What other learners have said about this course
"I really enjoyed the training, it was clear and easy to follow."
"It was a very well delivered course. I enjoyed it"
"I needed to format (and lock) around 170 separate spreadsheets, so setting up the macro once, then being able to run this many times saved so much time. I worked out that it would have taken me over 8 hours in total to do this manually, whereas it only took around two hours with the macro."
