One Day Course


A continuation on from the introductory course, this one day course looks at more in-depth functionality and commands in Excel.

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.

What are the 5 things you will get out of the course?
• Move around a spreadsheet using range names & use them to make formulas easier to read
• Create calculations based on a condition
• Summarise data quickly using Subtotals
• Use conditional formatting to show important data
• Use the quick analysis tools to present data more visually

You should have attended the Introduction to Microsoft Excel course at Media Training or have an equivalent working knowledge.
