Exploring file-management fundamentals
One of the advantages of working with computers is the convenience of electronic files. In
this section, we describe both the usual and unusual ways you can manage your Excel files.
Creating workbooks
To create a new workbook, click the File tab and then click New to display the screen shown
in Figure 2-19. Click the arrow at the top left of the New screen at any time to return to the
worksheet. Click Blank Workbook, and a fresh workbook opens. Each new blank workbook
you create during the current Excel session is numbered sequentially: Book1, Book2, and
so on.
Excel 2013 offers a staggering array of sophisticated templates representing hundreds of
hours of thought and effort, and revealing the potential of Excel. There are a lot of helpful
templates you can use right away. And if you ever need some inspiration, open a template
you find interesting and examine it to see how it was constructed. There is a lot to learn just
by looking. Templates are continually added to the online inventory, so be sure to use the
search box to see what’s new and available on the web. Suggested Searches are clickable
links that display categories of available templates gleaned from the Microsoft website at
the moment.
Excel is more web connected than ever. Some templates are installed on your system, but
most are in the cloud. This not only saves space for you, but also makes it possible to offer
more templates, more complex templates, and a constant source of new templates.
Keeping templates in the cloud also makes it easy for developers to ix problems and make
enhancements. Figure 2-19 shows the nifty templates available with an Internet
connection. Figure 2-20 shows the search box disabled and the selection of relatively Spartan (but
equally useful) templates that are available when your computer is ofline.
