If you work in any role that entails a laptop, chances are you’re going to need to use excel at some point in your working career or another. Excel is a piece of software developed by Microsoft. It’s essentially a set of spreadsheets you can use for various purposes in your working life. It features calculation tools, pivot tables, and a macro programming language – all these things can come in useful for your work in some way!
So, how can you get to grips with excel? Admittedly, this can be a relatively intimidating piece of software for new users who aren’t familiar with how it works. Many of us will open it up, just to stare blankly at the seemingly endless number of empty fields or wonder how to combine excel files in a quick and simple way. But the good news is that it is designed to be user friendly and when you get to grips with the basics, you’ll be good to go and will get a whole lot of use out of your new skillset.
There are plenty of different training courses out there that will help you to get to grips with Excel.
