The correct answer to this question is B, Character. The other answer choices number, label, date and time are valid data types. The Microsoft Office program is the designer of the Excel program. This program is essential for all workers to attempt to learn, because it has become a standard in many industries.

Excel is a program that allows the user to calculate cells to keep a total of the system. Although the user may be entering characters into the cell of the Excel program, it is not a data type that Excel defines. This is why B is the correct answer.

B is the answer to this question. Character is not a valid data type in Excel. If you would try to place a character and you would try to compute it, you will not get a regular answer. The best thing that you can do is to make sure that you know exactly what you have placed so that you will not encounter an error. It will be easy to place a number, especially if you are going to use that number to compute. It will also be easy to place a label because this can be computed and will be read by excel too. Placing date and time will also be expected, especially Excel can also be used by different companies to keep track of everything.

B is the answer to this question. The only thing that is not valid when you are trying to use Excel is character. Excel is normally used when you want to tabulate or compute data. You cannot tabulate or compute the different characters that are available.

Microsoft Excel is known to be a spreadsheet program that can be used to create different calculations. This program is known to be very helpful for a lot of businesses.

They use it in order to record their income and all of the things that they need to pay for. They also use Excel in order to plan their budget for the weeks to come.

In fact you can adapt Excel to your own purposes but to let it calculate cells you must keep to its known system. You have numeric type. This is for calculations to be made, such as totalling different sums entered. Bascially there are three types of data in cells: labels, values, and formulas.

Characters is not a data type although you may well be entering characters to label cells. Therefore the correct option to choose from those listed is B. character is not an Excel data type.
