Excel: Basic Basic Basic
Business & Technology
In this class, we'll step all the way back and look at Excel from the basics:
- Adjusting column width.
- Changing font color.
- Force a sheet to print on one page.
- Simple formulas that use data in multiple cells.
- Link a simple formula to data on different tabs.
- What is all that stuff in the ribbon? (We won't cover everything in the ribbon but we'll cover the highlights.)
- Good practices (so that you avoid bad habits).
This is for the Excel-curious; the people who want to change careers and can no longer avoid Excel; the people who have been thrown into Excel and need to get their bearings.
This is a demo / overview / introduction. In 90 minutes, the goal is to provide a sense of what Excel is and what it can do for you. Laptops are optional but not required. Most important is your curiosity and questions.
All ages welcome
This course is most useful for those using Excel 2007 and later.
Excel 2007 introduced a navigation ribbon and nixed the dropdown menus that are part of Excel 2003. Thus, getting around in Excel 2007, 2010 2013, and Excel for Mac 2008 and 2011 is very different from getting around Excel 2003. During our time together, you'll see the ribbon, not the dropdown menus.Cancellation Policy
