Chapter 11

Creating Workbooks and Entering Data

In this chapter, I'll show you how to get up and running with Excel.

We'll start with creating a new workbook—either a blank one or one based on a template or an existing workbook—and saving it. We'll then examine the components of the Excel user interface and how you navigate them, and go through the various ways you can to enter data in your worksheets. We'll then move on to inserting, renaming, deleting, and rearranging worksheets, and setting them up so that you can see your data easily. Finally, I'll show you how to share your workbooks with others, track changes in your workbooks, and review and integrate changes to produce a final version of a workbook.
