Microsoft Excel Training when you need it

Microsoft Excel is perhaps the most important software application used in business today.

Excel spreadsheets are excellent for working with business information. Data is inserted into individual cells in rows or columns, which can then be used for both simple and complex calculations using formulas.

The ability to sort and filter your data is also a key feature of Excel spreadsheets. Once assembled, information can be displayed visually using various charts to add meaning to data and add emphasis to your business reports or marketing material.

Microsoft Excel FAQ's Frequently Asked Questions

Microsoft Excel FAQ's

Microsoft Excel is a spreadsheet program used to store, organise and manipulate data.

Excel’s column and row interface provide tools for working with numbers, text, and dates. Calculations, charting tools, pivot tables and macro functions allow you to manipulate your data.

A range of data analysis tools helps you track and visualize your data for greater insight. Understanding how to work efficiently with Microsoft Excel is a key skill required in almost any business or organisation today.

Just about anyone who uses a computer. Excel is a bit like a Swiss Army knife. It has a range of tools so you can use it for so many different tasks. Some common uses for Excel are:

  • Sorting and Filtering Lists
  • Creating Charts
  • Budgeting
  • Statistical Analysis
  • Summarising Data

These are just some of the uses for Excel, there are many more. Excel has a place in just about any business role you can think of, from Business Analysis to Sales Summaries, Attendance Tracking to KPI Reporting. Skills you learn in Excel are transferrable, so you can continue to use and build on them as you progress through your career.

Have you ever wondered why the Excel for Dummies books are so popular? After all, you didn’t get this far in your career by being a dummy, did you? Well, mostly it’s because many of us are self-taught, using Google to find out how to use a function, or we are shown how to use Excel by a work mate.

Although this can be helpful, it also means we spend a lot of time on trial and error, or we are just picking up somebody else’s bad habits.

These habits then spread further across an organisation, so that you might see an entire department working on inefficient, poorly constructed Excel worksheets.

At this point, you might head to the bookstore or do an online search to find an Excel for Dummies book to help with those tricky Excel problems. That’s a step in the right direction, we use reference manuals ourselves. The problem is that it still takes time to find the information you need.

Our Excel courses are designed to show you the key features and tools you need so you can get back to work and apply them right away.

Attending a Microsoft Excel with Keystroke Learning will show you how to use the most efficient methods to achieve your daily tasks. Not only that, but you will discover best practices and shortcuts to make your business tasks even quicker, so you can get on with your day. Our goal is to help you get to the point where you are focussed on the task at hand rather than the tool you are using.

Typically, one of our experienced trainers will walk you through the features and functions of the software, then you will try them out on your own, with tips and guidance on getting the best out of the features. We also encourage participants to ask lots of questions to help you get the most out of your learning experience.

You’ll receive a manual to take away at the end of the course, as well as exercise files so you can practice later, or just to jog your memory when you need it.

It’s big, really big! In Excel versions from 2007 onwards, a spreadsheet has over sixteen thousand columns and well over 1 million rows.

If you want to be specific, it’s 16,384 columns X 1,048,576 rows. That’s over 17 billion cells in one worksheet.

Don’t worry, you will probably never need to use anywhere near that many, but isn’t it nice to know you could if you wanted.

This is a common problem. For example, if you double-click on the Home tab, the ribbons disappear. This is because when you double-click a ribbon tab, you set the ribbons to Auto Hide. The easy fix for this problem is to simply double-click any ribbon tab to display the ribbons again. This also applies to Word, PowerPoint and most of the other applications in the Microsoft Office suite.
Simply put, a PivotTable is a tool used to summarise large amounts of data quickly and easily. For instance, if you have 10,000 rows of Sales data and you want to look at the trends, a PivotTable can break it down, turning your raw data into useful information for your reports and presentations. Many people find PivotTables a bit intimidating at first, but once you get the hang of it, you will find them invaluable.

Nope, you’re good. These hash symbols are used in Excel to indicate that the number is too big to fit into the cell.

The solution is to either change the number formatting (usually by removing decimals) or to widen the column to fit.

This second option is generally the most convenient, and it can be applied to multiple columns at once.

No, but you can use Conditional Formatting to achieve the same thing. In fact, conditional formatting is very flexible, and it can be used in several ways, including changing cell colours, adding Data Bars, and even traffic lights for KPIs.

Your learning doesn’t stop once you have completed your course.

We hope you will continue your experience by taking some time to practice what you have learned and apply it to your own situation and environment.

If we have done our job well, you may be inspired to learn even more by attending another course. If you are looking for something other than Microsoft Excel, we have a comprehensive range of courses available for you to choose from.
