  • My personal experience with research paper writing services was highly positive. I sent a request to ⇒ www.HelpWriting.net ⇐ and found a writer within a few minutes. Because I had to move house and I literally didn’t have any time to sit on a computer for many hours every evening. Thankfully, the writer I chose followed my instructions to the letter. I know we can all write essays ourselves. For those in the same situation I was in, I recommend ⇒ www.HelpWriting.net ⇐.

  2. 2. It’s time to turn your spreadsheet up a notch.
  3. 3. Learning functions greatly expands the possibilities of what can be done in Excel.
  4. 4. This presentation introduces you to basic Excel function syntax and usage, and runs through some basic mathematical functions.
  5. 5. By the end of this presentation you can:  calculate sum, max, min, average & count with functions  make calculations quickly with the AutoSum Feature  Use the Insert Function tool to insert any function in Excel
  6. 6. This table shows test results for 10 students. Let’s use mathematical functions to analyse the results.
  7. 7. There are three basic parts to any function: The equals sign tells Excel that it should calculate the cell’s value 1. Equals Sign
  8. 8. The function name tells Excel what task it will be performing. 2. Function Name
  9. 9. The arguments tell Excel what values it should perform the task on. Enter these by typing the address, clicking the cells or using arrow keys. 3. Function Arguments
  10. 10. You can input function arguments using cell or range addresses. This example refers to four cells: B2, C2, D2 & E2. 3. Function Arguments
  11. 11. As you start to type the function, Excel’s AutoComplete makes suggestions:
  12. 12. Let’s use the Count function to see how many tests each student has sat. Count() counts the number of non-empty cells in the range you specify.
  13. 13. I’ve copied down the functions to other students. If you don’t know how to do this, then ignore this. We’ll cover this later.
  14. 14. The Sum() function adds up the arguments you give it.
  15. 15. And Min() calculates the minimum:
  16. 16. Average() calculates… you guessed it… the average of the inputs. Average() ignores blank cells in its calculation.
  17. 17. Functions will update automatically as the inputs change:
  18. 18. We’ve used a colon (:) to use arguments in a continuous range.
  19. 19. To refer to cells/ranges separately, split them up with a comma. For example, the above function does the same thing as before.
  20. 20. You can use any combination of cell references, values, formulas or other functions as arguments in a function:
  21. 21. To insert many formulas at once, highlight all the cells you want, type in the first formula then click CTRL + Enter. Excel
  22. 22. Excel inputs all the formulas based on their respective arguments.
  23. 23. AutoSum & Quick Analysis
  24. 24. The AutoSum tool makes it easy to quickly enter basic functions. Excel guesses the arguments you might want to use.
  25. 25. A new feature is the Quick Analysis tool. Highlight the relevant cells, click the box that appears, then click Totals.
  26. 26. The Insert Function Tool
  27. 27. The Insert Function tool helps find any of Excel’s in-built functions.
  28. 28. The pop-up has all Excel functions grouped by category, and a search tool.
  29. 29. When you choose a formula, Excel helps you input the arguments and gives more information. This is slower, but useful for functions you don’t know well.
  30. 30. Editing and Deleting Functions
  31. 31. Excel shows the results of the calculation in the cell, but shows the underlying function in the formula bar.
  32. 32. To edit the function, double click in the cell, press F2 or click in the formula bar to edit with the cursor.
  33. 33. To delete function(s), select the cell(s) and press Delete. Now the cell can be used as normal for another formula, value, or text.
  34. 34. You can also use the Insert Function tool to edit functions which already exist in a cell.
  35. 35. Functions are very powerful and customizable. You can create custom functions to perform specific tasks. This is a more advanced topic and will be covered later.
