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 ensure 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 ensure that certain fields contain unique entries; 2) use various Excel® commands and techniques to restructure data, reformat data displays, and rectify incorrect data.


Using Excel® Commands to Control Data Input
  • Require That Numerical Data Entered Falls Within Specified Limits
  • Provide Pick Lists to Accelerate Data Entry Chores and Ensure Accuracy
  • Guarantee That All Entries Within a List Are Unique
  • Manage Leading Zeroes in Zip, Numerical and Text Codes
Adjusting Data Layout

  • Quickly Convert Row-Column Layouts Into Column-Row Layouts

  • Convert Data With Trailing Minuses to Negative Entries
  • Combine Data From Different Columns via Concatenation
Changing Data Content
  • Use Text Functions to Extract Data From Long Entries
  • Get Rid of Problematic Extra Spaces That Prevent Efficient Data-Matching
  • Adjust All Uppercase Text so That Just First Characters Are Capitalized
