Course Description

Advanced Excel 2007 is a course aimed at the excel user who is fairly competent on the software but is just looking for a few more handy tips and tricks to really get to know what this software can do. If you are handling data, or have the responsibility for analyzing data or presenting information in a useful format - reports for your team, or managers etc., then this course will be very handy.

We don't want you to spend a day of your life in the classroom... learn 4 useful, practical things which you can apply on your job or on your projects.

1. Goal seek and 'what if' analysis

When working with worksheet models - do you have the answer you want, but must work backward to find the input value that gives you that answer? Goal seek will help you. If you have to analyse scenarios for forecasting - what if X happens, instead of Y? The 'what if' section will help you.

2. Data Tables

Data can be confusing and difficult to interpret or understand if it's not presented in logical format. Data tables can really help.

3. Using Pivot Tables

A pivot table is an interactive worksheet table that quickly summarizes large amounts of data using a format and calculation methods that you may choose yourself.

4. Extended graphics

Analyse the trends that are apparent and create charts to present information clearly for work reports, essays and assignments.

The target audience is those who are at an intermediate level with Excel and want to learn other handy functions and features. We use Excel 2007 only in this course. If you have Excel 2003, this course will be difficult to follow as although the functions and features exist in 2003, the layout changed very dramatically between the two versions. Excel 2007 isn't too dissimilar from 2010.

A booklet with screen shots is given in lecture one, so that you can follow step by step what we do in each lecture. We also provide a spreadsheet with each lecture - for you to practice what was done in that lecture/

The course will take approx 2-3 hours to complete.

Take this course if you want to take your intermediate-level understanding of Excel to an advanced level.

What are the requirements?

  • Students will need to have Excel 2007 installed, as this is the system used in the teaching
  • We provide you with a spreadsheet which is pre-populated with data, so that you can try the tasks and activities given in the lecture.

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Use Goal Seek and "What if" Analysis
  • Create and use Data Tables
  • Create and use Pivot Tables
  • Extended Graphics

What is the target audience?

  • This is for those who already have an intermediate knowledge of Excel and want to take it further - using Excel 2007
  • This course is not suitable for "beginners" to Excel
