Writing Better Excel - Handling Data (On Demand)


Excel spreadsheets can be an incredibly powerful tool for analysing data. Many office-based roles provide dozens of opportunities to employ Excel to make sense of muddled data, whether it be removing duplicates from disparate lists or creating powerful management reports from lengthy tables of numbers.

This practical webinar aims to help people who are familiar with Excel, but want to improve their knowledge around data handling.

During the webinar we will run through brief illustrative examples of several of the tools, functions and techniques which can be used to manage unwieldy sets of data. The session will include:

  • Introduction
  • Variable names, range names and layout considerations
  • A brief look at conditional formatting
  • Four major data tools:
    • Sort
    • Filter
    • Find & Replace
    • Duplicates
  • Two useful functions for handling data:
    • Choose
    • Vlookup
  • Pivot Tables (and why they are not perfect!)
  • Charts
  • Case Study
  • Q&A


Attendees will gain knowledge, by example, of many of the tools offered by Excel for managing data. They will also understand the application of several of those techniques in a small case study.
