Anybody who happens to be under the impression that learning Microsoft Excel 2007 is very difficult, would be reassured to know that even a child, who knows a little bit of calculation can soon become a Microsoft Excel addict. If you know how to calculate using a paper and pencil, you will know how easy it is to calculate upon a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet.
The moment you start up a Microsoft Excel worksheet, by going to start -- all programs -- Microsoft Office 2007 -- Microsoft Excel 2007, and click on the icon, there you are. You're on your way to learning about this fascinating program. The moment you start up the worksheet, you're going to see a toolbar, which is just like the one which is present upon an ordinary Microsoft office document.
All the regular applications which happened to be part of the functions of Windows can be utilized by using this toolbar, like opening up new documents and files and saving them an even more. There happens to be a quick access bar on the right hand of the office logo button, which has a couple of items displayed upon it. The moment you click any of these buttons, you get a drop-down menu. You can add the buttons of your choice by right clicking upon this toolbar and clicking the customize button to display the dialog box for all the options in Excel.
This Excel spreadsheet is the electronic equivalent of paper and pencil, and you can see all your data organized in front of your eyes into columns and rows and make precise mathematical calculations and formulations to get statistical results easily.
Now let us come to the basics of entry numbers and text into the spreadsheets. Now if you happen to be a novice upon the computer like I, the moment you are confronted with a spreadsheet, you wonder what to do with it.
A simple way is to make sure that my resolution is low so that the image size and the text size is larger. That is done by going to the desktop and clicking upon it. Properties -- settings -- 800 x 600 resolution can make the size of the information larger even though there is not as much information displayed upon the computer monitor.
The Microsoft icon button at the extreme left happens to have all the extras which are not displayed upon your screen. Next this button is the quick access toolbar and then a title bar, which has the name of the open document, book 1.
Now every single worksheet is ready with empty cells in rows and columns, just waiting to be filled in. You can go from one column to another with the help of your arrow keys. You can experiment by pressing all the arrow keys, the tab keys, and even the shift+ tab key, page up, page down and control home to see your cursor hopping from one cell or one page to another.
