Its really important to consider the formatting of your spreadsheet. It may seem trivial to even spend time on thinking about your formatting, but if you follow a few simple rules your brilliant spreadsheet will not only look good but do your calculations speedy and efficiently.
This may sound a little unfair. After all, a standard Microsoft installation would include something called Equation Editor. Suffice to say, it wasnt advertised in the promotional videos. Software like Matlab was considered vastly superior and had the added advantage that you could analyze the equations as well. Anyway, the good news is that Microsoft has taken a big step forwards with Office 2010 and its now possible to correctly display formulas in a pretty painless fashion.
Thirdly, in my experience many business people find that even the most basic accounting system is too complicated, and, if they do not have good bookkeeping skills they will fail to use the system correctly.
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.
