Week 1

Learn how to use data analysis tools and techniques to improve your decision making, and you'll practice generating accurate data more quickly. Explore how you can modify Excel to streamline processes and make your work easier. Then discover some great table management features in Excel 2010, discuss how to use data forms with Excel databases, and look at a few alternative database techniques.

Week 2

Tackle data validation techniques—your first line of defense against incorrect or missing data and the logical next step after data forms. You'll practice using whole number, decimal, date, time, list, and other forms of validation, and you’ll even explore the possibilities of custom validation. Then start working with custom controls—graphical objects that help facilitate data input and are sure to impress users. You'll learn how to create standard and drop-down list boxes, check boxes, option buttons, and group boxes. You'll also master the process of creating a dynamic list box

Week 3

Learn how to use conditional formatting to hide errors, to highlight records based on multiple criteria, to track and alert you about due dates, to find the differences between two lists, to shade every other row, and more. You'll learn how to impress your manager by setting up a scorecard, which will show you problem areas in red, possible problems in yellow, and everything running smoothly in green. Then you'll learn how to use Excel's consolidation function to efficiently summarize data from multiple sources.

Week 4

Focus on a few important Excel functions spanning four categories: Logical, Database, Math & Trig, and Lookup & Reference. You’ll also find out all about importing external data from various sources including external databases and the Internet.

Week 5

Learn how to use two types of data tables: a one-variable data table (which lets you substitute just one variable into the formula calculation) and the two-variable data table (which allows you to change multiple aspects of the formula). Then explore three more of Excel's what-if analysis tools: Goal Seek, Scenario Manager, and Solver.

Week 6

Discover how to use PivotTables, which are excellent for summarizing massive amounts of data and viewing different cuts of the information quickly. Finally, you’ll look at the functions available in the Analysis ToolPak, including: the Moving Average and Sampling tools and complete exercises using advanced filters.
