Spreadsheets are a vital tool in personal and business. They are particularly useful for calculations and for managing lists. Over time, Excel has also gained considerable strengths in charting, printing grids of data and even holding diagrams for presentations.
This is a gently paced introduction to Excel fundamentals for people who have not previously been involved in work or roles that depend on Excel awareness and skills. We discuss how the program behaves when you type into it, the organisation of the menus and keyboard shortcuts, calculating with formulae.

We talk about the approaches to laying out and working with worksheets, calculating with formulae.
