Take your Excel skills to the next level at our pivot tables training
November 16, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND!
Heard of pivot tables but have no idea how to use them? We want to help you take your Excel skills to the next level with a half-day session on November 16 at DePaul University, 14 East Jackson Blvd.
We’ll start the day with Excel and teach you how to clean your data, use string functions and formulas and get data ready to create a pivot table. We’ll then teach you how to use a pivot and what kind of analysis is possible.
The training will start at 9 a.m. sharp. There’s a limited number of computers on site, so we can only fit 25 people into this training.
This workshop costs $10 for Headline Club members and $20 for non-members. The session sold out last year so make sure to Register on Eventbrite and let us know you’re coming!
9:00 – 10:05 a.m.: Intermediate Excel
10:20 – 11:10 a.m.: Pivot Tables
11:10 – Noon: Extra Credit – Working with data that has you stumped? Bring it to brainstorm solutions with colleagues and presenters
