PRINTING TITLES IN MS EXCEL 2013

Microsoft Excel 2013

If you need to print a sheet which is consisted of many rows or columns filed with data, you can use the MS Excel feature that enables you to print particular rows and columns (labels) as headings of the pages. With this feature called Print Titles, you can “freeze” the selected rows or columns and you can make them visible on the other pages from the sheet. Print Title option should not be confused with the printing of the header of the report, which is also printed in the top margin of every page. Print Titles prints the headings at the top if the rows are used as print titles and on the left in the case of printing the columns as headings.

HOW TO CREATE A SPEEDOMETER CHART IN MICROSOFT EXCEL 2010 – PART 1

Microsoft Excel 2010

This article is about creating a Speedometer Chart in Microsoft Excel 2010.

Microsoft Excel 2010 makes it available to create an impressive, workable Speedometer Chart, complete with a moving arrow by making a combination of several different types of charts. What is also very good about creating this Speedometer Chart is that you can control it with a scroll bar.

The Excel 2010 Chart Wizard gives us a lot of options when it comes up to chart, but in this case the Speedometer Chart is not one of them. We will show you how to create this type of chart because you can use it as a fancy way to present your data. In Excel you can also add a scrollbar in the Control Toolbox toolbar with which you can change the chart itself and sheet data at the same time.

What we need to do now is to have some data like in the picture below and create a Doughnut Chart, which is pretty much a Pie Chart, but the trick is that it can contain multiple series and the Pie hart can’t do that.

INSERT HEADERS OR FOOTERS INTO MICROSOFT EXCEL 2013

Microsoft Excel 2013

This article will show you how to insert headers and footers into Microsoft Excel 2013. Headers and footer are standard texts that appear on every page of the report. The header is in the top margin of the page and footer is in the bottom margin. Both are centered vertically in the margins and unless you specify otherwise Excel does not automatically add either to a new workbook.

To add a header or footer to your report you go to page layout view by clicking the button on the status bar, then position the mouse pointer over the section in the top margin of the first page marked click to add header or in the bottom margin of the first page marked click to add footer.
