Why study this course

This course is intended to help all users become familiar with the more advanced selection of features in Excel.

We will cover how to create and use advanced formulas, analyse data, organise worksheet data with tables, visualise data with charts, work with graphical objects, and enhance workbooks.

This version of Excel incorporates some new features and connectivity options in efforts to make collaboration and production as easy as possible.

This course builds on what was learned in Part 1 of Microsoft Excel 2019/365.

Note: Excel 2019 and Excel 365 are both desktop application versions of Microsoft Excel. Excel 2019 is the perpetual, bought-outright, stand-alone version of the software; Excel 365 is the subscription-based version. Anyone working with either Excel 2019 or Excel 365 will be able to successfully complete this course. Throughout this course you will be using the Desktop app; the course does not cover use of the Web/Online app.
