Excel in Practice

Creating consistency between data sources as well as visual consistency is essential to the effective distribution and presentation of data in any business. Providing a similar look and feel to your documents, worksheets, and presentations helps your audience see the connection between them. In addition, ensuring that the source of the data is updated in a timely fashion (and updated to all relevant files) helps the audience feel confident in the data's accuracy and reliability.
