Welcome in the next section of this Microsoft for Beginners. Now before we jump in and start to talk about templates, I want to do a quick preview on what the idea is what the concept is of an Excel template. Now I am going to use our monthly budget as the example, I have to do is monthly. Maybe this is going to turn into a quarterly report three months every time for the monthly budget.
Well each time a quarter rolls around I do not want to have to recreate this. I want to be able to create a template something that I can reuse that already has base structure built into it like this. If I were to turn this into a template, I would first wipe out the data that says that the specific data for January February March to my delete key and now I have got the beginnings of a template, it is already got the main headers the main bills it is already got the calculations it is already formatted, it is already got a chart down below, It is empty right now. I do not have any data that it is already there it is just waiting for me to plug in the appropriate data.
And that is the idea of a template we are going to take-a-look at some Excel templates that come with Excel and we are going to turn this right here into a template. Let me do I mean it controls Z, that is our on you get that data back.
So, let us take-a-look at first taking advantage of some existing templates within Excel.
