Description

Excel spreadsheets can be an incredibly powerful tool for analysing data. Many office-based roles provide dozens of opportunities to employ Excel to make sense of muddled data, whether it be removing duplicates from disparate lists or creating powerful management reports from lengthy tables of numbers.

This practical webinar aims to help people who are familiar with Excel, but want to improve their knowledge around data handling.

This is the third part of 5 popular webinars in 2017 covering smart ways to efficiently use Microsoft Excel. This webinar will provide a deeper look into the most effective methods and tactics for handling large sets of data.

During the webinar we will run through brief illustrative examples of several of the tools, functions and techniques which can be used to manage unwieldy sets of data. The session will include:

  • Introduction 
  • Variable names, range names and layout considerations 
  • A brief look at conditional formatting 
  • Flash fill 
  • Four major data tools: 
    • Sort 
    • Filter 
    • Find & Replace 
    • Duplicates 
  • Two useful functions for handling data: 
    • If 
    • Vlookup 
  • Pivot Tables (and why they are not perfect!) 
  • Charts 
  • Case Study 
  • Q&A 

Please note that the demonstration will be given using Excel 2013. However, the version of Excel used in the webinar itself is of very limited importance as the points made extend to all versions.
