Excel Spreadsheets

Microsoft Excel is a computer program that allows the user to perform a variety of calculations that can be useful in basic home budgeting or for calculations required if you were the treasurer for a community group, church, or if you were monitoring your own investments.

The program uses a grid of cells in rows and columns that are each able to hold information that can be used in a variety of ways. Learn how to develop a spreadsheet for your home budget and how to enter formulas that automatically perform various mathematical functions. Then you can turn those numbers into an easily viewed graph. No experience is necessary as we will start off with the basics.
