Why study this course

This course is intended to help all users get up to speed quickly on the advanced features of Excel, Microsoft’s powerful and easy-to-use spreadsheet program.

This course builds on what was learned in Part 1 and Part 2 of Microsoft Excel 2019/365.

We will cover how to automate worksheet functionality, analyse and present data, audit worksheets, work with multiple workbooks, and import and export data.

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

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.
