Meeting Presentation Start: 2:30 PM

New member: Kyle Hollier
Renewals: George & Mary Sculley and Mike Lagaza
Featured Speaker: Mr. Claud Sibert Featured Topic: An Afternoon with Excel
Claud presented in detail the three major features of Excel:
1. Graphing Data
2. Number Processing
3. Database Sorting
A graph was created from a prefabricated data table of temperature versus elapsed time. Each step in the graphing process was carefully detailed. Once a graph is created, updating only requires inputting data over the existing data. The graph is automatically updated.
Number processing was detailed using a column of numbers. Several built-in functions were reviewed. Also, the effects of relative cell reference and absolute cell reference were shown. A simple expense report was reconciled using only a few clicks of the mouse.
Database (address list) alphabetizing (a type of sort) was presented. Critical feature - the entire database must be selected for sorting.
