Depending on the type of data source you want to connect to, follow the steps to specify connection properties. For example, if you are connecting to a Microsoft SQL Server 2000 database, you are asked to provide a database logon name and password, a database name, and a data table or data view name. 6. After you have specified the connection properties, click Finish. The Select Data Source dialog box reappears. 7. Click the data source connection file, click Open, and then follow the on-screen directions to finish importing the data.

For instance, if the data value for a particular field in a record is zero, use the number 0 in the field. If the data value is unknown, use the word Unknown for that data value. If a data value is left blank, it can sometimes be difficult to determine whether the value is zero or the data value was forgotten somehow. • Only one list should appear on each worksheet. Techniques such as sorting, grouping, and filtering work best when they are restricted to single lists on single worksheets. • Field names are descriptive but not verbose.

Tip Although the examples in the preceding table used actual data values, you can substitute cell addresses, and Excel will substitute the value of the cell when the function performs the calculation. For example, if you have the value 2 in cell A1 and the value 3 in cell A2, =SUM(A1, A2) would return 5. Tip For a group of cells that touch each other, you can specify the first cell’s address in the group, followed by a colon (:), followed by the last cell’s address in the group. For instance, A1:B3 refers to the group of cells A1, A2, A3, B1, B2, and B3.
