About This Course

This Microsoft Office Excel 2007 Essentials Training Course contains three levels of instruction to walk you through performing many time-saving tasks in Excel, beginning with an introduction to the new results-oriented interface.

You will learn everything from creating professional-looking charts to sharing data with enhanced security and managing your spreadsheets more effectively.

In this course, you’ll learn from a combination of quick tips and detailed instruction on using Excel for team collaboration and creating templates to work smarter, not harder. You will learn how to create professional-looking spreadsheets through modifying the worksheet layout and formatting.

And, of course, you will learn about harnessing the power of Excel formulas with an entire section devoted to the anatomy of formula.
