Microsoft Excel For Intermediate Level

Excel is the most commonly deployed spreadsheet package in the world, partly because it comes as part of Microsoft Office. Participants will learn how to use multiple worksheets and workbooks efficiently, and they will start working with more advanced formatting options including styles, themes, and backgrounds.

They will also learn how to create outlines and subtotals, how to create and apply cell names, and how to work with tables. This course also covers advanced charting techniques, use of trendlines and sparklines, worksheet auditing and protection, file sharing and merging, and workbook templates. Finally, participants will learn to work with PivotTables and Pivot Charts

At end of an intermediate training course in Excel, a learner should be able to use some of the more advanced features of the Excel application. It will equip learners to handle tables, images and charts and to build the whole presentation using slide animations and transitions.
