Format cells as text only if you really have to, as all of the data you enter into a text formatted cell becomes text, even if you meant it to be numeric, this is one thing you do not want- any formula cells to be formatted as text.
The only caveat to add to all the above is that your freshly written equation will appear in a textbox. Textboxes are distinct from the main spreadsheet in that they have no cell address. This means they can be dragged across the sheet to your desired location. Obviously you dont want to have to move the formula every time you insert or delete rows from the underlying spreadsheet. Fortunately the default settings for such objects ensure that they retain their local position at all times.
Do not over format. Yes make it easy to read and follow, but do go to far, this will add bulk and can inhibit the performance of Excel. in particular conditional formatting can slow down Excel, as it continually recalculates.
Secondly, Small Business Accounting Software is usually designed with a one size fits all philosophy, and in an attempt to match the softwares functionality with your requirements, the developers compensate by having complicated set up routines. Great, if you understand what you are doing, but potentially disastrous if you get it wrong. So, it is essential that you obtain professional help to minimise these problems. This again increases your costs.
