Excel has changed

Excel has changed a lot in recent years but why?

It has changed to meet the data and information challenges that are common to every organisation. Whether you're working in marketing, sales, accounting, HR, or management, data is everywhere in applications, webpages, spreadsheets, reports, and databases.

Data centric Excel training

Many of the most important features of modern Excel did not exist 10 years ago. This means that learning through experienced Excel users and existing spreadsheets alone, may leave you without exposure to important functionality.
