Formulas and Functions 1

Microsoft Office 2010

Excel Seminar

Xander Jackson

• The Ribbon

• Laid out with multiple Tabs

• File, Home, Insert, Page Layout, Formulas, Data, Review, View

• Each tab has multiple Groups of Functions

• Example: Home Tab

• Groups: Clipboard, Font, Alignment, Number, Styles, Cells, Editing

• Basics in the Sigma on Home and Functions tab

• Sum

• Avg

• Count

• Max

• Min

• More

• Uses

• SUM: totals a row/column

• Avg: averages selection

• Count: counts the number of entries in a selection

• Max & Min: returns the Max or Min value from selection

• More: opens the insert function wizard

In this exercise we will download and edit an existing spreadsheet. The goal of this exercise is to get familiar working in the Microsoft Office 2010: Excel environment. This spreadsheet is a simple budget of household expenses. We will use the most common functions:

Sum, Avg, Min, Max

We will also write a custom formula while using some of the nifty built-in features of Excel. Finally, we will add a pie-chart based on our custom formula.

• Financial

• Logical

• Text

• Date & Time

• Lookup & Reference

• Math & Trig

• More

• We will only use a few of these for the next example

• Unless you are Kim Peak, you would need this to find days of the week in other years

• Great for setting work schedules

• Excel has trouble with dates before 1900

• Networkdays: the number of standard work days between two dates

• Now: the time NOW!

• Date: gives the date in format

• eDate: gives the date in Excel serial format

• Used for large blocks of text

• Same logical tests as computer programming

• Has functions to deal with funny formatting

• Concatenate

• Search

• Find

• Replace

• Substitute

• Dollar

• Value

• The series of logical mathematic tests

• If, Not, And, Or, True, IfError, False

• Very useful in creating statements that check for values

• Used in making an automatic grading structure

• And: true if both statements true

• Or: true if both statements are not false

• Not: reverses value

• If: checks for value and returns input value

• IfError: returns input if the statement errors

• True/False: returns that

• Used to find data in large spreadsheets

• Has indexing and database options for organizing data, and useful attributes for Visual Basic coding
