Advanced Spreadsheets Using Excel

(3 hours)

“Countif and Vlookups were new to me but easy to grasp thanks to the course and very helpful, hopefully, I will use them in work” Mr X

We will build on your knowledge of Microsoft Excel and teach you how to construct a clear, concise, and informative expert spreadsheet that can be used in any business, club, or personal use situation. You will be introduced to some of the more complex operations within the program. Follow our step-by-step instructions as we produce a multi-sheet workbook that will be used to record a real-life activity before we look at performing a range of complex analysis actions on the results.

Course Contents

  • Lesson 1: Spreadsheets Recap
  • Lesson 2: Advanced Formulas and Functions
  • Lesson 3: Vlookup
  • Lesson 4: Pivot Tables
  • Lesson 5: Multiple Worksheets and Graphs
  • Lesson 6: Final Task

The final task of this course is the ability to use a pre-configured spreadsheet to set up formulas and retrieve data. The task is based on the features you have learned through the lessons and a recommendation is to complete each function in the spreadsheet in order, so the task flows correctly.

In the task, you will be asked to carry out calculations using functions like COUNTIF, VLOOKUP, and Pivot tables combined with Conditional Formatting and the creation of graphs using the data provided.

Learning the skills of using these functions and tables will allow you to make the tasks generally quicker and potentially more accurate.
