MS Excel Advanced

In business, it is important that the data stored by an organisation is accessed, manipulated and analysed in a secure and robust manner. Integration with other applications and sharing data between users is now commonplace, making security an essential consideration in spreadsheet design.

During the course you will learn how data can be successfully and securely exchanged with outside sources and how it can be shared between multiple users. Advanced data analysis and functions are considered, along with an introduction to macros and VBA. The course is designed as a practical course enabling you to receive hands-on experience of all topics covered. The content will be relevant to Excel 2007, 2010 and 2016.

By the end of the course you will have an understanding of:

  • Analysing Data: Using IF Statements, Data and Pivot Tables
  • Macros: Recording & Running Macros and Assigning Macros to Buttons
  • Sharing Workbooks: Consolidating Data, Conflicts of Shared Data and Administration
  • Template and Protection: creating templates and protecting Excel files
  • Importing from External Sources such as Word, Access and Powerpoint. Introducing Dynamic Data Exchange
