Many businesses track customers, products, and other financial data using software applications instead of pencil and paper. One reason for this is to manage data and information easily and to utilize creative and unique customization tools provided with Excel.
You will create a workbook for a company to use to input customer information, using formatting and page setup features, and explain why you should use Excel.
