Is analysis paralysis bogging you down?  Are those rows and columns of data hiding answers? This is the class that teaches you to ask questions to find those answers.  Using a couple of sample databases, you will start by reviewing the basic data functions of sort,  filter, form and subtotals.  You will then learn about slightly different formulas (IF statements and arrays) and discover how to link data from other pages or other files.  Errors will become history.  And you will learn other ways (pivot tables, data tables, goal seeking and what-if analyses) to get that answer. You are welcome to bring your laptop and your problem files to work on in class.   Prerequisite:  Excel I or a really good familiarity with basic math and formulas (sum, average, min, max, etc.)
