Hi everyone, I am trying to use Excel for the first time for many years. I can do the formulae etc but seem to be missing the basics like how to align the decimal point in a colomb or resize a cell. Can anyone suggest a suitable source of info please this is an old 2000 version and the integrated help is not very good.
Thanks Noldi, that was my starting point, I have been using that and it is very useful.
Thanks Vog, worked fine, so simple if you know, so hard if you dont. I will study your link, strangely I find the formulae and cross referencing relatively easy but fail to get to grips with the basics. Trying to run before I can walk perhaps:)
As a suggestion Ray5776 have you consider getting a book out of the library and working through that? For the absolute beginner can I recommend the Dummies guide this is not a personal comment I hope you realise its what its called - and all the Dummies books are excellent although if you work at it you can soon learn everything in them.
Heres the book I mean click here bit pricey better to borrow from the library I think.
Thanks braindead, I may well buy a copy, I have used the Dummies books before and they are quite good although somewhat limited in their content. I am not keen on libraries, by the time I remember to return the book the fine is usually more than the cost of buying it:)
I have ordered a copy so wont need to keep asking you all. Just one question before I get the book, How do I put a title above line 1 using the font size and style and colour of my choice. Or putting it in line 1 will do if not possible to put it above as a title or header. The best I can phrase it but does not read very well.
Thanks to all for your guidance in getting me started. I am very impressed with Excel,I managed to do the spreadsheet I needed with ease once pointed in the right direction. Waiting for the Dummies book to arrive to see what else it can do. Will tick as resolved now, thanks again.
