Descripción

Assuming a basic knowledge of Microsoft Excel, this hands-on step-by-step spreadsheet course guides participants through commonly used business applications such as forecasting techniques, advanced database functions, logical tests, Pivot tables and what-if analysis. In the final week we look at the recording, running and basic editing of VBA macros.

Temario

What will I learn?
  • Review of writing arithmetic formulas - precedence of operators and the proper use of brackets
  • The formula for compound interest (the most important basis of financial mathematics)
  • Goal Seek - this tool has many and varied uses when working with mathematical formulae, often making it much easier to get answers to difficult questions.
  • Calculating depreciation using Goal Seek and without using the built in functions
  • Calculating depreciation using the built in functions DB and SLN
  • The use of the IF function in Excel to analyse and interpret input data - e.g. grading student marks, calculating discounts, and wage bonus calculation.
  • The use of nested IF functions is covered extensively to deal with more complicated problems.
  • Filling in an order form with the aid of drop-down lists, automatic price lookup and calculation of discount
  • The use of the database functions (DCOUNT, DSUM and DAVERAGE) to produce an automatically updating monthly report
  • Analyse tabular information using Pivot Table Wizard (for example data gathered about voting patterns in an election)
  • An introduction to recording and writing simple Visual Basic Macro programs and suggested uses of simple macros
  • The use of Scenario Manager in a forecasting environment

By the end of the course, you will be able to:

  • use Intermediate level and some Advanced level facilities of the Microsoft Excel spreadsheet package such as Goal Seek, Scenario Manager, the VLOOKUP function, Pivot Tables and simple Macros
  • use DSUM, DAVERAGE,DCOUNT functions, using multiple extraction criteria to summarise information in a database table
  • use complex nested formulae and logical tests in a business context (e.g. working out bonus payments linked to performance)
  • design tree diagrams to analyse situations where more complex examples of nested formulae and logical tests are required
  • demonstrate an understanding of the variety of solutions that exist within Excel to common business scenarios; be capable of selecting an appropriate one.
