  2. 2. What´s Excel UsedFor?<br />Excel is software that lets you create tables, and calculate and analyze data. This type of software is called spreadsheet software. Excel lets you create tables that automatically calculate the totals of numerical values you input, print out tables in neat layouts, and create simple graphs.<br />Excel is a part of &quot;Office&quot;, a suite of products combining several types of software for creating documents, spreadsheets, and presentations, and for managing e-mail. <br />
  3. 3. Spreadsheets<br />A spreadsheet is a table used to store various types of data. The data is arranged in rows and columns to make it easier to store, organize, and analyze the information. A spreadsheet application is a computer program such as Excel, Lotus 1-2-3, Open Office Calc, or Google Spreadsheets. It has a number of built in features and tools, such as functions, formulas, charts, and data analysis tools that make it easier to work with large amounts of data.<br />
  4. 4. Cell and Table<br />A cell is a worksheet square. You can enter text and numbers and formulas. Rows are represented by numbers, and columns are represented by the alphabet. See the figure below.<br />Table is your way of telling excel, “look, all this data from A1 to E25 is related. The row 1 has table headers. Right now we just have 24 rows of data. But I can add more later!”<br />When you make a table you can easily add more rows to it without worrying about updating formula references, formatting options, etc. Excel will take care of everything thus making you a Data God.<br />
  5. 5. Graphsor Charts<br />Charts are visual representations of worksheet data. <br />Pie Charts<br />– are used to show percentages. <br />Column Charts<br />-- are used to show comparisons between items of data. <br />Bar Charts<br />– are similar to column charts, except they run horizontally. <br />Line Charts <br />-- are used to show trends over time. <br />
