Introduction to Excel

Introduction to Excel
Microsoft Excel is the most widely used spreadsheet tool in the world. Have you tried Excel before, but do you have a limited knowledge of the possibilities and functions in Excel? Then this event is ideal for you!

Companies within all areas of work use Excel, and thus a knowledge of the basics is often required when you move from university to the industry. Introduction to Excel is a 4 hour course for people who have used Excel at a limited level but need an introduction to cover the basics clearly, efficiently work with the tool, and aquire a knowledge of some of the slightly more technical functionalities. The course consists of short lectures and
longer exercise session where you will have hands-on experience, where the lecturer and possibly a
TA will assist you in solving the exercises. Having finished the course you are familiar with:

• Logical functions
• Lookup- and reference functions
• Applying statistical functions
• Pivot tables
• General formatting
• Cell merging and splitting
• The ”Paste special” functionality
• Figure standards and crossplatform Office work
• Drop down menus
• Print setup
• Handling duplicates
• Filtering
• Freezing rows and columns

You might find it beneficial to attend the event "Udvidet Excel" after attending this event to acheive a deeper understanding of Excel. "Udvidet Excel" is hosted by the same teachers, and will take place on 19/5-2020. Please note that this event is in Danish.

IDA will serve a sandwich during the event.

The location of the event will be announced later. The location will be in the Copenhagen area.
