to it by name rather than cell reference. Doing so is possibly of more use if you plan to type your formulae, but is invaluable if using lookup tables with the VLOOKUP function. 9.1 The Name Box The name box is to the left of the function wizard we have used before, showing the reference of the active cell, as in Figure 9-1 Click on cell B15 (which contains the VAT rate) Click into the name box Type the text, VAT Press RETURN to confirm Figure 9-1 That cell has now been called VAT. You may still refer to it as B15, but may also use the name just defined. 9.2 Editing a formula by hand Our calculations of VAT still use the cell reference Excel does not change them despite our naming cell B15 Click on cell B10 To the right of the name box is the formula bar, showing =SUM(B9*\$B\$15) Click into the formula (or press F2 to edit it on the worksheet) Erase \$B\$15 and type VAT in its place Hit RETURN to confirm your change Note the absence of \$ marks another benefit of naming the cell is that it explicitly marks that cell, so you no longer need to remember how to make a reference absolute 16 Birkbeck College IT Services

17 10. Customising the Toolbar To add useful buttons to the toolbar Method Use the Tools Customise command to access the list of commands Comments This technique may also be used in other Office applications 10.1 Customise You may find that Excel has functions you use often but which are not on the toolbars. It is straightforward to add most functions to whichever toolbar you like. Choose Tools Customise Commands are listed by menu Click on the Insert category on the left Drag the Cells command onto the toolbar The black marker shows where the icon will be placed Click Close when you have finished Figure Toolbars When first installed, Excel (and Word) will usually put both the default toolbars on the same line with the effect that, on all but the biggest screens, some of the icons are hidden. To display both toolbars in full; Look for the grey bar, somewhere near the middle of the toolbar Click and drag the bar down below the other toolbar If you drag the toolbar too far, it will be turned into a floating toolbar, with its own blue title bar drag it up to the top of the screen to make it snap into place again. You may drag toolbars to either side of the screen if you prefer. Should you lose a toolbar, or want an additional one; Choose View Toolbars Click on the toolbar you require The two default toolbars are Standard and Formatting Figure 10-2 Birkbeck College IT Services 17

18 11. Freezing parts of the screen Method 11.1 Freeze panes Fix part of the screen in place so it is always visible when scrolling Click into the spreadsheet and use the Freeze panes command It is often useful to be able to keep part of your spreadsheet visible; keeping the header row in sight as you scroll down, for instance. To do so you need to click below (for rows) and/or to the right (for columns) of the data you want to keep in view Click into cell A2 Choose Window Freeze panes A thin black line has appeared across the top of that row you may not be able to see it if you have a border there already Scroll down the spreadsheet The first row is kept in place. You may also achieve the same effect by first choosing Window Split, and then Window Freeze panes. The advantage is that the split lines added may be moved around the worksheet. The disadvantage is that you will need to choose Window Unfreeze panes and Window Remove split to remove the marker lines. 12. Changing Default Chart Settings Method To change the chart that Excel selects when the chart wizard is started Use the autosum icon to create the calculation, switching sheets using the tab 12.1 Default chart settings As you may have noticed, Excel automatically starts with a Clustered Column chart. While working through the wizard and changing options does not take long, you will probably find that you use one type of graph more than others. It is possible to set options so they take effect by default, saving you time. First we need to create a chart, formatted as we want it. We will create a pie chart to compare values within one category Select the data in one row, as in Figure Birkbeck College IT Services

19 Figure 12-1 Click the chart wizard button Choose a 3-d pie, as in Figure 12-2 Figure 12-2 Click Next Click Next to go to step 3 Set the legend to appear on the left On the data labels tab, choose Show label and percent Click Next Figure 12-3 Insert the chart as a new sheet, and give that sheet its own name Click Finish 12.2 Selecting a chart as the default Now that we have formatted and inserted a chart as we want it, we need to tell Excel to use this type of chart in the future. Right-click in a clear area of the chart From the popup menu, choose Chart type Click on the Custom Types tab Click on the Set as default chart button at the bottom left The dialogue box in Figure 12-5 will appear click Yes Figure 12-4 Figure 12-5 You will now be asked to give your chart-type a name you should be sure it will make sense to you in the future, as you might want to set up different custom formats Birkbeck College IT Services 19

20 Click OK You may either OK or cancel the chart type window it does not matter, as you have already set the default 12.3 Custom vs Standard types of chart You may have noticed that there is a set as default chart option on the standard types tab (see Figure 12-4). Whilst you can set the default chart from here, it will only change the type of chart; it will not preserve any other formatting changes you have made. The benefits of setting a different default chart type should be that you can simply select data, click the chart wizard and then click Finish rather than go through each step separately, as your legend, data series options etc will be set for you. If you find yourself producing different charts each time, setting a new default may not help, though you might usefully be able to set font size and so on. Selecting data and then pressing F11 will immediately insert a chart based on your default settings 20 Document Birkbeck Version College 6 January IT Services 2008
