I have done a series of posts on Microsoft Excel, targeted largely at beginners, and/or those who use Excel casually and seek to expand their skills a little. MS Excel is a powerful program, which has a host of advanced analytical and math functions, for those who spend a moment exploring them.
What is important about using excel to maximum effect is not remembering how to use each specific function of formula – it is enough to understand the syntax excel requires, and to realize that if you can dream up a use-case, there is most likely a built-in function which can do what you need.
Here, I have combined all of my Excel-related posts to date to make it easy to find what you might need. More will follow. If you have a specific request, let me know, and I will do my best to create a post addressing the topic you are interested in.
This area was created specifically for Mary (you know who you are) to begin with, a friend who has applied herself to the pursuit of learning and personal growth. Mary, you inspire! Hopefully, others will benefit as well.
