Software training firm InfiniteSkills Inc. releases "Advanced Microsoft 2013 Training Tutorial," a course designed for experienced users of the standard office spreadsheet program. The course teaches a variety of mathematical functions used to perform high-level spreadsheet functions, helping office professionals manage and manipulate data on an advanced level.
Excel 2013, part of Microsoft Office 2013, is the latest release of Microsoft Excel and the first since the release of Office Suite 2010. Key improvements include increased capabilities for working with the internet and Microsoft's cloud services, SkyDrive and Office 365, and new templates for tables and charts.
InfiniteSkills Advanced Microsoft 2013 Training Video - DVD covers key updates in the latest version, teaching how to effectively integrate Excel's new cloud capabilities into a workflow. The course also goes in depth with mathematical functions and other features critical to maximizing Excel's extensive data-management capabilities.
Course author Guy Vaccaro has more than 15 years' experience with Excel and Office Suite training in classroom, manual writing, and computer-based formats. With a focus on Microsoft Office Suite, Vaccaro is especially accomplished in Excel and its uses in web and database functionality.
"The main new thing you're gonna see about Excel 2013," Vacarro says, "is that it's much more entrenched and linked with the cloud. You can use Skydive to access your files from anywhere in the world and Office 365 that allows you to access Office."
After a quick introduction to the course, Vaccaro dives in, getting right to the essential elements of advanced Excel usage. He covers the basics of using mathematical functions to perform various calculations in spreadsheets, paying special attention to IF statements and AND and OR statement— important commands that allow users to program cells to perform certain functions in certain circumstances.
The course continues by exploring more advanced concepts and techniques such as Lookups, which allow users to transport data from one sheet to another, and the new Sparklines which allow users to create miniature charts within an individual cell.
Other chapters cover creating custom views, using functions to manipulate text, working with arrays, working with PivotTables and PivotCharts, Macros, and much more, including several chapters dedicated to advanced functions.
