We call this our advanced Excel course, but perhaps it should be called intermediate-to-advanced. This two-day course is aimed squarely at those who have already learnt to use (and love?) Excel, but who suspect that it can do much more than they currently use it for. We'll aim to show you that your suspicions are correct! 


Delegates should already have a good working knowledge of Excel (one way to achieve this would be to attend our one-day introduction to Excel course). Note that the course uses Excel 2013, although if you're using Excel 2010 or 2007 you'll still find the vast majority of this course useful (you can see what's different about Excel 2013 here).
