Microsoft says that upto 70% of users surveyed use Excel to maintain a database or large lists. To be truly proficient in Excel, you must be familiar with these tools to manage data efficiently. It’s all the more important as data collection has become more automated and you’re getting swamped with tons of data. But what can you do with all that data? You need to know how to re-arrange the data (sort), see just what you want to see (filter), create quick summaries (subtotals), restructure fields containing too much data (text to columns) and eliminate redundant records. If you are setting up new lists, you need to know the powerful validation tools that keep out bad data from the start and how to drastically reduce data entry with drop-down clickable lists.
You can do more with Microsoft Excel spreadsheets than just calculate data – you can tackle powerful database needs with ease too! With just a bit of know-how, you can take advantage of the power of Excel to validate data, sort data (based on content, color, or icon), insert automatic subtotals, filter the data to see just what you need to see, restructure columnar data that has been improperly grouped, eliminate duplicate records in a flash, and use powerful expanded functions to analyze the data in your database.
