Excel Formulas — They Can Do More than Just Math 

Formulas are the essence of Excel. They can take large quantities of data — numbers, dates, text, times — and combine them however we want, anything from the simplest 2+2=4 to formulas on the frontiers of science and financial engineering.

While the jargon can be intimidating, Excel formulas are really easy to write once youknow a few common sense rules and some tips to avoid errors.

This program willdemonstrate and explain them, covering:

  • What Excel formulas can do, which may be more than you think;
  • Formula syntax, including what’s required and what’s optional;
  • The difference between Excel formulas and functions;
  • Tips for entering formulas accurately and making sure they’re correct beforeusing them;
  • How to copy a formula from one cell to many;
  • When you need to use absolute cell references to make copied formulas correct,and how to write them;
  • How to use simple functions like SUM and COUNT in formulas; 
  • Tips for avoiding errors and locating them when they occur.

There will be plenty of time for questions, so come prepared.
