Google Spreadsheets

One new Google feature barely covered in Googlepedia is Google Spreadsheets. That's because Google Spreadsheets launched the same week the book was supposed to go to the printer; I was able to insert a few paragraphs at the last minute, but timing was against us.

That's one reason why I recently wrote a Digital Shortcut "electronic book" for Que Publishing, titled Using Google Spreadsheets. This is a 50 pp. book in PDF format that you can purchase and download online. It covers everything there is to know about Google Spreadsheets, from basic operation to advanced formatting and functions, and everything in-between. You'll also learn how to import your existing Excel spreadsheets into Google Spreadsheets, and share your spreadsheets and collaborate online with others. There's even a comprehensive Google Spreadsheets function reference, essential for all advanced spreadsheet creators.

Here's the complete table of contents for the e-book:
  • Introducing Google Spreadsheets
  • Migrating from Excel to Google Spreadsheets
  • Navigating the Google Spreadsheets Workspace
  • Creating, Opening, and Saving Google Spreadsheets
  • Entering and Editing Data
  • Working with Ranges
  • Sorting Data
  • Inserting, Deleting, Moving, and Copying Data
  • Changing Column Width and Row Height
  • Formatting Google Spreadsheets
  • Entering and Editing Formulas
  • Using Functions
  • Working with Multiple Sheets
  • Printing Google Spreadsheets
  • Sharing and Collaborating with Google Spreadsheets
  • A Final Word
Click here to read more, or to purchase and download the e-book. The price is right, at just $4.99.
