This 2-day hands-on, instructor-led course will be held in our brand new, expanded, computer training facility in Portland, Oregon.
In this course, you will learn the more advanced features of Microsoft Excel. For example, you will learn how to apply and use range names. You will learn how to use the VLOOKUP function to retrieve data from a list, and what to do if your formula returns an error. You will learn how to use auditing tools to track formulas, store scenarios for comparing options, and use problem solving tools such as the FV (Future Value) function and Goal Seek. You will learn how to create a simple form using Excel’s set of form controls. Also, you will learn how to record macros for automating repetitive tasks and procedures. You will learn how to link and consolidate multiple workbooks. You will learn how to turn a list into a Table to work with the list more easily. You will also learn to use Advanced Filters to find data in a list or copy it to another location. You will also learn how to create Pivot Tables to efficiently summarize and rearrange data. And finally, you will learn about the Excel Data Model, a feature that allows you to compile data from multiple data sources into Excel to perform powerful data analysis. You will learn how to add data to the Data Model, and then create PivotTables to summarize the collection of data. Course Preparation: Excel Level 2 or equivalent experience.

I am going to implement many of the methods I learned in this class such as Tables, PivotTables, and Advanced Filters, into my everyday tasks. I had only a very basic understanding of those topics before this class.
