Excel Expert Level 3
 Description: Excel Expert Level 3 Versions: Recorded with Microsoft Excel 2010. Valid for 2007 to 2021. Pre-Requisites: Running Time: 1 Hour, 33 Minutes Cost: \$9.99

This course is for the expert user who has good experience with Microsoft Excel or has completed the five courses in our Beginner Series plus Expert Level 1 and 2 classes. This course will teach you how to work with logic functions in Excel.

We will begin by learning about logical (boolean) values in Excel. You will learn about TRUE and FALSE and the various core logic functions, such as And, Or, and Not. You'll see how to determine whether or not an invoice is paid, whether a customer should get a collection letter, whether an order should be shipped, and whether a charge should be added to a credit card batch. There will be a lot of examples in this class, since understanding these functions is critical for making your Excel spreadsheets smart.

Next, you will learn about one of the most powerful functions in Excel: the IF function. Knowing how to use IF properly will open up a whole new world for your spreadsheets. You'll be able to make decisions with your data and provide different results based on conditions. We'll learn how basic "If/Then" reasoning works in Excel. You'll see, for example, how to charge sales tax for a customer IF they reside in your state. You'll see how you can take a student's average and give them a Pass or Fail grade.

Next you'll learn how to nest multiple IF functions together to select from multiple options. We will assign a letter grade to each of our students (A-F). You'll learn how to create time sheet calculations that cross over midnight (difficult to do without IF). You will also learn how to calculate regular and overtime pay for employees.

You will learn a bunch of different functions to determine the contents of a cell. Is the cell blank? Does it contain a number or text? Is there an error there? These functions include IsBlank, IsError, IsText, IsEven, IsOdd, IsLogical, IsNumber, IsText, IsNonText, IfError, and more. You can use the IsBlank function, for example, to determine whether or not to use "Mr.", "Mrs.", or "Mr. & Mrs." for a mailing list, depending on which names you have (husband, wife, or both).

Again, this is the perfect class for anyone who wants to learn how to work effectively with logic functions including the IF function in Microsoft Excel. Mastering the IF function is one of the most important things you can do while learning Excel. Of course, if you have any questions about whether or not this class is for you, please contact me.
