Introduction

Microsoft Office Excel 2003 is a spreadsheet program that you can use to track and analyze sales, create budgets, and organize finances—both business and personal. You can also use Excel to manage inventory, setup investment reports or create loan amortizations. Microsoft Excel is a financial tool for performing calculations and other tasks automatically, which allows you to accomplish a variety of business or personal tasks in a fraction of the time it would take using pen and paper.

This chapter introduces you to the terminology and the basic Excel skills you can will in the program. In Excel, files are called workbooks. Each new workbook contains a default setting (which you can change) of three worksheets, which are similar to the pages in an accountant's ledger. You can format the worksheets for your specific project at hand, or you can download pre-made templates from Microsoft's Web site.
