Overview

Work faster and smarter with Excel

It's frustrating to know what Excel can do, but not understand the techniques to accomplish it. In one day, you will learn not only the formulas, database techniques, and macro commands that make work go faster, but you will also learn the tips and keystroke commands the pros rely on to make data more useful and worksheets easier to manipulate.

It's a wise investment

One day never delivered so much practical, real-world computer skills training. You'll improve your productivity tenfold. Complicated charts and graphs that once took hours to compile will now take only minutes to set up and assemble. You'll learn when it makes sense to use a macro, how to debug a macro, and how to create and manage a PivotChart. Key code shortcuts you learn will transform multistep processes into single, simple moves. Even the advanced linking and data exchange operations you once dreaded will become easier.
