Friday! Excel Workshop at Cook County Higher Education

Microsoft Excel Workshop at Cook County Higher Education

Friday (Feb 20th) from 5-8p.m.

Don Bremer will walk you through how to use comments, create conditional formatting, work with IF statements, link workbooks, insert headers & footers, sort lists, do more with charts, and create mailing lists within Excel.         

Excel is a software program capable of creating and editing spreadsheets that are saved with a .xls file extension. For example, with a spreadsheet you could create your own payroll, balance your check book, organize a large amount of data in an easy to read format, and much more. This is done by adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing the values in the spreadsheet to view overall totals and create graphs based on that data.

Lecture and Hands on Lab          

Cost workshop is $60.
