Event Description

Using Excel to Create Visually Appealing and Meaningful Reports

No matter what business you are in, a report is a critical tool in your communication armory. As with any communication tool, presentation is everything. Get it right and it offers the reader (typically a CEO, shareholder or project manager) a valuable insight into the key performance indicators (KPIs) upon which a business or project is measured. Get it wrong and you'll end up with something that nobody understands or wants to read.

Join this session with Excel trainer Mike Thomas where you'll learn not only how to turn raw data into meaningful information but also how to present that data in a visually attractive way. This session will provide a solid foundation that you can use to build your own reports. The session will focus primarily on four areas: PivotTables, charts/graphs, the Power View report add-in, and how to present geographic information.

In the PivotTables section, you will learn how to create a basic PivotTable, display numbers as a percentage (no formulas, arithmetic or programming required!), make the PivotTable eye catching and  appealing to read and then group the data (by month or numeric range). In the visual communication (charts/graphs) section, you will learn how to enhance and customize a standard chart ("from drab to fab") as well as how to create infographic-style charts using nothing but Excel. With Excel's Power View add-in, available only in the 2013 and 2016 versions, you'll learn how to create visual reports containing interactive charts, graphs, maps, and other visuals that bring your data to life. The final part of this session will cover Excel's Power Map tool, also available in the 2013 and 2016 versions only, which lets you plot geographic (country, region, state, etc.) data on an interactive 3-D globe or custom map.
