How to Excel - Part 3 (For Finance Staff)

Thu 23 Jan 2020


The session will look at more advanced formulas and macros using the recorder and VBA tools.

The formulas covered in this course include SUMIF, COUNTIF and INDEX MATCH which will enable the user to quickly summarise data.

Macros will enable the user to automate tasks within excel. During this session, we will use the example of needing to analyse, sort, split and send data to specific email contacts. Users will be introduced to a series of macros to reduce this process to a few simple steps.

Target audience
