Course Description

Microsoft Excel has hundreds, if not thousands, of functions and features. This course aims to cover some of the best – that is the ones I find most useful. In one hour, I am going to cover the simple-to-use but powerful functions that I use most often.

This online CPE webinar covers following key topics:

  • Basic features including products and powers
  • Key date functions including the calculation of due dates and days past due
  • Generating random numbers and random dates
  • The new IFS functions (new to Excel 2019)
  • Text functions 
  • The most useful logical functions and IS functions
  • How to create a drop-down list 
  • An introduction to Pivot tables
  • The new XLOOKUP function

These functions are easy to use, and, unless your role is extremely specialized, they are probably the ones you’ll use 90% of the time.

I hope you find the course helpful.
