Microsoft Excel users encounter repetitive tasks such as reports, data that needs to be updated, or tables that need to be formatted regularly.

Using “Macros,” many of these routine tasks can be automated. Using advanced knowledge of Excel learned with us, they can record the steps or operations that they want to perform, and then press a button to repeat them over and over again (and again).

We all know Excel is essential for any business. When efficiently applied, it is a powerful tool, allowing you to manipulate vast amounts of data, automate tasks, and present complex information; however, you see fit.

We also know how difficult it is to find quality instruction, that is:

  • Easy to follow

  • Teaches you advanced methods that you can quickly put into practice

That’s why we developed our Advanced Microsoft Excel with Macro and VBA course.
