Excel 2016 is a new version that is in the already inevitable Office package and that comes with everything we already know from the previous version. This book is created to share with you much of what I know of this powerful application and, of course, help you to make your work much more efficient.

Excel 2016 is a worksheet application used by almost everyone. Its powerful tools and the easy use of its interface have made this program the most popular among users, information professionals and anyone who needs to perform any data analysis.

When you immerse yourself working with Excel, you will notice that your window is very similar to a grid sheet, and it is possible that as soon as you see it, you already have an idea of how to use this application. Yes, just add the data in each of those small, thin rectangles, and then, use a function to get a result, that's it, that's all.

Of course, not only will you want to follow my previous example, you may have in mind to present a first quarter sales report, or that you need to visually compare the 2015 and 2016 financial income, or that you simply want to store a list of your invoices data day by day; whatever your purpose, Excel can help you.

This book will guide you through the most used tools Excel has. The chapters are designed with complete independence, so you do not need to read each chapter sequentially; if you already know certain topics, you can go to the chapter that interests you most and keep learning. If you are a user who will use Excel for the first time, I recommend that you start from the beginning. In addition, this book can be used as a reference material when necessary, so, whatever the level you have, you can take advantage of this content.

What is Excel?

Excel is the most used program in the world for the creation of powerful worksheets with which you can perform statistical data analysis, generate reports, and even add specialized charts to present your data to any audience.

Once you start working with Excel 2016, you will realize that your tools are very easy to use. If you have already had experience with previous versions you should not worry since everything is still in its place; on the other hand, if you are a new user in Excel, it will not take long to understand how it works. In this book, you will learn the essential concepts to use Excel and get the most out of it.

Starting Excel

Excel can be installed mainly in new operating systems such as Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. The way to access Excel 2016 works slightly different in Windows 8 and Windows 10. For example, in Windows 10 there is a menu called Start that appears when pressing the Windows logo key. In contrast, in Windows 8, pressing the same key, takes us to the Start screen, which shows a series of tiles and a new interface.

This book is using Windows 10 as the client operating system. If you have another operating system, some screenshots may not look identical to yours.

To open Excel using Windows 8

1.     On your Start screen, navigate to the Microsoft Office 2016 tile group.

2.     Click or tap in Excel 2016.

To open Excel Using Windows 10

1.     Click on the Start button.

2.     Scroll through the start menu until you get to the letter E.

3.     If you have a pre-Anniversary Update version of Windows 10, you should first click on All Applications.

4.     Click on Excel 2016.

Open from instant search box

In Windows 7, when I clicked on the Start button, below the menu options, a search box appeared which helped to speed up the search of a program or file. In Windows 10, we have a similar search bar that is integrated into a new search concept called Cortana. To use this box and find Excel 2016 follow these steps:

1.     Click on the search box.

2.     Write Excel.

3.     Wait for the searcher to show results that match the written word.

4.     Click on Excel 2016.

Open from pin to start menu icon

One way to open Excel 2016 more quickly is by pinning the program icon to the Start menu. A pinned icon allows it not to disappear from the start menu and is easier to access.

To pin the Excel 2016 icon

1.     Click on Start | All applications | E | Excel 2016.

2.     Right-click on the Excel 2016 icon.

3.     Select Pin to Start.

Now the icon (mosaic) of Excel 2016 is embedded in the mosaics area to the right of the Start menu.

Open from pin to taskbar icon

Just as you could pin the Excel icon to the Start menu, you can also do it in your taskbar. For example, if you have already pinned the Excel 2016 icon to the start menu, just right-click on that icon and select the Pin to taskbar option.

The Excel Start Screen

When you start Excel 2016, the first thing you will see is the Start screen. On this screen you can easily create a new workbook, or open an existing one. When you create a new workbook, you will have the option of using a blank one or choosing a predesigned template, the latter is ideal for you to edit it as you like.

A workbook is the name given to Excel files. To work with Excel 2016 you must first create a blank workbook or through a predesigned template.

Disable the Start screen

The Start screen is the first thing that is displayed when you open Excel
