Check Templates / December 19, 2018 / Alfreda Graham
From now on when you start Excel your new blank default work book will be the one you have just created. Should you need to create a work book with the original default work book then hit Office>New and select Blank Work book. You can really make the default template your own add a company logo and colors without any extra effort by creating a new default template you can work smarter and faster but keep that professional edge. Templates are spreadsheets that are pre-formatted with text colors and/or formulas. They can be used to save you time and effort. Sometimes you are using a workbook as a template and don t even realize it.
By using excel templates it is far easier to analyze the conditions for future performance of stocks shares commodities and a business as a whole. Basic data such as revenue variables and fixed costs can provide calculations whereby valuation becomes simple. Unlike other software related to financial matters excel templates are easy to use. They require only the minimal input which though often subjective can help in providing the correct analysis. Quantifiable values help in understanding the best weighting in terms of capital that is used for a variety of assets.
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.
