Description: Many CWU offices use Excel for budgets and other financial applications. There are additional features in Excel that can make you more productive. Excel charts can display data from your spreadsheet graphically, which is helpful for presentations. Excel can also perform basic database functions which may be easier for people to manipulate than an Access database. Excel calls these databases "tables" or "lists" and allow you to organize and analyze information that you already have in a spreadsheet. Separate classes will be held for the Mac and PC versions of Excel as the two are too different to be taught in conjunction.
Prerequisites: Understand the basics of Excel.
Online options: Microsoft also provides free online training for Excel 2010 (PC) here: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/excel-help/excel-help-and-how-to-FX101814052.aspx?CTT=97 and Excel 2011 (Mac) here: http://mac2.microsoft.com/help/office/14/en-us/excel/ with videos and courses. You can also get free training for Microsoft Office programs for the PC via the Microsoft IT Academy. Instructions for setting up an account, logging on to the IT Academy and a class list are available via the Wildcat Connection.
