Below are basic instructions for using the FastBooks Solutions Model.
A principle design structure throughout the Model is the yellow highlighted cells are the only cells formatted for entering data. All other cells are protected and cannot be changed or altered in any way.
The yellow highlighted cells in any core Model segment can contain a number, a simple to very complicated calculation, cell notes or a cell pointer. The design purpose for including the Formula Bar display line explained below is to allow for entering data in yellow highlighted cells beyond pure numbers.
The Excel Formula Bar is designed to display directly above the Excel column heading positioned as the top line of the screen. After clicking on a yellow highlighted cell, enter the data in the cell or the Formula Bar. To use the Formula Bar to enter data in yellow highlighted cells first using the mouse click on the designated cell. Next, still using the mouse, click on the Formula Bar on the top line of the screen to enter the data. In the same manner as entering a simple number in a cell; click the Enter Key after entering the data in the Formula Bar.
By utilizing cell pointers in yellow highlighted cells in core Model segments enables a business user to populate cells with calculations included in Model segments they have added.
Examples of utilizing a cell pointer to populate yellow highlighted cells in core Model segments might be a total calculation of a simple spreadsheet created to keep track of travel expense by employees or a total from a bank account statement downloaded in a user-created Model segment. The Model can accommodate up to 250 Excel sheet tab Model segments. Adding cell notes to support a complicated calculation to refer to at some later date is useful.
Adding a string of numbers in the Formula Bar, for example, the designated yellow highlighted cell would display only the calculated results of the formula, after clicking the Enter Key.
In Excel clicking the Enter Key in any cell coordinate advances the cell cursor to the next row in the column. For example, if the cell cursor is in the cell coordinate a1 clicking, the Enter Key will advance the cell cursor to cell coordinate a2.
