Instructions for the Microsoft Excel Templates by Rex A Schildhouse| |
Be advised, the template workbooks and worksheets are not protected. Overtyping any data may remove it.|
|
|
Extensive detail and information is contained within the help function of Microsoft Excel and in the provided text.| |
You should enter your name, date, instructor's name, and course into the cells at the top of the page. This information will be printed on the top of each page if the template requires more than one page.| |

Each template is set to print with File Name, Page # of # Page(s), the print date, and the print time to assist in assembly of multiple pages.| |
|
If more than one page is required by the template, manual page breaks have been set to provide consistent presentation.| |
All of the cells have been correctly formatted for presentation and should not require any adjustment. For example, if the text requires one, two, or three significant digits in a presentation, the template has been set for that presentation in the appropriate cells.| |

|
|
In general, the yellow highlighted cells are the cells which work and effort should be presented. These entries may include date(s), account title(s), values, memorandum appropriate to the entry, or text answers to questions.| |

|
And information or data which may be required by the solution will be entered in cells with borders to help identify them.| |
Where a yellow highlighted cell shows "Date" enter the appropriate date for that step of the challenge. This may be any date format that Microsoft Excel accepts. Some of these formats include "1/1/12", "01/01/12", and "01/01/2012." All of these will return January 01, 2012, in the format set in the template.| |

|
|
Where a yellow highlighted cell shows "Acct Nbr" enter the appropriate account number, provided in the template and in the text for that step of the challenge. This is entry may be a "Look to" formula to another cell where that information has been provided or previously entered.| |

|
|
Where a yellow highlighted cell shows "Account Title" enter the appropriate account title for that step of the challenge. This is a text entry and most of those cells are set for the proper indentation for that step. Frequently the chart of accounts appropriate to the challenge is provided and you can use the "look to" formula to reference the appropriate account title without typing it.| |

|
|
Check with your instructor to see if abbreviated account titles are acceptable. For example "A/R" for Accounts Receivable, "A/P" for Accounts Payable. If your instructor is using a comparison process between workbooks for grading, these abbreviates may not be acceptable.| |

|
|
Where a yellow highlighted cell shows titles such as "Values," "Amounts," or "Quantities" enter the appropriate numerical value for that step of the challenge. The cell is formatted for proper presentation of the entered information. If a dollar sign is appropriate, it should not be entered, Microsoft Excel will place it there through formatting. Commas and significant digits (decimals) are also set through formatting for common presentation. Since the formatting of the templates is not protected by any password, you may change any of the formatting found in the templates to meet your desires.| |

|
|
|
|
Where a yellow highlighted cell shows titles such as "Formula" you may enter the appropriate formula or enter a numerical value appropriate for that step of the challenge. Most of the values necessary for the appropriate formula are located on the template in cells with borders or in other yellow highlighted cells. The formula may be a simple "Look to" formula, an equal sign and a cell reference, "=E27" or more complex as "=E27*5," or something similar to the time-value-of-money formula. These are addressed in the tutorial text provided for Microsoft Excel.| |...
