Excel 2010 Beginner Level 3
 Description: Excel 2010 Beginner Level 3 Versions: Microsoft Office Excel 2010 Pre-Requisites: Excel 2010 Beginner Level 2 Running Time: 1 Hour, 40 Minutes Cost: \$9.99

This course is for the novice user who has little or no experience with Microsoft Excel except for my Excel Beginner Level 1 and Level 2 courses. We will begin by learning about Functions, what they are, and how to use them in Excel.

We will learn about the SUM function and how to use it to add up a whole column of cells.

You will learn several other popular functions as well, including Average, Count, Max, and Min. You'll also learn how to move a whole block of cells.

You will get lots of practice using these different functions, and learning lots of tips, tricks, and shortcuts for working with functions in Excel.

Next we'll learn about Styles & Themes and how we can use them to make our Excel spreadsheets look professional and uniform.

You'll learn about Page Layout in Excel, including page layout view, margins, orientation, page size, print area, page breaks, background images, gridlines, and headings.

We'll see how to insert Illustrations into our spreadsheets. We'll start learning how to insert a picture or a piece of clip art. We'll learn how to format that image, change brightness and contrast, and more.

Then we'll learn how to insert shapes, format those shapes, add text to those shapes, draw lines with arrowheads, and then work with WordArt styles.

Finally, we'll learn all about SmartArt which is a great new feature in Office 2007 which lets you create cool, artistic diagrams and flowcharts.

Again, this is the perfect class for anyone who is new to Microsoft Excel 2007 and has finished my Excel Beginner Level 1 and Level 2 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.

 Richard on 1/1/2010:  What are Functions, How to Use Functions, Sum, Average, Count, Max, Min, Styles & Themes, Page Layout, Insert Illustrations
 julie smith on 3/5/2012: I find these courses very easy to follow and informative. I am enjoying the lessons and learning heaps. Thank You
 Kethix on 3/6/2012: can you format a cell that is not storing information?Reply from Richard Rost:Yes. Obviously you won't SEE any foreground (text) color, but the format will save in the cell.
 Patrick Woo-Ching on 12/3/2012: I'm trying to calculate dates to have a sum equals to the age of that entered birthdateReply from Richard Rost:Patrick, I don't understand what you're trying to do. Can you be a little more specific? Are you trying to calculate someone's current age based on their date of birth? If so, I cover that in Excel Expert Level 2.
 Richard Rost on 3/9/2013: FOUND MISTAKE: There is an error in the video. At around time index 10:30 after I've inserted a new column to add June, I forgot to update the formulas in cells H6:I8. The totals for the TOTALS are wrong. The ranges need to be expanded to include the new month. Sorry for that. Thanks to Sean R. for catching that mistake.
 Marla Hatton on 3/13/2013: I want to total a row of numbers and after the total get an average how do I do that.Reply from Richard Rost:Use the SUM and AVERAGE functions... exactly how I cover them in this class. It doesn't matter if you're working with rows or columns.
 scott morford on 5/28/2013: I didn't have a view button on top of my ribbon like you did that allows you to change the layout view so you can see the margins better. you were talking about it around the 2 min mark of the videoReply from Richard Rost:What version of Access are you using?
 scott on 5/28/2013: im using 2010Reply from Richard Rost:So you're missing the VIEW tab, next to the REVIEW tab? That tab should be there on all installations of Excel 2010 and 2013, so unless you or someone else customized your Ribbon, all I can suggest is to restore the Ribbon to its default state. File > Options > Customize Ribbon > Reset.
 scott on 6/4/2013: Ok, I think I figured out the problem. I'm using Microsoft excel starter 2010, and I guess it doesn't have all of the features as Microsoft excel 2010. So I guess my new Question would be, should or do I need to upgrade to the regular version of excel to follow along with your lessons, especially the more advanced courses?Reply from Richard Rost:Excel Starter Edition is extremely limited. It lacks MOST of the advanced features that I'll be covering. You will definitely want to upgrade unless you want to make the most basic of spreadsheets. I recommend Excel 2013.
 scott on 6/10/2013: Ok thanks, that's what I thought. I'm going to work on trying to get the upgrade for free. Or if you know of any way to get a discount for the upgrade Id like to hear.ThanksReply from Richard Rost:Sorry, I do not. I have an Office 365 subscription which I feel is the best way to go about it - most economical, and you always get the most up-to-date software.
 scott morford on 6/12/2013: That's ok, I actually just got Microsoft office professional plus 2013. So trying to follow along with the excel 2010 lessons, just using 2013.
 angela metelitsa on 12/15/2013: The Max function allows you to find the largest number in a range of numbers( your column) etc. but how can you find the 5 largest numbers in your range- how can you change the formula for that
 angela on 1/7/2014: You didn't answer my question.. how do I get the 5 largest numbers in a range- you show us how to get the largest but how would you get the 2 largest or 5 largest etc. thank you
 Karen Rantala on 10/7/2014: when using the page breaks in lesson 5 of excell beginners, the page divided into 4 and the text was missing half or all. Plus my page got larger and now my ribbon has only the headers and not like tabs.
 Rajiv Dass on 11/19/2015: Excel 2010 Beginner 3, Lesson 5(00:18) You pronounced "Gridlines" as "Guidelines".
 ROBERT Hopkins on 6/25/2017: 2016 version no clip artReply from Alex Hedley:From MS.- Clip Art now powered by Bing Images- Add online pictures or clip art to your file
