Step 1: Using Excel
We'll be using Excel 2010 for this tutorial.
Excel is based on “cells,” boxes that can contain numbers or the results of mathematical formulas. These are the parts of Excel you will need to know for this tutorial.
Name Box: This is the name of the active cell. In this case, the cell being edited is A1.
Formula Bar: Rather than type in the cells, cells are edited in the formula bar.
Active Cell: The cell being edited at the moment is called the active cell, and is highlighted with a thicker black outline.
Column Letters: Cells are given a letter depending on which column they're in. The active cell is in row “A.”
Row Numbers: Cells are given a number for they're column. The active cell is in row “1.”
