EXCEL BASICS
Mrs.V. JAYAVANI
Assistant Professor
Department of Computer Science
E.M.G. Yadava Women’s College
EXCEL BASICS
This is a row.
Rows are represented
by numbers along the
side of the sheet.
This is a column.
Columns are
represented by
letters across the top
of the sheet.
Excel spreadsheets organize information (text and
numbers) by rows and columns:
EXCEL BASICS
A cell is the intersection
between a column and a
row.
Each cell is named for the
column letter and row
number that intersect to
make it.
DATA ENTRY
There are two ways to enter information into a cell:
1. Type directly into the
cell.
Click on a cell, and type in
the data (numbers or text)
and press Enter.
2. Type into the formula
bar.
Click on a cell, and then
click in the formula bar (the
space next to the ). Now
type the data into the bar
and press Enter.
DATA ENTRY
1. Open Excel (Start  All Programs  MS Office  Excel).
2. Enter the following information into your spreadsheet:
FORMULAS AND FUNCTIONS
◦ Formulas are equations that perform calculations in your
spreadsheet. Formulas always begin with an equals sign
(=). When you enter an equals sign into a cell, you are
basically telling Excel to “calculate this.”
◦ Functions are Excel-defined formulas. They take data you
select and enter, perform calculations on them, and return
value(s).
MORE ON FUNCTIONS
◦ All functions have a common format – the equals sign
followed by the function name followed by the input in
parentheses.
◦ The input for a function can be either:
◦ A set of numbers (e.g., “=AVERAGE(2, 3, 4, 5)”)
◦ This tells Excel to calculate the average of these
numbers.
◦ A reference to cell(s) (e.g., “=AVERAGE(B1:B18) or
“=AVERAGE (B1, B2, B3, B4, B5, B6, B7, B8)”
◦ This tells Excel to calculate the average of the data
that appear in all the cells from B1 to B8.
◦ You can either type these cell references in by hand
or by clicking and dragging with your mouse to select
the cells.
FUNCTIONS FOR DESCRIPTIVE
STATISTICS
=AVERAGE(first cell:last cell): calculates the mean
=MEDIAN(first cell:last cell): calculates the median
=MODE(first cell:last cell): calculates the mode
=VARP(first cell:last cell): calculates the variance
=STDEVP(first cell:last cell): calculates the standard deviation
 You may directly write the functions for these statistics into
cells or the formula bar, OR
 You may use the function wizard ( in the toolbar)
Below are several functions you will need to learn for
this class. Try them out with the practice data set.
FUNCTIONS FOR
DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS
 Your Excel
spreadsheet should
now look like this:
