We have listened to our members and are now offering our first PD session to give you 4 hours of PD. Come check out this great event!
TWO GREAT CHAPTER PD EVENTS TOGETHER
Using Excel Charts to See the Bigger Picture
A picture is worth a thousand words and with Excel charts you can make the same come true for numbers. If you even wondered how eye catching charts are created with Excel join us at this session to quickly become proficient with Excel’s built-in charting basics. From there we’ll continue on with many other topics such as: creating Combination Charts, using Trendlines, and AutoShapes, using PivotCharts to create interactive Dashboards. When we’re all done you see how Excel Charts can visually help in communicating complex data at a glance.
Crunching data with Excel Pivot Tables and PowerPivot
If you ever needed to see the “bigger picture” in thousands or millions of rows of data Excel Pivot Tools are your answer. But wait, Pivot Tables can do much more such as consolidating data, creating interactive Dashboards and Reports. Join us at this session where we’ll quickly cover the basics of Pivot Tables and quickly move on to many more topics such as: Ad Hoc Grouping and sorting, calculated fields, Pivot Charts and Slicers and Consolidating data. We’ll also take a look at using Excel’s PowerPivot for Business Intelligence.
