VO Workshop: Excel - Basics

octobre 12, 2016, 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Everybody needs to use numbers to do analysis. Whether you are tracking volunteer hours, counting donor dollars, or planning spending for the month, you need to keep track of numbers and use them to plan for the future. Excel can be used to conduct planning, manage budgets, create charts, analyze usage data, and keep records.


This workshop is for you if you have never used Excel before and want to learn why so many people think it’s so great. Afterward, you will likely find that your newfound skills allow you to save hours every week that you used to spend scratching your head over a calculator, freeing you up to do what you really love.

Learning objectives:

  • Create a new workbook and new worksheets in your workbook
  • Understand and use some of the different cell formats, like text, currency, percentage, date, and time
