The first session of this course reviews the concept of creating and using names for cells which is covered in our Intermediate Excel Course. In doing so it also quickly reviews formulas and selections.

The key topics covered include :


This section of the course introduces logical functions. This is a key part of more advanced Excel use. It focuses on the use of IF functions and how they can be combined to produce Nested IF functions and also combined with AND, NOT or OR in more complicated situations.

The key topics covered include :

• Understanding Logical Functions
• Using IF With Text
• Using IF With Numbers
• Nesting IF Functions
• Using SUMIF Function
• Using TRUE and FALSE
• Using AND
• Using OR
• Using NOT


When working with large amounts of data the ability to validate data using Excel is critical. This is especially true when working in combination with logical formulas which require that all data is in the appropriate format to work. This session covers both data validation, which is checking that the data in the cells meets certain criteria and also the ways that you can then highlight data that does not meet the criteria.

The key topics covered include :
• Validating Data
• Understanding Data Validation
• Creating a Number Range Validation
• Testing a Validation
• Creating an Input Message
• Creating an Error Message
• Creating a Drop Down List
• Using Formulas as Validation Criteria
• Circling Invalid Data
• Removing Invalid Circles
• Copying Validation Settings


Lookup functions are another very powerful tool to master when working with large amounts of data. They allow individual items in a list to be found and then the corresponding value from another column or row in the same data table. For example, if working with a series including dates and values of a variable, they offer the ability to find a certain data and have the formula return the value of that variable on the specific date being search for.

The key topics covered include :

• Understanding Data Lookup Functions
• Using VLOOKUP for Exact Matches
• Using INDEX
• Using Match
• Understanding Reference Functions
• Using ROW and ROWS


Excel contains a number of features that allow you to very quickly summarise large amounts of data. This shorter session will show you how to very quickly use these features to create sub-totals and other summary statistics.

The key topics covered include :

• Creating Subtotals
• Using a Subtotalled Worksheet
• Creating Nested Subtotals
• Copying Subtotals
• Using Subtotals With AutoFilter


Worksheets with a lots of content can become unwieldy and difficult to navigate around. To deal with this, Excel gives you the option to organize your data in groups. These allowing you to easily show and hide different sections of your worksheet. You can also summarize different groups using the Subtotal command and create an outline for your worksheet.

The key topics covered include :

• Creating An Automatic Outline
• Working With An Outline


PivotTables are one of Excel’s most powerful functions. They are extremely versatile and make it very easy to extract information from large tables of data without the use of formulas. They are also very quick to use as by moving, or pivoting, fields of data from one location to another using drag and drop functionality they allow you to look at the same data in a number of different ways.

The key topics covered include :

• understanding Pivot Tables
• Recommended Pivot Tables
• Creating Your Own PivotTable
• Defining the PivotTable Structure
• Filtering a PivotTable
• Clearing a Report Filter
• Switching PivotTable Fields
• Formatting a PivotTable
• Understanding Slicers
• Creating Slicers
• Inserting a Timeline Filter


Excel’s Consolidate feature allows you to merge and summarize values from multiple workbooks. It’s a great tool for combining data when several users work with different instances of the same file but can also be used when the data to be consolidated is held in differernt formats.

The key topics covered include :

• Understanding Data Consolidation
• Consolidating Data with Identical Layouts
• Creating a Linked Consolidation
• Consolidating Data with Different Layouts
• Consolidating Data Using the SUM Function
