Week 1

We'll explore the Excel Options dialog box, set up your Quick Access Toolbar, and take a look at the status bar and its customizable features. Then we'll explore data forms and databases, and look at a few alternative database techniques. We'll delve into advanced formatting and data forms, and you'll practice using a data form to search for and view records that match specific criteria.

Week 2

We'll tackle data validation techniques. You'll practice using whole number, decimal, date, time, list, and other forms of validation. After that, we'll explore custom validation. Then it's time to work with custom controls—graphical objects that help facilitate data input. 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

You'll discover how to use formula conditional formatting. We'll work through nine different practice exercises that explore row conditional formatting. You'll see how to use conditional formatting to hide errors, highlight records based on multiple criteria, find the differences between two lists, how to set up a scorecard, and more. Then we’ll learn about consolidating and outlining, including how to use automatic and manual outlining to view or hide different levels or sections.

Week 4

We'll focus on predefined calculations spanning four categories: Logical, Database, Math & Trig, and Lookup & Reference. We'll take a look at the Insert Function dialog box, the IF function, nesting functions, the DSUM function, and the VLOOKUP function. Next you'll see how to use the built-in Query Editor, and do an import from an external database that combines two database tables into a single import. Finally, you'll learn how to perform a web query.

Week 5

You'll 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 we'll explore three more of Excel's what-if analysis tools: Goal Seek, Scenario Manager, and Solver. We'll practice using Scenario Manager and put Excel's Solver to work.

Week 6

You'll discover how to use PivotTables, and practice both methods for creating them. You'll also learn how to edit a PivotTable, how to filter the table to create individual reports, how to format a PivotTable to make it reader-friendly, how to insert a Timeline, and how to create and use calculated fields and items. Finally, we look at the functions available in the Analysis ToolPak, including the Moving Average and Sampling tools.
