Time saving tools, tricks, shortcuts and tips you can use to slash your time spent using Excel®

Course Description/Agenda

How much (and how well) do YOU use Excel?

  • Do you struggle trying to get Excel to cooperate with you?
  • Are you the Excel go-to-person looking to take your skill to the next level, thus making you even more indispensible?
  • Are you spending too much time trying to write formulas or just trying to get it to print out right?
  • If you could learn to customize your screen to meet your needs, and streamline your workbooks to the point that Excel seemed to be reading your mind and doing your work for you, would you do it?
  • If you could reduce time spent on Excel by 30%-70%, and actually increase your work output

What would you do with all of that extra time?
Would you like to find out?

(HOT TIP-cut this out and place it by your computer for quick reference)

  9. Right Click on Nav. Tabs (you know, those little arrow keys in the lower left-hand side of your page)
    to jump from one worksheet to another
    Creates a CHART of all highlighted cells!


Here's another quick tip

So you import data from a database, but each time you import it, you have to make the same changes. Why would you do that? You can have Excel “watch” what you do as you make your changes, and in the future, with a push of a button, Excel will make the changes for you! It’s as simple as recording a macro.

Here’s how easy it is (if you don’t already know):

1) Click “Record Macro” It will ask you to name it and give it a place to live. Now you do your thing— import your data and make the necessary changes.

2) Click “Stop Recording”
That’s it!

Wasn’t that easy? You’ll find the “Record Macro” button in the developer tab. If you don’t see a developer tab, we’ll fix that in the seminar.

Next time, import your data, press the button, and SHAZAM! Done.
