Managing Data in Excel
This course shows you how to take basic rows and columns of data and turn it into useful information that can be incorporated into the decision-making process. We start with Excel’s simple basic Database features of sorting and filtering data and then look at subtotals and nested subtotals. From there, we explore one of Excel’s most exciting features – the pivot table. The course than discusses how to use Database functions and apply conditional formatting to data.
