Course Content

Course Aims

Microsoft Excel is probably the most useful office tool available to accounting functions for the simple analysis and manipulation of data. This Introduction training course focuses on the basic functionality of Excel for accounting, including formatting and structuring worksheets, using workbooks, and an introduction to functions and formulas. It is entirely 'hands on', so those attending will get practice in creating and modifying actual spreadsheets.

Who Should Attend

Anyone who wishes to start using Excel in an accounting environment. Note: A working knowledge of using PCs in the Microsoft Windows environment is required, and a familiarity with the Microsoft Excel 2003 interface would also be an advantage.
