Excel 2007 Basic Level 5
Description: Excel 2007 Basic Level 5
Versions: Microsoft Office Excel 2007
Pre-Requisites: Excel 2007 Basic Level 4
Running Time: 63 Minutes
Cost: $12.99


This course is for the novice user who has little or no experience with Microsoft Excel except for my Basic Level 1, 2, 3, and 4 courses. Today's course covers a wide variety of topics that didn't fit into any other lesson, but are important to learn.

We'll start by learning how to insert hyperlinks, text boxes, WordArt, signature lines, and other objects into our sheets.

 

 

Next, we'll learn how to insert symbols and other special characters into our sheets - including foreign language letters.

 

You will learn how to work with Headers & Footers. You'll see how to manually create a header, enter in your own text, and use special codes to represent the page number, total number of pages, date & time, and more. You'll also see how to use the built-in Header & Footer templates.

 

Next we'll learn how to work with large spreadsheets. You'll learn how to freeze panes (the top row or the left column) so you can scroll around and still see the headers in your sheet. You'll learn how to split your sheet into two so you can work on two sections at once.

 

You'll learn how to work with borders and gridlines. You'll learn how to change the visible borders in your spreadsheets, and choose whether or not to print gridlines.

 

You'll learn how to merge cells (merge and center, merge across, unmerge), change cell orientation, rotate text, and use the Format Painter to quickly copy cell formats.

 

We'll learn how to put comments in our cells so you can store additional information in your spreadsheets. We'll see how to edit, delete, and permanently show or hide the comments.

 

You'll learn how to use Excel's research tools to spell check your sheet, use the thesaurus, translate words, and even download real-time stock quotes from the web and insert them into your sheets.

 

Finally, you'll learn how to download spreadsheet template from Microsoft Office Online. We'll download a calendar template, an invoice template, and a mortgage calculator template. There are thousands of templates online that you can choose from.

 

Again, this is the perfect class for anyone who is new to Microsoft Excel 2007 and has finished my Basic Level 1, 2, 3, and 4 courses. If you have little or no experience with spreadsheets, or you just want to get familiar with how Excel 2007 works, this class is for you.

Of course, if you have any questions about whether or not this class is for you, please contact me.

MUHAMMAD FAHAD RAZA on 1/6/2010: Dear Sir,

sir I want to thank because you realiy helped those poeple who has got lots of problems in office for work.
again thanks from my side.

 Pauline on 3/5/2010: Hi Richard,
The research section in the lesson is very interesting. It helped me to understand how to connect to the Web for a specific item.

 Lynn Robbins on 10/7/2010: I found the Excel 2007 Basic courses through 5
to be well done and useful!

 Lynn Robbins on 10/12/2010: Looking forward to more
new Excel and Access; the original videos are very good;Just looking for the new look of Office.
WHAT program did you use to make
the Handbooks??

Reply from Richard Rost:

The Handbooks were written in Microsoft Word. I used HyperSnap for the screen shots.

brent on 9/15/2012: You suggest at times to create your own work sheet of the example you have created. Do I have to use a separte computer while taking this course to create my own worksheet of the lesson, or is there a method to crete my own worksheet for the lesson on the same computer at the same time as the lesson.

Reply from Richard Rost:

Well, one of the reasons why I keep my videos small (640x360) is so that you could place them on one side of your screen while still working with Excel on the other side. If you have a modern monitor (19" or larger) you shouldn't have any problems doing both at the same time. No?

jenny fernandez on 2/10/2013: In Lesson 2, in Object, I can't get the small icon. It comes in large, and i cant make it small. Any ideas? Thnaks
