Excel 2010 Expert Level 8
Description: Excel 2010 Expert Level 8
Versions: Microsoft Office Excel 2010
Pre-Requisites: Excel 2010 Expert Level 7
Running Time: 1 Hour, 8 Minutes
Cost: $24.99


This course is for the expert user who has good experience with Microsoft Excel or has completed the five courses in our Beginner Series plus the previous seven Expert Level classes. This course covers several different Excel features.

We will begin by learning how to use Worksheet Protection. This will allow you to lock or unlock specific cells in your sheets, controlling exactly which cells the user can edit or modify. You can also hide your cell formulas.

 

Next you'll learn how to encrypt and password protect your entire workbook file. You will see how to set passwords to that the user must specify to open (read) or modify (write) your workbook file. You can protect the structure of your workbook and the layout positions of the windows.

 

You'll then learn advanced copy and paste techniques. You'll see how to copy a range of cells using a click-and-drag method. We'll discuss what all of those paste Smart Tag options mean. You'll see how to paste formulas vs. values, how to transpose axes, paste with or without the source formatting or borders. We'll learn more about pasting a link between two cells. You'll see how to paste a range of cells as a picture (image) which is real handy when you're pasting a spreadsheet fragment into a Word document or a PowerPoint slide. You'll learn how to perform a mathematical operation on the values in a cell when you paste over it.

 

In the next lesson, we'll learn all about the Office Clipboard and how it's different from the standard Windows clipboard. You'll see how to collect multiple items on the Clipboard, and how to paste them back in any order you like - or all at once. You'll see how to undock the Clipboard pane. Finally, I'll show you a trick for copying and pasting a formula to/from the Clipboard - not just the value in a cell.

 

Next we'll learn about the Fill and Fill Series commands. You'll learn how to Fill a value across (left, right, up, down) a row or column. You'll see how to Fill a series with a linear or growth progression. How to Fill a series of dates (day, weekday, month, year). You'll see how to Fill based on the trend that Excel sees, and how to specify the step value and stop value for your Fill. Finally you'll learn how to Fill values across multiple sheets in your workbook.

 

Next we'll focus on Data Entry Forms. These allow you to set up a nice, simple interface for users who might not have a lot of experience with Excel. They can add, edit, and work with the records (rows) in your spreadsheet without having to know how to use the entire Excel interface. You'll see how to find the Forms button and add it to your Quick Access Toolbar (since Microsoft didn't include it on the Ribbon in Excel 2010). Then you'll learn how to set up your Form, add records, edit records, delete records, and so on. You'll learn how to navigate between your records and perform basic searches to find records.

 

That is what is covered in Excel Expert Level 8. Plus, of course, there are lots of little tips and tricks thrown about here and there in the lessons (too many to list here). If you have any questions about whether or not this class is for you, please contact me.

Student Interaction: Excel 2010 Expert 8

Richard on 7/20/2011:  Excel Expert 8 covers several different features. Topics covered include: - Protecting Worksheet Contents - Encrypting Workbooks with Password - Advanced Copy & Paste Methods - Paste Special Options - Using the Office Clipboard - Fill & Series Fill - Customizing the Quick Access Toolbar - Data Entry Forms - Lots More!
Christine Pigeon on 7/25/2012: In a Pivot Table can we use data from different tables or worksheets?

Reply from Richard Rost:

Yes, absolutely. When it comes time to select your cell ranges you can click on different sheet tabs to select the cells.

Parien on 8/23/2012: Do you have captioning for Deaf viewers?

Reply from Richard Rost:

No, I'm sorry, but I don't. There hasn't been much demand for it, and it would take a LOT of effort to add captioning to my videos. I have the ability to display captions with the software that I use, but someone would have to type all of that in.

Laurie Jones on 12/12/2013: Is it possible to create a formula that automatically updates. For example: My formula ='July Budget'!G36+'Aug Budget'!G36+'Sept Budget'!G36+'Oct Budget'!G36, is there a more efficient way to add subsequent months to the formula in all of the cells of a monthly report?
Anonymous on 5/1/2014: Hey Richard, How is (regular) Paste different than Keep Source Formatting? Thanks!
