Course Content

Overview of the various components that make up Excel. Workbooks and Worksheets. Cells, Columns and Rows. Name box and Formula Bar. Office Ribbon and Menus. In addition, we will look at key concepts that are essential to understanding and working with Excel. Such as: The Active Cell; Keyboard Shortcuts; The difference between Highlighting, Replicate and Moving Cell content; Entered Values vs Formula and making the most of your mouse right-click function.
Understanding how Excel stores Text, Numbers and Dates as well as the importance of using Data Ranges. Key Essentials that are not often taught but critical in understanding how Excel interprets and works with our Data
Working through the most efficient ways to enter, check and edit your Data. This will include: Cell navigation; The correct use of the Tab, Enter and esc Keys; Cut, Copy & Paste; Undo & Redo; Spell Checker.
Maximising the use of the Excel Autofill feature to populate an Excel Spreadsheet. I.e. Copying cells, generating a Series and replicating Formulas.
Basic Cell Formatting of Font, Fill, Borders, Alignment (Merging & Wrapping) and Numbers. We’ll also show you some neat shortcuts that many advanced users are unaware of, such as: Format Painter, Repeat Formatting and the difference between Delete and Clear All.
Numbers, Dates, Currency and Percentage. Understanding that Number Formats can be a façade, i.e. what you see is not what you get. Working with Excel can be very frustrating if you don’t understand this!
Adjusting Row height and Column width. Ways to auto-adjust all column headers at the same time. Inserting, Deleting and Hiding Rows and Columns, plus being able to Freeze the Top Row so that it’s always visible when scrolling.

The basic operations of Adding, Subtracting, Multiplying and Dividing. Remember BODMAS? If not, we’ll remind you, it’s important! Explanation of the difference between Formulas and Functions. Intro to the 5 basic functions of Auto-Sum, Average, Count, Max and Min. Copying and Replicating Formula and understanding the critical difference between empty and zero value cells. Again, this is key to understanding calculations in Excel, which even many Advanced users get wrong…

Difference between using Page Layout and Print Preview to set and change Print settings. Details on adding Custom Headers / Footers, Repeating header Rows, printing gridlines, Page Numbers and Print Scaling, plus setting Print Areas and Printing Selection.

Using a combination of these features to make working with large spreadsheets a lot more manageable and easier. Using Filters to extract specific Data and copy this to a New Spreadsheet. (A combo of 4 shortcuts can do this in seconds!)

Intro to creating Graphs and using Conditional Formatting.

Intro to Excels Golden Rule and the subsequent requirement to lock a cell reference in a Formula by using Absolute Cell References. ($A$2)

A sneak peek at this most Powerful Excel Tool.
