To efficiently manage, analyze, and reporting Excel, you need more than traditional ranges of data – you need tables and data models! Two of Excel’s best features about which most users know very little, tables and data models allow you to process large volumes of data into dynamic reports and analytical elements with unsurpassed ease, accuracy, and speed. Far more than just a formatting tool, tables should revolutionize how you work with data in Excel, including serving as dynamically resizing ranges of data, providing a simplified means of writing formulas, and facilitating quick and easy sorting of large volumes of data. Couple tables with data models – a means of joining, or relating, two or more tables together – and you have the recipe for unparalleled efficiency when managing, analyzing, and reporting with Excel, even if your source data lies in other data sources! You do not want to miss this chance to learn how to harness the power of these tools by participating in this program!
