Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a simple data table, part of Computer Literacy for Mac (2015).
- Let's take a look at how to create…a basic spreadsheet from scratch.…Again, I'm working in Microsoft Excel,…but everything I'm showing you here…will apply to other spreadsheet applications, as well.…I'm gonna create a new blank spreadsheet…by choosing File, New Workbook.…And I'm gonna switch this to View, Page Layout,…so it's a little easier to see what I'm doing.…And I'll just zoom in a little bit here.…So, let's say I'm trying to decide…between taking two jobs at an hourly rate.…One pays more per hour but offers slightly fewer hours…than the one that pays less.…I'll start by using the first row of columns B and C…as headers for the two job calculations.…
So, to type into a cell, just click in it and start typing.…So I'll type Job A in B1.…To move horizontally from cell to cell,…press the tab key on your keyboard.…You can go back to the left by holding shift…as you press tab.…I'll go back to C1, and I'll type Job B.…And I'll use column A to label all the rows I'm gonna need.…So I'll type Hourly Wage.…Now, pressing enter or return on your keyboard…
