Chapter 1


What is a Spreadsheet…………………………

o    Open Microsoft Excel

Either double click on the short cut which looks like this.


Or you can open it from the start button on the bottom left hand side of the screen.


o    When you open Excel it will look like this.


o    The main area is called the Worksheet. You can see it has been divided into a grid with columns and rows. Each box is called a Cell.

o    The rows go across the worksheet and are labelled as numbers. The columns are vertical and are labelled as letters.

o    The active cell is the one highlighted and is called A1, as it is in column A and in row 1.


o    You can see the name of the active cell in the white box above the


o    The workbook contains blank worksheets named Sheet 1, Sheet 2, Sheet 3 etc. You can see the name of these on the tabs at the bottom of your worksheet.


o    Use your left button on your mouse to click in any other cell.

o    Use the arrow keys to go up, down, left, or right.


o    Use the Page Up or Page Down keys (notice the row numbers on the left hand side).

Entering Data

Suppose we are going to make a list of data in Excel with the number of pens your friends have on their desk. Your job is to make a text list of their names and the number of pens each person has. The cell reference is the name of each cell.

o    Click in Cell A1 (cell reference)

o    Type the name John(or your own name)

o    Press the right arrow key.

o    Type the number 8 in cell B1

o    Press Enter, Excel will move the active cell down to the one under B2.

o    Copy the Rest of the list. If you make a mistake we will correct them after the rest of the list is done.


Editing Data

o    Click on the cell containing the Name Simon. You will see that the name appears in the formula bar. The formula bar is above the worksheet and you can see where the text shows Simon.


o    Click in the formula bar


o    Use the Backspace key to delete the Name Simon. You will see that the text in cell A3 will change at the same time.


o    Type Stephen in the formula bar


o    Another way to change text in a cell is to type over it, click in the cell reference A6.


o    Type Tasha


o    Press Enter


Deleting the contents of a cell

To delete the contents of a cell, click on the cell and press the Delete key on the keyboard.

o    Delete the name Ali


o    It will now look like this.


Inserting and deleting rows and columns

We can delete the whole row 2 so that no gap is left.

o    Left click on the row heading 2.


o    Right click on the number 2 heading for the row. Select Delete from the menu which appears.


The row for Stephen moves up to Row 2.


Now you are going to add a heading at the top of the worksheet. We need to insert a row.

o    Right Click in the row header for row 1


o    Select Insert from the menu and left click on the mouse.


o    Type Pens on Desk in cell A1. Press Enter.


Insert another blank line below the title.

o    Right click on Row 2 header. Select insert.



Saving your work

If you want to keep your work so that you can look at it again or change it in the future, you need to save it.

o    Click File on the tabs at the top of the window.


o    Click on Save.


o    Excel gives your workbook the default name . The name appears in the File name box.

o    Find a location where you are happy to save the file.

o    Type a new name PensOnDesk


Microsoft will add an extension to the name you choose. This shows that the file is a spreadsheet created using Microsoft Excel.

o    Click on the save button. This saves the document and closes the save window.


o    Close your workbook by selecting the File tab.


o    Click on Close.

Chapter 2

The really good thing about Excel is when you start to use formulae. Using a formula Excel will make calculations for you automatically. To learn how to use formula in Excel, we will do a page of sums. We use these symbols in Excel.


Create a worksheet to do calculations

o    Open a new Excel work book.

o    Type ADD in cell A1, SUBTRACT in cell C1, DIVIDE in cel E1, Multiply in cell G1.


o    Type all the numbers shown in te correct cells.


Selecting Cells to format

In order to change the look of certain cells by making the grid lines bold or to change the font, you must select the cells.

o        To make a change to the whole workbook select the tope left header.


o        To make a change to a whole column select the header for the column.


o        To make a change to a whole row, select the row header.


o        Select cel A1 and hold down the left mouse button.


o        Drag the mouse across cells A1 to G1


o        Press the Bold button on the home tab to show the menu ribbon to change the font.


o        Select the Cell A4 and hold down Ctrl, while you have Ctrl held down select C4, E4 and G4.


o        Select the small arrow next to the border button to show a small drop down menu.


o        Select option to have a top and thick bottom border


This gives a neat finish to the area for your calucations.


o        Now we are going to Save our Workbook. Call the file Formula.


o        Click on Save.

Entering the Formula

We are going to use the cell references.

o    Click in cell A4

o    Type an equals sign = to tell Excel that you are going to use a calculation/formula


o    Then type a2+a3 so that the formula looks like this;


o    Press Enter and the answer will appear

o    In cell C4 type =c2-c3 and press enter


o    In cell E4 type =e2/e3 and press enter


o    In cell G4 type =g2*g3 and press enter


o    Your worksheet will now look like this;



Automatic re-calculation

The best main thing about spreadsheet is that once you have entered the formula, yu can change the contents of the other cells and answers will still be right.

o    Change cell A2 to 175


o    Delete the contents of cells c2 and c3. Select each cell and press the delete key. Now what is the answer in cell C4?


o    What is 60 divided by 2? Use your spreadsheet to find out.


o    What is 1.85 x 2.99? Type 1.85 into cell G2 and 2.99 into cell G3


Entering formula by pointing

You use the mouse to point to the cells in the formula instead of typing in a formula.

o    Change the numbers on the worksheet to be like this


Delete the formula in Row 4.

o    Click in cell A4 and press delete. o       Click in cell C4 and press delete. o       Click in cell E4 and press delete.

o    Click in cell G4 and press delete.

o    In cell A4 type = and then click the mouse  in cell A2.


o    Type + and the click the mouse in cell A3.


o    Press Enter

o    Try to enter the other formula in the same way

o    When you have finished save your workbook again.


Chapter 3

Columns of Data

Now you are going to find out how to control the way numbers are displayed, and make Excel automatically calculate columns totals.

You are going to create a spread to hold data about the height, weight and foot size of people in a group.

o    Open a new Excel workbook. Select File and the click on New.


o    Select Blank workbook and click on Create.

o    Type the word Measurements in cell A1. It will overflow the cell, but that’s OK.

o    Press Enter

o    Select Cell A1 again and make it bold by clicking the BOLD button on Font section of the home tab.


o    Position the pointer with your mouse so that it is on the line between column headers A and B. The pointer will change to a double-headed arrow.


o    Use the left mouse button and hold it down while you drag to the right. The column will widen. Make it wide enough to fit the heading.


o    Now type the other headings in the top row, use your own name. Make up a group name for the title in C1.


o    Highlight the whole row 1


o    Click on the bold button on the home tab.

o    Now we are going to widen the column a second way. Position the pointer between the column headers F and G containing your name.

o    Double click. The column automatically widens so that the name will fit the cell.


o    Save your workbook, call it Measurements.



o    Fill in the rest of your workbook like this


o    You will need to make the columns wider to fit the headings. Use the double click on the header to make the column width change automatically.


Notice that the cells that have numbers are on the right of the cell, this is called right justified. The text you enter is always left justified.

The measurements would look much easier to read if they were all shown to 1 decimal place. Excel will ignore if you enter 127.0 and display 127.

o    Select the cells B4 to D17 by clicking in B4 and holding down your left mouse button and dragging down to D17


o    Click on the home tab and look for the section called number.


o    Select the Increase decimal button


It will now look like this.


o    Now click on the decrease decimal button. To show the numbers to 1 decimal place.


o    Now your work book should look like this.


o    Save your workbook again.

Try holding down Ctrl and the letter S.


Adding a column of numbers together

We want to add up the heights of everyone in the group and put the total in cell B11. To do this we use the Autosum button.

The sign ? (pronounced Sigma) on the Autosum button is the Greek letter S. Greek letters are used a lot in maths.  ? is the Greek letter p. The area of a circle  = ?r²

o    Click in cell B11 to make it the active cell.

o    Click on the formula tab


o    Click on the Autosum button o       Excel will guess which cells you want to sum. Your screen will look like the one below.


o    Press Enter. You will now see the answer.

o    Now do the same in cell C11 to find out the total weight.


o    Now do the same in cell D11.


This time Excell thinks you want to find the sum total of the cells to the left.

o    Select cells D4 to D9 by click in D4 and dragging your mouse down to D9.


o    Press Enter and your answer will apear.

o    Save your worksheet

Chapter 4


o   Make sure you have the Measurements spreadsheet open you created in the last chapter.


The cell highlighted is called B11. You can see the formula in the formula bar =SUM(B4:B10). You are going to try to enter the formula in another way.

o   Click in cell B11

o   Press the delete key.

o   Type =sum(

o   Now click in cell B4 and hold the left mouse button down while you drag down to cell B10.

o   Type ) to finish the formula.

o   Press Enter, Click in cell B11 again and the formula You will see now why we changed this formula.

The AVERAGE function

o    Click in cell B13

o    Type =average(

o    Click in cell B4 and drag down to cell B1.


o    Type ) to finish the formula

o    Press Enter. The answer will now appear


o    In cell C13 find the average weight in the same way.

o    In cell D13 find the average foot length.


MAX and MIN functions

o       Click on cell B15

o       Type =max( in the cell

o       Click in cell B4 and drag down to cell B10.

o       Type ) to finish the formula.


o       Press Enter. The Answer will appear.

o       Complete the other formulas in row 15.


 o       Use the Min function to find the minimums.


What if?

What if you needed to add another person to your list? The first thing we would need to do would be to add another row.

o       Click in the row header for row 10 with the right click of the mouse.


o       In the menu that appears select insert. This will create a new row.

o       In this new row add these details David Rice for the name and 122 for the height.

You will notice that the max, min and average formula now has a green corner. This is because these formulas only include the cells B4 to B9 and does not include B10.


Excel is asking if you need to change the formula and the data has changed, which we do.

o       Alter the formula in the formula bar to include cell B14 for average.


o       Alter the formula in the formula bar to include cell C14 and D14 for weight and foot length.

o       Now add 60 for his weight and 24cm for his foot length.

o       You will need to change the formulas to include row 10.

o       Your spreadsheet should not look like this.


o       Please check your formulas in the formula bar, they should look like this.


o       Save your spreadsheet
