Part III: Computing with Excel 2002 > Excel 2002 Workbooks

Hour 7. Excel 2002 Workbooks

This hour introduces you to Excel 2002, Microsoft's spreadsheet program. Microsoft Excel is to numbers what Word is to text; Excel has been called a word processor for numbers. With Excel, you can create numerically based proposals, business plans, business forms, accounting worksheets, and virtually any other document that contains calculated numbers.

If you are new to electronic worksheets, you will probably have to take more time to learn Excel's environment than you had to learn Word's. Excel starts with a grid of cells in which you place information. This hour takes things slowly to acquaint you with Excel and explains the background necessary for understanding how an Excel working area operates.

The highlights of this hour include the following:

  • What worksheets and workbooks are

  • How to enter various kinds of Excel data

  • How to navigate in an Excel worksheet
