By itself Excel is a user friendly tool. But it can be made much simpler by making use of some simple short cut steps either by using the keys ion the keyboard or through the mouse. In order to fill the subsequent cells with some content that is there in the previous cell, instead of selecting the cell and then performing the Ctrl C, Ctrl V operation, you can use the key stroke Ctrl + (single quote) to copy the content in the previous cell to the current cell. If anyone wants to edit a formula in the formula bar, they can directly use the F2 key and perform the changes.

Real life applications for a cash flow worksheet vary widely, from stock analysis to project finance, even the government! This is a real life case study of a financial analyst using a cash flow worksheet at a civil engineering firm to forecast the profitability of a bridge project. It demonstrates some universal components of such a project, as well as one unique way to estimate long term value.

When coming to the share of future toll revenues, Dave gets creative. The company has never done this before and both the toll fares and actual volume of traffic over the bridge are unknown. In a separate tab in his cash flow worksheet, Dave creates two grids. The first is a range of car traffic volumes from 10,000 to 30,000 cars per day (the volume range used by the engineers to build the bridge). He applies a growth rate multiplier and extends the grid to the right for 10 years, multiplying each time step by a growth multiplier. He then builds a similar grid of toll fees and toll growth rates and arrays them to the right for 10 years. Finally, Dave uses his Excel statistical analysis add-in to generate a probability distribution of toll revenues for each year. Dave creates 5 scenarios based on the mean toll revenue, with revenues varying plus and minus one and two standard deviations to get 5 estimated cash flow paths.
