Flow Chart

The Flowchart is a very useful chart, if you wish to know how to process a certain task for it to get a very specific result. You’d might have a good understanding about what you would like to do, which is very likely. But, it might play a challenge on your memorial capacity.

It would also make it possible for you to successfully know which decisions you would like to make for the result to be achievable. Basically, a flowchart is something that successfully make your decision process easy to get the result you like. We are going to create a flowchart together using Microsoft Excel. I don’t know which Microsoft Excel version you are using, but I will be using the 2013 version.


It is also possible to do the flowchart on Microsoft Words, but it is possible that it is a lot easier for you to use Microsoft Excel for the flowchart creation. The reason varies, and it might be because Microsoft Excel make it possible for you do the flowchart creation without considering the size of the paper. Microsoft Words have standard size, while Microsoft Excel is breeder and longer, without any line breaking.The Excel columns have standard size that make it possible to know how many columns each shape should cover to have a specific size on each shape. This is because there are standard size of each column that the Microsoft Excel entail. This makes it possible to decide how many columns you would like each shape to cover, when drawing the shapes.
