1 hour 30 minutes
Learn how to transform data into meaningful, organized tables in Microsoft® Excel®.
If you think that Excel® is all about working with numbers, think again. More and more people are turning to Excel® to help them to manage list-based and tabular data. In many cases they receive, download or import data from elsewhere, and before that data can be used within their business and treated as a credible source of information, it needs to be seriously checked and cleaned. Duplicate entries, nonprinting characters, extra spaces and capitalization inconsistencies are all-too-often present in downloaded and imported data. You'll learn how to deal with and fix all of these issues. You'll also learn about managing lists and tabular based data in terms of sorting (into different orders), applying and saving filters (that let you display only certain items) and summarizing with PivotTables.
