Check Templates / December 17, 2018 / Kristy Wall
Once inputs of data have been made you cannot delete it on the database. You can either edit the information or mark it void with matching referral or cause of action. If payroll checks with same inquiries are saved frequently it would be easier for you to save these data as templates in order to reuse it. A recurring payroll template cannot be edited however; you can enter the employee s payroll information and create another recurring check template with the employee s name. You can always modify the details in a payroll check template by adding moving or removing selected fields in accordance with the company s requirements.
The background of the area where I want my team to enter the data is always a lighter color with the headings backgrounds being formatted with a darker color. This strategy is in line with that used in software development. You will notice in applications like Microsoft Word you always type the text in the lighter area and the darker area is the headings. The flip side is that if your background is a light color then the text being entered must be a dark color and for the headings if your heading backgrounds are dark then the text should be light. Always be carefully when using the colors Red Green and Blue on templates as people with color blindness can find those colors confusing.
Issue 1: Protect the Worksheet and Cells The first issue when creating a template is to ensure that your worksheet and cells are protected. For example the cells you want people to put data into should not have protection applied and the headlines you need to use to explain where to put the data into should in fact be protected. Further to this in Microsoft Excel 2003 you can set that cells that are protected cannot be selected and I recommend that all headline areas are set in this way.. Issue 2: Lock the Workbook against Structural Changes There are different levels of security in Microsoft Excel such as security at the cell level worksheet level and workbook level.
