For a 30-year-old heritage program, there appears to be a lot of life left in the old warhorse that is Microsoft Excel. In fact, some supporters say it recently added what may be one of its most “game-changing” features in years.
By allowing Excel spreadsheets to accommodate new and previously unusable expanded data types, followers speculate that Microsoft may soon be setting up the program to start identifying cell data on a spreadsheet, opening up a new world of Excel functionality. Just imagine if Excel could know you just entered an address, then could group that entry accordingly or offer new rows, tables or other information branching off from that single entry?
An addition like that could ensure Excel is still around handling all your data compilation needs another 30 years from now. You can get versed in all that this venerable app brings to the table now with the training in The 2020 Master Microsoft Excel and Power BI Certification Bundle ($34.99, over 90 percent off).
Over eight courses with nearly 30 hours of content, even novice Excel users can become experts in using Excel’s processing power to complete so many statistical and analytical projects.
Microsoft Excel – Excel with Excel Pivot Tables Bootcamp starts the training, by digging into one of Excel’s most used and misunderstood features — the Pivot Table. Packed with over 200 specific tutorials, this course is billed as the most comprehensive Excel Pivot Table instruction ever assembled, guiding users through the process of entering and analyzing data, formulating conclusions, and then presenting those findings utilizing all of Excel’s abilities.
After firming up your baseline Excel understanding, further courses drill deep into other major Excel areas, with each promising to fully explain their specific focus in under two hours each.
Training covering how to use Power Query to gather data correctly can happen in under 120 minutes. With just 90 minutes, users can get a full exploration using SQL Database Queries to feed your spreadsheets. And after just one hour of study, students will learn both the Top 50 Microsoft Excel formulas as well as the Top 50 keyboard shortcuts to shave time off your Excel sessions.
Finally, the course package offers a close examination of how to supercharge Excel projects with the data analysis and visualization capabilities of Microsoft Power BI.
A nearly $1,600 package of training, the entire Excel and Power BI course collection is on sale at less than $5 per course, just $34.96.
