VO Workshop: Excel 101

May 26, 2021, 1:00 - 4:00 PM

Organizing data.  That is what Excel can do for you. Excel’s long list of programs and functions are meant to save you time. Instead of adding up 50 columns or rows of monthly expenses by hand, Excel does the math for you.  By using Excel, you will save a great deal of time at your job and in your personal life, and it is guaranteed to be more accurate than something you could have done by hand.  

Learning Objectives

  • This workshop will cover the very basics of Excel 
  • You will learn how to manage worksheets
  • How to use a great selection of tools to build useful spreadsheets
  • You will also learn most commonly used shortcuts  

What to Bring

You will need to have Office 2016 or above installed on your own computer.  Earlier versions will work; however, they will look slightly different than what we will be using.

This session is virtual so please attend with the capability to participate on Zoom and the ability to work with the Excel program simultaneously.
