of several help menus.

You should enter your name, course ID, and date name into the cells at the top of the page.

Each page contains a page footer with a Page # of Page ## as well as time and date to assist in assembly of
multiple pages.

Each worksheet contains the identification of the problem or exercise.

All formatting should have been accomplished to provide satisfactory presentation. See the text for additional
assistance in formatting.

There should be no need to insert columns or rows into the workbooks.

If more than one page is required by the problem, the page breaks are preset.

In general, the yellow highlighted cells are the cells which work and effort should be presented.

Place the proper account title in the cell where the word "Account title" appears on the template.

Place the value in the cell where the word "Value" or "Amount" appears on the template. A formula may be placed
in some of these cells.

Write a formula into cells where the word "Formula" appears. In these cells, an amount calculated can be
entered. An amount can be placed in these cells.

The print area is defined to fit onto 8 1/2" X 11" sheets in portrait or landscape mode as required.

The gray filled cells define the perimeter of the problem and the print area.

The problem is formatted for whole dollars with comma separations (no cents) except where required.

The display may have "Freeze Pane" invoked so column titles remain visible during data entry.

Negative values may be shown as ($400) or -$400.

Consider using "Split" panes to assist in copy and paste of data.

Much of the exercises and problems can have data entered by the "look to" or "=A34" type formula where cell
A34 contains the data to be entered. This precludes typing and data entry errors.
