Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Microsoft Excel is the world's most-popular spreadsheet program--used by schools, offices, and home users. In Excel 2007, Microsoft has completely redesigned the user interface, making it more intuitive and more attractive. But anyone needing to get started quickly without learning all the ins and outs of the software still needs a handy guide. And with Creating Spreadsheets and Charts in Microsoft Excel 2007: Visual QuickProject Guide they've got one. Excel expert Maria Langer walks readers through the new interface and teaches them the tools they will use throughout the project. From there, she helps them create their first workbook, using formulas, adding formatting, adding a visually rich chart. Readers also learn how to effectively print their spreadsheets and charts--something that's much more confusing than it sounds! Along the way all readers will learn how to create attractive, professional, and effective Excel documents. Each book in the Visual QuickProject Guide series now has a companion website featuring sample project files--making it even easier for users to work through each project as they read through the book. Other features on the companion website may include articles on getting the most out of the topic, a database of frequently asked questions, excerpts from the book, general tips, and more.

Book News Annotation:

This simple and clear tutorial walks through the process of creating an Excel workbook that compares actual to budgeted income and expenses for three months, consolidates the results, and illustrates consolidated expenses as a pie chart. The step-by-step instructions with color screenshots demonstrate how to build worksheet files from the ground up, enter data and formulas, and copy formulas to save time.
