Successful? Projects in Excel is designed to help students on an Advanced Level?or ABCE Computing or Information and Communications Technology course to complete a project using Microsoft Excel 2002?or an earlier version. It will also be useful to students on a wide range of other courses requiring an in-depth knowledge of spreadsheets. It assumes no previous knowledge of Excel and takes the reader from basics such as entering, editing and formatting text, numbers and formulae through to advanced features such as ‘What if’ scenarios, pivot tables, macros and customised toolbars. A wide range of examples is used to illustrate the different facilities of Excel, and a sample project shows students how to tackle and document each stage of project work.
