What Will I Learn

In business, it is important that the data managed by an organisation is accessed, manipulated and analysed in a secure and robust manner. Integration with other applications and sharing data between users is now commonplace and detailed data analysis helps to inform and provide important management information.

During the course you will learn how data can be successfully and securely exchanged with outside sources and how it can be shared between multiple users. Advanced data analysis and functions are considered, along with an introduction to macros. The course is designed as a practical course enabling you to receive hands-on experience of these advanced Excel topics. The content will be relevant to both Excel 2007 and 2010.
