Mastering Formulas and Functions: Take Your MS Excel Skills to the Next Level

Duration: 90 minutes

Microsoft Excel has more than 300 built-in functions. Unfortunately, most users limit themselves to using just a tiny fraction of them. That’s a missed opportunity for a huge gain in productivity and efficiency—with software most employees already have and use on a regular basis.

Move beyond the basics in this fast-paced and information-packed training session.(more details below)


WHY ATTEND

Category by category, Dennis Taylor will take you through a library of powerful Excel functions—Power, Rounding, Statistical, Text, COUNTIF, Date/Time—and teach you how and when to use each one. You’ll learn how to use functions Microsoft has recently added to the software. Plus, Dennis will give you dozens of time-saving tips and tricks to help you get more done faster.

  • Simplify searching for data in tables with the lookup functions VLOOKUP, INDEX, and MATCH.

    • upper/lowercase changes
    • trailing minus signs, and
    • text/value conversions
  • Gain programming-like capability by mastering the IF, AND, OR, and CHOOSE
  • Deploy the power functions SUMIF and COUNTIF to help you tabulate database totals with ease
