With Joan Dvorak
Go beyond the basic tasks in spreadsheet software and explore powerful tools available to an intermediate user of Microsoft Excel. Evaluate worksheet design; use features such as conditional formatting and file templates; practice options such as text to columns and remove duplicates to manipulate data; utilize Excel analysis tools such as Autofilter, PivotTables, and advanced formulas and functions.
Participants will analyze data lists by applying sorting, filtering and subtotals. As time permits, we will also discuss formulas and functions such as If, Countlf, SumIf, Vlookup, what-if analysis and data validation.
