An Introduction to Excel for Civil Engineers Book By Gunther Pangaribuan
The work performed by Excel is basically the job of entering data which is then processed
to obtain the desired results. It is, in principle, the same as entering data into an electronic
calculator. However, the data entered here consists of various types and coupled with
existing Excel facilities makes it possible to present the appearance of numbers, text,
associated tables, graphs and a database. This makes Excel becomes well integrated to
create a reporting text and the problem analysis as well.
Each version of Excel to be developed to always make changes and additions of new
facilities, while is still maintaining compatibility with previous versions. But the changes do
not alter the basic features of this software as a worksheet for computing applications. In
this book, we will be working with Microsoft Excel 2007.
