Are you new to Excel and struggling to understand formulas?

Are you tired of manually calculating data in Excel spreadsheets?

Do you want to learn how to use Excel formulas to streamline your work and save time?

If so, this online training session is the perfect solution for you.

Think of any scenario that involves addition, subtraction, division or multiplication and that’s where you’d use a formula.

Once you’ve mastered formulas, you’ll be introduced to functions which are built-in formulas that have been programmed to perform a specific calculation. They can often be used to shorten and simplify what would otherwise be a long-winded manually-entered formula.


  • Creating basic formulas: addition, subtraction, division, multiplication
  • Using parentheses in formulas – the what and why
  • Copying a formula – the gotchas you need to know about
  • Make formulas logical and understandable by assigning names to your important cells
  • An introduction to functions: SUM, AVERAGE, COUNT and SUBTOTAL
  • The SUMIF and COUNTIF function: Add up and count based on criteria
  • Use TODAY, DATEDIF and NETWORKDAYS to calculate and manipulate dates
  • Use CONCATENATE and TEXTJOIN to combine text from multiple cells
