Flashcard Content Overview

Excel is a spreadsheet program available in Microsoft Office software packages. It can be used for projects ranging from work schedules to payroll information. While figuring out which tool does what, it is useful to recognize and understand many of the basic Excel terms and their definitions. Each of these flashcards contains a single term and its meaning; the cards also contain images to help you visualize the term itself. You will learn which cursors serve which functions, how to differentiate between columns and rows, and the difference between worksheets and workbooks. You will also learn how to navigate between multiple worksheets and workbooks, how to enter text into rows and columns, and how to drag formulas to other cells. By studying these flashcards, you will not only learn to successfully navigate your way through Excel, but you will also know how to create your own spreadsheet projects, how to organize them, and how to read them. These flashcards simplify the process of learning to use Excel academically, professionally, or personally. Give them a glance and enjoy the information!
