What is Basic Microsoft Excel ?
The Online Basic Ms Excel course is designed for delegates who are unfamiliar with basic formulas and formatting. Basic formulas refer to, for example, the ‘plus and minus’ functions. This course also helps if the Excel screen is still a scary environment for the learner who doesn’t understand all, or indeed any of the functions he sees.
