This course is aimed at the excel user who already knows the basics of Excel 2007. This course will help you to go beyond the basics - to reach a higher-intermediate level. With shortcuts, tricks and tips - you will be able to work smarter and faster.
If you want to be fairly competent on the software, then this course will be very handy. Its a lot quicker to be shown things, then to try and muddle through and work things out by yourself. Guaranteed, there'll be some items which we cover, that you have no idea that Excel was capable of doing!
We don't want you to spend a day of your life in the classroom... learn 99 quick and very useful, practical things which you can apply on your job or on your projects.
The target audience is those who have a basic 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.
Where necessary, we provide a spreadsheet - but as long as you have Excel 2007, you'll be able to copy and do exactly what you see on the screen by pausing the video and following along.
The course will take approx 7.5 hours to complete.
Take this course if you want to take your basic understanding of Excel to a higher intermediate-level.

Excel fonts are based on Unicode. To use a language other than English and set up the appropriate keyboard, click the Windows Start Menu, click Control Panel and click Regional and Language Options.
Speech recognition is no longer in Excel 2007 ... use F1 to find out more. But there is Speak Cells. So excel can read your cells to you.
Try rounding 2125.123 to -2 ... the answer is 2100.000. Note - the 2,1000.000 preserves the number of digits of the original number, but rounds two places to the left of the decimal point.
Note - with correlations the answer is anywhere between -1 and +1. If its negative, the relationship is negative eg as age increases, batting averages decreases.... A Positive result (closer to +1) is that as the number of years in sales increases, sales increases.
