Excel Tables, Pivot Tables & Pivot Charts

In this course the student will learn how to convert rows and columns of data into a table, and then use Excel table features to manage that data independently from the data in other rows and columns on the worksheet. One table can be created to manage all of your data, or if you want to manage several groups of data, you can insert more than one table in the same worksheet. Table features include: sorting and filtering; formatting table data; inserting and deleting table rows and columns; using a calculated column; and displaying and calculating table data totals.

You can group, sort, and filter pivot table data, perform calculations within the pivot table, and add and remove subtotals and grand totals with ease. And finally, you can create charts that can be filtered on the fly just like the pivot table.

Built-in Functions are formulas that Excel has predefined. These functions are designed to quickly perform calculations with a minimum of effort on the part of the user.

There are over 200 built-in functions in Excel 2007 and over 300 in Excel 2010.
While a few commonly used functions were covered in Excel I, II, and III, this course covers a broader spectrum and introduces the student to a wide range of useful and versatile functions that most users haven’t discovered yet. It will also cover tips and tricks on how to combine several functions to add even more outcome possibilities.
