The course starts with functions and data lookups, as these components of Excel help the spreadsheet creator with advanced calculations and import functionality. We then cover conditional formatting for highlighting important cells based off of conditions. Sparklines are also covered so that the learner can get a quick data visualization of the information stored in each worksheet.

Pivot tables are one of the most beneficial tools in Excel, and this course covers pivot tables both basic and advanced features. It then moves on to pivot charts, which are graphs that can be used with pivot table data.

Analysis tools in Excel 2019 are some of the most advanced and useful to users that want to run complex reports. Excel has three What-If analysis tools that can be run on your data and provide reports on goals that give answers to your problems. The Solver and Analysis Toolpak are two add-ins that expand on these tools, and they are also covered in this course.

The final lessons cover data validation, troubleshooting, querying data and macros. These lessons provide ways to work with data and clean up unstructured information. This course fully covers advanced features in Excel so that you can create complex spreadsheets for business or individual use.

  • Lesson 1: Outlines, Custom Views, and Templates

    Microsoft includes numerous templates that you can choose from, and many times these templates include formulas and outlines that you can use to build a spreadsheet.
  • Lesson 2: Mathematical Functions

    Mathematical functions are a part of the spreadsheet creation process, but Excel has several that do the calculations for you. You can manually create your own functions or use the pre-created Excel functions.
  • Lesson 3: Data Functions

    Data functions (also called information functions) work with providing feedback about cell data based on the function used and the condition criteria. These functions include error information, numerical information or other information that tells you the type of data contained in a cell.
  • Lesson 4: Data Lookups

    Excel has three ways to search for data within a spreadsheet: vertical, horizontal and both. This lesson will focus on these different search methods.
  • Lesson 5: The IF Function

    This lesson will focus on how to use the IF Function. An IF statement returns 'true' or 'false' as a result, and you can display data based on this result. Within an IF statement, you can have other functions and formulas to create complex, embedded calculations that display data based on evaluation of several rows and columns in your spreadsheet.
  • Lesson 6: Manipulating Text

    Excel has numerous numerical and logical functions, but text functions used to manipulate text are often used. These functions are usually used in combination with formatting functions to automatically and dynamically stylize the way information displays in a cell.
  • Lesson 7: Exploring Conditional Formatting

    With conditional formatting, you can change colors and styles of a cell based on the results of a formula. Formulas return values, and Excel's conditional formatting features will take these results and change a cell's style based on a true or false value.
  • Lesson 8: Working with Sparklines

    One reason to use Excel over other spreadsheet software is for its numerous graphing and visual data representation tools. Sparklines are one graphing tool that allows you to display a visual representation of data within one cell.
  • Lesson 9: Linking To and Consolidating Worksheets

    Excel has functions that let you retrieve and consolidate data across multiple sheets and multiple workbooks. These features let you calculate data in different workbooks and worksheets without the need to copy and paste data to the same location.
  • Lesson 10: Importing and Cleaning Data

    This lesson will focus on how to import and use many forms of data.
  • Lesson 11: Pivot Tables

    Pivot tables have a bad reputation of being complex and difficult to understand, but recent versions of Excel have made working with pivot tables much easier.
  • Lesson 12: Continuing to Work with Pivot Tables

    This lesson will continue exploring various uses of Pivot Tables
  • Lesson 13: Pivot Charts

    A pivot chart displays data in various ways so that you can review and define the story that your information tells you about your business. A pivot chart complements this data by giving you a visual representation of the information in your pivot table.
  • Lesson 14: The What-if Analyses

    In business, you must make projections and changes that could increase revenue. Before you make any changes, you should analyze data. A What-If analysis lets you create scenarios where you can ask a question from your data and get results based on the data and the scenario that you input.
  • Lesson 15: Goal Seek and Solver

    The Goal Seek tool in Excel helps you find answers to possible outcomes. You control these outcomes using variables and values until you find a number that matches your goals.
  • Lesson 16: The Analysis ToolPak

    The Solver tool offers ways to find solutions to your problems, but the Analysis Toolpak takes analysis a step further and lets you perform evaluations on complex statistical and engineering problems.
  • Lesson 17: All About Data Validation

    You can control the type of data entered into a cell by using Excel's data validation tools. These tools will block other formats and reduce the number of mistakes made when you rely on others to enter the right type of data into a record.
  • Lesson 18: Using Get & Transform to Perform Queries

    The 'Get & Transform' feature imports data from a third-party source and pours the data into a worksheet. This could be a dozen records or thousands of records.
  • Lesson 19: Troubleshooting and Auditing in Excel 2019

    Excel has some internal features that help you find dependent cells and troubleshoot issues.
  • Lesson 20: Exploring Macros in Excel 2019

    Macros are useful for repetitive steps you perform on every spreadsheet. You can record macros in the main Excel interface or create highly complex automated macros in Microsoft's proprietary Visual Studio for Applications (VBA).
