Excel Chapter 1 Creating a Worksheet and an Embedded Chart
After carefully reviewing the requirements document (Figure 1–2 on page EX 4) and
necessary decisions, the next step is to design a solution or draw a sketch of the worksheet
based on the requirements, including titles, column and row headings, location of data
values, and the 3-D Clustered Column chart, as shown in Figure 1–3 on page EX 5. The
dollar signs, 9s, and commas that you see in the sketch of the worksheet indicate formatted
numeric values.
With a good understanding of the requirements document, an understanding of the
necessary decisions, and a sketch of the worksheet, the next step is to use Excel to create
the worksheet and chart.
