What separates the great spreadsheets from the rest, is documentation! This will help future users of the spreadsheets to really understand your work. Your spreadsheet should contain a ‘Documentation’ sheet as the first, or last worksheet.
Long ago, Excel was not as clever and advanced as today, but the so-called array functions have been around for a long time. However, most people do not know about them, and do not understand them.
Even Thomas Jefferson, 19th century president of the United States, remarked: “The most valuable of all talents is that of never using two words when one will do.”
(Hidden) circular references occur when Excel tries to compute a result of a cell that’s already been visited during the calculation round. Excel doesn’t warn us of conditional circular references.
The use of fixed numbers is a bad idea. A future user will not know where the number came from, and fixed numbers don’t change automatically, and thus might be overlooked when a change is made.
Do not hide anything except some sheets. Excel has too many attractive options that look good but may be risky in the long run.
It is so tempting to merge cells in Excel so that they form a header above two or more columns. Yes, we must admit, it looks nice, but resist the temptation because it can be dangerous!
