A workbook is a file that contains one or more worksheets. It is also called a spreadsheet, but it’s not the same thing. The difference is that a spreadsheet has only one sheet of data on each tab, while a workbook has several sheets of data on different tabs.
How to Open an Excel Workbook
The first step in opening a workbook is to select the appropriate template for your needs. You can use the default template, or you can alter it to suit your specific requirements.
How to Share an Excel Workbook
Often, you need to collaborate with others on an Excel workbook. You can do this by sharing a workbook to a local network, using Microsoft’s OneDrive or by sending it as an email attachment.
Controlling Access to a Shared Workbook
To protect an Excel workbook, you can make it read-only or encrypt it with a password. You can also use these tools to control who can edit the workbook and what type of changes they can make.
You can also set a workbook to require a password when it is opened, which prevents anyone else from making changes to the workbook. You can do this by choosing a password from the Protect and Share Workbook menu in the Review tab, then clicking OK.
How to Export an Excel Workbook as a PDF
If you’re using Excel to create reports and other business documents, you may need to export the workbook in PDF format so that they can be printed out. Luckily, Excel has many options to make it easier for you to do this.
How to Change the Format of a Worksheet
To make a worksheet look more professional, you can change its formatting. This is done by adjusting the colors, fonts, and other elements of the document’s appearance. You can also add new elements to a worksheet, such as an icon or a chart.
How to Autofill a Column with Data
When you’re creating a list of dates or numbers, Excel makes it easy to fill the columns automatically with pre-defined values. This can save you a lot of time and effort, especially when you need to input the same information into multiple columns.
How to Use Excel’s Math Functions
You can use Excel’s basic math functions to perform common tasks, such as adding, subtracting, and finding averages. This will save you a great deal of time and help you get your job done faster.
How to Insert a Column
To add a column to your worksheet, select the cell where you want to insert it and then click the Insert button. You can also right-click on a column and choose the insertion option from the context menu.
How to Hide a Worksheet
When you need to hide a workbook, you can do so by using the Hide and Unhide worksheets command in the Context menu. You can also use the Shift+Ctrl+Shift+A keyboard shortcut to open the Hide and Unhide worksheets dialog box.
