It introduces new concepts for sorting data, and building conditional formulae. If you think you know Excel, this course will show you what you've been missing all these years.

Delegates will leave feeling a new confidence in their Excel expertise and ready to take on new challenges with financial data.

Delegates attending the public scheduled course may choose to use either MS Office 2013 or 2016 on PC and only MS Office 2016 on Mac
