You will be assessed on your ability to:
^ Develop complex spreadsheets
^ Develop graphical representations of data contained in spreadsheets
^ Spreadsheets terminology in order to understand the tasks
^ OHS knowledge to work in an ergonomically safe functioning environment.
^ Characteristics of software necessary for research or to record information electronically.
How do I know if I have passed? And what if I fail?
There are only two 'marks' or grades in a certificate course. They are 'competent' (C) and 'not yet competent' (NYC). If you are rated 'Not Yet Competent' (NYC) in a unit, you will receive feedback and some coaching or training if necessary. You will then be re-assessed only for those areas in which you were rated 'NYC' at a later time. If you still are not rated competent, then the process begins again. You will receive feedback and some coaching or training, as necessary. You will then be re-assessed.
This is one of the advantages of this type of training that is called 'competency based training'. You have three (3) attempts to repeat the parts you need. If you are deemed still as 'Not Yet Competent' (NYC) you will receive an alternative assessment to complete.

Analyse task and determine
specifications for a spreadsheet
Excel is an electronic spreadsheet program that can be used for storing, organising and manipulating data. Charts can be easily generated from excel data and transformed into a visual report. Other common operations that excel can be used for is filtering and sorting data to find specific information.
When you look at the Excel screen (refer to the example Figure 1 Spreadsheet on this page) you see a rectangular table or grid of rows and columns.
An excel file is known as a workbook. When a workbook is opened it contains three (3) worksheets, the worksheets are initially named Sheet 1, Sheet 2 and Sheet 3, these names can be changed and worksheet can be added. Each worksheet is displayed as a tab; the active worksheet will be highlighted.

Figure 1 Spreadsheet
Spreadsheets are often used to store financial data. Formulas and functions that are used on this type of data include:
• Performing basic mathematical operations such as summing columns and rows of figures.
• Finding values such as profit or loss.
• Calculating repayment plans for loans or mortgages.
• Finding the average, maximum, or minimum values in a specified range of data.

Designing a workbook
Before creating a workbook you need to ask yourself a few questions.
• What data should be in rows and which in columns? Consider the readability of your data before you make this decision.
• Do you want your worksheet date to be long rather than wide so you can use the page up and page down?
• What formulas will be necessary to achieve the required output?
• Does the spreadsheet require printing?
• Who is the audience?
• Does the worksheet rely on imported date?
A simple plan is the best way to ensure all the required information is used for each spreadsheet.
Plan your spreadsheet
Before you begin entering data into a spreadsheet it is a good idea to do a bit of planning before you begin to type.
Points to consider
• What is the purpose of the spreadsheet?
• What information needs to be included?
• What headings are needed to explain the information in the spreadsheet?
• What is the best layout for the information, in rows or columns?
Some General Rules
Whenever possible, don't leave blank rows or columns when entering your data.
• Leaving blank rows and columns in data tables can make it difficult to use a number of Excel's built in features such as graphing and functions.
Enter your data in columns when possible
• When laying out your spreadsheet, place a title describing the data at the top of the first column of the table with the data below.
If there is more than one data series, list them one after the other in columns (left to right) with the title for each data series at the top.
Each organisation may have their specifications that you have to follow when designing a spreadsheet.
• Remove worksheets that are not being used
• Certain cells shaded
• Renaming the default worksheets
• Adding headers and footers

Name and Store Spreadsheets
Naming Convention
Most organisations have a naming convention system for naming and saving files. Files need to be named uniquely to reflect the content of the file and the place in the hierarchy of files. An example of this is if you saved a file as Costings.xlsx, this would be fine, however what happens if a company has lots of costing files. A more precise name could be Jan14_Costing.xlsx or Janl4Costing.xlsx. As you can see the file name doesn't have a space, this has been replaced by an underscore. Be very careful when you are naming files, to follow the Windows file name rules — you cannot us the characters/:*?- I
Spaces are ok to be used in files names, however some programs do not recognise spaces — as above
I have used an underscore to replace the space. If you are not sure of all the end users for the file, do not leave a space.
File Storage
Files can be saved in various locations, depending on your company or home computer. Broadly speaking you will save to removable storage such as USB, External Hard drive, CD or DVD, or local hard drive and network.
File Structure
By default file structures are saved in order and show in a hierarchical order. To view the file structure you need to access Windows Explorer or it could be called Explore by right clicking on your start command. An example of a file structure:
jv a Computer a Local Disk (C:) - E
