Take Your Spreadsheet Skills to the Next Level

Many government employees use Microsoft Excel® only occasionally for updating figures on a monthly report, creating a budget, or preparing mailing lists.  Being comfortable using Excel is a great skill to have, but becoming a more knowledgeable user is even better.

When you master some power-user tricks, you'll be more productive and valuable at work.

While it is important to play around with Excel and try different functions, having an expert walk you through the process is so much better.

During this webcast, you’ll get a step-by-step demonstration of some key Excel features that can truly advance your skills and boost your productivity.

What You Will Learn

  • Customizing the Ribbon and Quick Access toolbar
  • Data sets vs. tables – which to use and why
  • Conditional formatting
  • Sorting and filtering data
  • Using AutoSum to total data quickly
  • Steps to grouping and subtotaling data
  • Building charts and using Sparklines to create visuals

You and your entire team will benefit from this informative program, so be sure to register today!

While attending this program is FREE, reservations are required.
