Excel 2010 Expert Level 1
Description: Excel 2010 Expert Level 1
Versions: Microsoft Office Excel 2010
Pre-Requisites: Excel 2010 Beginner Level 5
Running Time: 68 Minutes
Cost: $19.99


This course is for the expert user who has good experience with Microsoft Excel or has completed the five courses in our Beginner Series. This course will teach you more about working with functions and formulas. We'll start out by learning about the different function libraries, multiple ways to create functions, the AutoSum and Insert Function buttons, and how to perform string concatenation.

 

Next, we'll learn about relative vs. absolute references, why they're important, and when you should use them. You'll see how absolute references behave when data is copied or you use the AutoFill function. We'll calculate sales tax using an absolute reference.

 

You will then learn how to create Named Cells and Named Ranges. These are handy so you don't have to keep remembering which cell a particular value is in. You'll learn how to use the Name Manager, and see how you can quickly jump around between your defined named cells - a great technique for working with large, complicated sheets.

 

You will learn how to refer to values on other sheets. This way you can share data between the various sheets in your workbook. You will learn about proper Sheet!Cell notation. You will learn how to use Copy > Paste Link to quickly create links between your spreadsheet data. We'll use all of these techniques to build a sales summary sheet.

 

The previous lessons were to prepare you for working with formulas in functions in Excel. Over the next couple of course levels, we'll be examining most of the popular functions in Excel. In today's class, we'll begin by looking at the functions to manipulate and work with text.

We'll start out by learning: EXACT, CONCATENATE, LEN, LEFT, RIGHT, MID, FIND, and SEARCH. We'll use these functions to separate the first name and last name from a column of cells where the user has entered them together.

 

Finally, we'll cover the functions SUBSTITUTE, REPLACE, and TRIM. You'll see how to use these functions to make replacements of text inside of cells.

 

Again, this is the perfect class for anyone who wants to enhance their skills with Microsoft Excel 2010. If you have been working with Excel for a while and want to increase your knowledge of Excel functions and formulas, then this is the perfect class to start with. You should have good working knowledge of the basics of Excel, as taught in my Beginner series. You should also know how to use some of the simple functions, like SUM and AVERAGE.

Of course, if you have any questions about whether or not this class is for you, please contact me.
