What you will learn

Microsoft Excel is a spreadsheet application which you can use to store, manipulate and present data. This course is taught through a mixture of demonstration and hands-on practice. You will learn how to:

  • use other options to create a wider range of functions
  • use relative referencing and absolute referencing to control which cells in your spreadsheet are used when you copy a calculation to other cells
  • create Range Names for parts of your spreadsheet and use them in formulae
