About This Course:
Many Excel® users set up their own worksheets and, although they might be frequent users of this powerful software, overlook more efficient ways of using validation controls to insure the accuracy of their data collection efforts.

If they are getting their data from other sources, they might not always like the way the incoming data is structured and formatted and they need quick ways to get that data into the shape most useful to them.

This webinar helps Excel® users in two major ways: 1) reduce the potential mistakes created during data creation by establishing validation controls that can limit the scope of data, provide pick lists with drop arrows, and insure that certain fields contain unique entries; 2) use various Excel® commands and techniques to re-structure data, reformat data displays, and rectify incorrect data.

This webinar will utilize GoToWebinar®, an internet active tool which allows the speaker to walk through examples in real time. This will be the best way to follow along with the program and a link will be provided for you prior to the program date.
