Excel 2010 Essentials Course: Introduction

Our first course on Excel 2010 out of three, this introduces the novice and the intermittent user of Excel to it’s basic features and will give you the skills to do simple tasks, functions, commands and formulas. You might not know everything, but you will be able to use Excel efficiently and get the job done.

Excel 2010 Essentials Course :Course Outline

We welcome participants to the first of three workshops on Excel 2010. This is the Essentials workshop, which is followed by the Advanced and Expert workshops. We strongly suggest that novices in Excel attend our Excel Essentials workshop before attempting the following courses. In this workshop participants will learn the basic features of Excel 2010. As per all our computer courses, this is a practical workshop where participants practice what they learn on computers. We also have our pre workshop review form for participants to fill in, giving the trainer an idea of what students already work with and what they need help with. Excel 2010 has increased worksheet and workbook sizes and a new user interface making the creation and management of worksheets and workbooks much easier for the user. Some of this workshop’s objectives are: Understanding the new interface and the Backstage View; creating custom views; using absolute referencing; understanding new Functions; applying conditional formatting and sorting and filtering data. The new ribbon Interface was introduced in Microsoft Office 2007 applications. Each tab in the ribbon contains tools for working with a document or spreadsheet. Selecting the Formula tab will allow the user to edit the contents of a cell. The Status Bar includes information about the worksheet when cells are highlighted. To select the new Backstage view, select the file tab in the ribbon to open the Backstage view. This is where all the commands for creating, saving, and information about the current workbook are displayed. The Backstage view also includes a new interface for printing and sharing workbooks.TIP: There are four views to choose from. Select the View tab on the ribbon to select a different view. Changing the worksheet view does not change the way your worksheet will print; only the way you will view it onscreen. The different views are: Normal; Page Layout; Page Break Preview and full screen. Excel’s raison d’être (reason for being) is its ability to perform mathematical calculations. There are two ways to set up calculations – using formulas or using functions. We don’t want to get too technical here by adding examples of calculations however we spend two modules training participants on arithmetic operators and functions – an essential lesson for novices and those wishing to continue to the Advanced levels. We also teach participants how to build a formula, how to edit a formula and how to copy a formula. Some of the names of functions in previous versions of Excel have been renamed, we teach students the new names as well as time saving tools to make basic worksheet creation even easier. The Auto fill function can repeat formulas or fill in predictive text like days of the week. Sparklines is a new addition to Excel 2010, it allows the user to create cell-sized graphs which can be helpful in showing trends. We round off our workshop with a module on formatting data and a module on advanced formatting tools.
