Get to grips with Excel

Excel has long been a popular choice for creating spreadsheets, analysing data and creating graphical representations of information. This course can run on Excel 2010, 2013 or 2016 and has more bells and whistles than any version before it, and can be daunting for a novice user. There are few things in life more impressive than a properly formatted and presented spreadsheet, so if you want to dazzle colleagues with your workbook wizardry or automate a process you repeat every day then this is the course for you.
