Learning how to use Excel.

Copper Contributor

I am trying to do an assignment from my digital workbook, it tells me to go where I store my files and put in EX_2-1.xlsx. When I do this, it tells me that it cannot find it. I know I will be able to do the assignment once I get into the file. I just need help getting there. My instructor was not helpful, she just told me to download it, but there isn't a link to download it from. Can someone please help me with this?

It seems like you're looking for a specific Excel file named "EX_2-1.xlsx" for your assignment, but you're having trouble finding it or accessing it. Here are a few steps you can follow to locate and open the file:

  1. Search in Your Computer:
    • Start by searching for the file on your computer. Use your computer's built-in search feature (e.g., Windows Search or Spotlight on Mac) to look for the file. Type "EX_2-1.xlsx" in the search bar and see if it comes up.
  2. Check Your Email or Course Materials:
    • If you're a student and this file is related to a course, check your email or course materials. Your instructor might have emailed the file or provided a download link in your course materials.
  3. Ask Your Instructor or Classmates:
    • If you're unable to find the file on your computer and it's related to a class, reach out to your instructor for assistance. They should be able to provide guidance on where to find the file. You can also check with your classmates to see if they have access to the file.
  4. Check File Folders:
    • Verify that you've placed the file in the correct folder or directory. Make sure you're looking in the right location on your computer.
  5. Download from Online Source:
    • If this is a shared document or part of an online course, it might be hosted on a website or learning management system (e.g., Blackboard, Canvas). Log in to the platform where your course materials are hosted and look for the file there. Your instructor should have provided instructions on where to find it.


It's important to make sure you're looking in the right place and using the correct file name. If all else fails, don't hesitate to ask for further guidance from your instructor, classmates, or IT support.
