Key Points

  • Excel is a full-featured program that you can use to do simple or complex math operations.

  • Excel toolbars and menus are similar to those found in other Office XP applications; however, you’ll also find new tools specifically designed for working with cell values and formulas.

  • A workbook is a collection of worksheets in Excel. A worksheet is the page on which you perform mathematical operations. A cell is the intersection of a column and row and stores one data value.

  • You add data to the worksheet—including number, text, date, and time values—by clicking a cell and typing the information.

  • You can use Excel’s AutoFill feature to fill data cells quickly.

  • You can use a number of shortcut keys to move around the worksheet window.

  • A range is a selected group of cells in a worksheet. You can name ranges that you work with regularly to find and reference them more easily.

  • Excel includes a number of preset functions you can include in formulas to execute common operations. Excel provides a number of features to help you find the right function and ensure that your formulas are correct.

  • Excel allows you to save your worksheets in a number of different file formats, including Web pages, XML Spreadsheets, text files, and files supported by other popular spreadsheet and database programs.
