Printing
  "Set Print Area"
  Since each sheet is thousands of rows deep you do not want to print the entire sheet. "Set Print Area" can be
  used to print a specific area, and avoid printing thousands of blank rows.
  To "Set Print Area"
  1. Highlight the area you want to print.
  2. Click on the "File" menu, and drag down to "Print Area."
  3. Select "Set Print Area."
  Page Setup
  Under the "Page Setup" feature you can force the set area to print on one page. Caution: It will
  automatically shrink the text to fit in the Set Print Area. If you select too large an area the text will be too
  1. Click on the "File" menu, then drag down to "Page Setup."
  2. Select "Fit To:" to force the selected area to fit on 1 page.
  Note: Most sheets have already been formatted to print a selected area, however you may change them
  by using the "Set Print Area" feature.
Writing Formulas: A few basics…
  1. Click on the cell where you want the answer to the equation to appear.
  2. Type an equals sign "=" start any formula. (In other words, the cell will "equal" whatever you program it to be.
  3. Refer to the Excel "Help" menu for more information on writing formulas.
  Note: You will need to be able to write your own formulas to set up your specific efficiency factors.
Creating a Paper Record Book
  1. Complete the "Start Here" sheet.
  2. Customize the category headings on the income and expense sheets.
  3. Enter the "Beginning Inventory" values.
  4. Name and save the file for use at the end of the record year.
  5. Print the needed pages if you wish to maintain the record on paper.
  6. At the end of the year, you may want to enter all transfer all entries to the computer version or just the totals.
  Note: Transferring the values, to the computer version, will allow you to use the computer calculation features
  to finalize the records.
Password Protected
  1. Many sections of the record system are protected to prevent you from accidentally deleting formulas.
  2. However, since this system is designed to be customized you are allowed to "unprotect" the sheets.
  The password is: ffa
  Caution: Users with limited knowledge of Excel may want to avoid the use of this feature.
Computer Common Sense -- Saving Files & Resaving Files
  NEVER, NEVER, NEVER use a floppy diskette to maintain the original copy of your records.
  1. Because floppy diskettes fail frequently, be sure to save your "original" version on a CD-ROM and/or harddrive.
  2. Change your file names frequently.
      For Example: Jan2003SAE1.xls…Jan2003SAE2.xls…Jan2003SAE3.xls…etc.
  WHY? If you latest files becomes corrupted, you still have previous versions to use. (Better to reenter some
  information rather than ALL information.)
  3. It is very rare for someone to completely fill their computer's harddrive, so take advantage of this extra storage
  by keeping multiple versions of your records.
  4. Get into the habit of saving the file as a different name everytime you save.
  5. You may use a floppy to transfer the file from one computer to another, but always maintain the original on a
  CD or harddrive.

Changing the file name
  1. Click on the "File" menu, and drag down to "Save As."
  2. Change the file name in the box the pops open.
  4. We recommend changing a number at the end of the file name. You always know that the highest
  number is the latest version.
      For Example: Jan2003SAE1.xls…Jan2003SAE2.xls…Jan2003SAE3.xls…etc.
  NOTE: ".xls" extension on the end of the file name…always add this extension. This extension will allow you
  to move from MAC to PC computers without problems. PCs typically will not be able to identify the type of file
  without this extension. Start the habit of adding the extensions to your file names. ( ".doc" for Word files; ".ppt"
  for Powerpoint files; ".xls" for Excel files)
