Microsoft® Office Excel® 2016: Part 3
w/Carol Whitson 


This course is for those already familiar with Excel 2016, its functions and formulas, a lot of its features and functionality, and its powerful data analysis tools. Now you need to analyze and report on data frequently, work in collaboration with others to deliver actionable organizational intelligence, and keep and maintain workbooks for all manner of purposes.

This course builds off of the foundational and intermediate knowledge presented in the Microsoft® Office Excel® 2016: Part 1 and Part 2 courses to help you get the most of your Excel experience. The ability to collaborate with colleagues, automate complex or repetitive tasks, and use conditional logic to construct and apply elaborate formulas and functions will put the full power of Excel right at your fingertips.
