Several of these exercises require pre-existing Excel documents. These
documents may be found on your R: drive, in nearly the same
location in which the previous exercise's documents were found --- the
final folder on the ``trail of folders'' is named excel3. Don't
forget to do a Save As after you've opened each document.
These questions may appear on a forthcoming quiz. They come from the
Excel Essentials readings)
- What is multitasking?
- Why is the exchange of data between documents useful?
- What is an integrated suite?
- Name two integrated suites.
- What do OLE and DDE stand for?
- What is linking?
- What does embedding an object in another document allow you to do?
- Finish the Excel II exercise before starting this one.
- Project 8, On Your Own, pg. 167. The files are named
usedcds.xls and usedcds.doc . Note that you are copying the
spreadsheet, but not linking it. Change some numbers on
the spreadsheet and note that they don't change in the letter.
- Project 8, Brief Cases, pg. 168. The files are named
investor.xls and investor.doc . Note that you are linking
the chart (the same could be done with a spreadsheet --- as you will do on
the project). Change some numbers in the spreadsheet (ignore the
suggestions given in the exercise) and observe that both charts change (on
the spreadsheet and within the Word document) to reflect the changes.
