Creating database


Presenter: Jolanta Soltis

When to use excel
When to use Excel

  • Use Excel when you:

    • Require a flat or non-relational view of your data (you do not need a relational database with multiple tables). This is especially true if that data is mostly numeric—for example, if you want to maintain a financial budget for a given year.

    • Want to run primarily calculations and statistical comparisons on your data — for example, if you want to show a cost/benefit analysis in your company's budget.

    • Know your dataset is manageable in size (no more than 15,000 rows).

What characterizes an excel list
What characterizes an Excel List?

  • row = record

  • column = field

  • header row = 1st row; formatted differently

  • no blank rows or columns in the data (though blank cells within records are OK)

  • formulas to calculate data items are OK

Automatically number rows
Automatically number rows

  • Microsoft Excel does not provide a button to automatically number data.

  • You can easily add sequential numbers to rows of data by filling a column with a series of numbers.

    Note: These numbers are not automatically updated when you add, move, or remove rows. You can manually update the sequential numbering by selecting two numbers that are in the right sequence, and then dragging the fill handle to the end of the numbered range.

Fill a column with a series of numbers
Fill a column with a series of numbers

  • Select the first cell in the range that you want to fill.

  • Type the starting value for the series.

  • Type a value in the next cell to establish a pattern. For example, if you want the series 1, 2, 3, 4, 5..., type 1 and 2 in the first two cells. If you want the series 2, 4, 6, 8..., type 2 and 4.

  • Select the cells that contain the starting values.

  • Drag the fill handle (fill handle: The small black square in the lower-right corner of the selection. When you point to the fill handle, the pointer changes to a black cross.) across the range that you want to fill.

  • To fill in increasing order, drag down or to the right. To fill in decreasing order, drag up or to the left.
