We Take it simple and will start by creating a simple, personal budget workbook, to illustrate the processes involved in creating and updating your Excel spreadsheet.
1. When Excel opens, it offers a list of recent workbooks that you used and allows you to open other workbooks, or you can select the new blank workbook which is named “Book1” by default – this can be used as the starting point for your new workbook.
2. Type the spreadsheet title “My Personal Budget” ( or something else you want) in cell A1, and press the down arrow Key, or the Enter key, to go to cell A2 (or just click cell A2 to select it)
⇒ The Excel Start screen displays templates, and lists recent workbooks. You could select a predefined workbook template from those stored on your computer, or online at the
Microsoft website (Try it from your side).
⇒ Note: Text is automatically aligned to the left of the cell, numbers are aligned to the right.
