Arrow Welcome to ExcelBanter

Folks -

You are reading this probably because you are considering participating in these Excel related newsgroups. These are the finest Microsoft Excel discussions on the internet, with many contributors who have the widest experience imaginable.

This forum is a web gateway to this collection of newsgroups. ExcelBanter.com mirrors these discussions and allows you to participate through a high quality web forum.

Many people choose to access these groups through a newsreader (e.g. Outlook Express). I make no distinction about the merits of each way of accessing these newsgroups, ExcelBanter.com merely offers an alternative to a newsreader.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with newsgroups or Usenet, the best description I've seen is at

http://www.faqs.org/faqs/usenet/what-is/part1 and http://www.faqs.org/faqs/usenet/what-is/part2

No one "owns" Usenet and the groups that are gatewayed into ExcelBanter.com are mostly unmoderated. The feed that we provide is a service and is just a gateway into another discussion area. You're liable to see flaming, bad language, bad behaviour and a whole bunch of really objectionable stuff if you look hard enough.

But, as you continue to look, you'll see some real gems of information and some *very* knowledgeable folks.

Once again, ExcelBanter.com doesn't own Usenet, has no control over its content and the feeds are provided without any interference (or moderation) from the folks on ExcelBanter.com.

Usenet can be harsh at times - but this newsgroup community as a whole has unparrelled knowledge and can be amazingly helpful.

To participate in the discussions through ExcelBanter.com, you will need to register. Registration is quick and free.

I strongly recommend before posting for the first time to read through previous posts in the forum to get a feel for the style of that group. If there is a FAQ, please read it. These are normally the first thread in the forum marked as 'sticky'. Also use the search function to check if your question has been asked before.

Please note, when posting from this website you are not only posting to this website forum, but to the newsgroup. Your message will be propagated to many hundreds / thousands of servers and will end up in other newsgroup archives such as this (E.g. http://groups.google.com).

To sum things up, I really hope you enjoy participating in these newsgroups , but read at your own risk.

Thumbs up Answer: Welcome to ExcelBanter

Hi there! As an Excel expert, I'm happy to help you with any questions you may have about using Excel. Whether you're a beginner or an advanced user, I'm here to assist you in any way I can.

If you're new to Excel, I recommend starting with the basics such as:
  1. Creating a new workbook
  2. Entering data
  3. Formatting cells

To create a new workbook, simply open Excel and click on "New Workbook" or press Ctrl+N. You can then enter data into the cells by clicking on a cell and typing in the information. To format cells, you can right-click on a cell and select "Format Cells" to change the font, color, and other attributes.

If you need to perform calculations in Excel, you can use formulas and functions. Formulas are equations that perform calculations on values in your worksheet, while functions are pre-built formulas that perform specific calculations. For example, the
Code:
=SUM(A1:A10)
formula adds up a range of cells, while the
Code:
=AVERAGE(A1:A10)
function calculates the average of a range of cells.

Finally, if you want to automate repetitive tasks in Excel, you can use macros. Macros are recorded actions that can be played back to perform a series of tasks automatically. For example, you can create a macro to format a range of cells with a specific font and color. If you need to write more complex macros, you can use
Formula:
Visual Basic 
code.

I hope this gives you a good starting point for using Excel. If you have any specific questions or need further assistance, feel free to ask and I'll do my best to help you out. Don't hesitate to use the bold tag to emphasize any important points in your questions!

Hi there! As an Excel expert, I'm happy to help with any questions you may have. Excel is a powerful tool for organizing and analyzing data, and there are many features and functions that can make your work easier and more efficient.

If you're new to Excel, I recommend starting with some basic tutorials to get familiar with the interface and basic functions. Microsoft offers some great resources on their website, and there are also many online tutorials and videos available.

Once you're comfortable with the basics, you can start exploring some of the more advanced features of Excel. For example, you can use pivot tables to quickly summarize and analyze large amounts of data, or use conditional formatting to highlight important information in your spreadsheets.

If you have a specific question or problem you're trying to solve, feel free to ask and I'll do my best to help. To provide the most accurate answer, please include as much detail as possible about your data and what you're trying to accomplish.

And remember, ExcelBanter.com is a great resource for finding answers to common Excel questions and connecting with other Excel users. Happy Excel-ing!
