Data Analysis with Excel
If you’re using Excel primarily to store or organize information, you’re only scratching the surface of this powerful program. Discover some of Excel’s more advanced capabilities in this demonstration-based class. We’ll discuss how to get data from a Web page or external database into your spreadsheet, use "pivot tables" to instantly summarize large amounts of data, and "lookup" data from one spreadsheet column into another. We’ll also show you some formatting techniques that will make your reports look more professional. Time permitting, we’ll discuss how Excel’s "solver" functionality can automatically calculate the answers to difficult math problems. This is not a beginner’s Excel class; students must have Excel experience. (Our demo will be done on a PC using MS Office 2003; the skills you’ll learn will transfer easily to more recent versions of Excel but may not apply to Mac-based systems.)
