Seminar - Upgrading to Excel 2007
Description: Upgrading to Excel 2007
Versions: We will learn with Excel 2007, and will cover all of the new features. If you're used to Excel 2003, XP, 2000, or even Excel 97, you will be just fine in this seminar.
Pre-Requisites: Excel 101 strongly recommended
Running Time: Over Three and a Half Hours (3 hours, 38 minutes)
Cost: $39.99


This seminar is for the person who wants to learn what's new and improved in Excel 2007. We will begin by covering the new menu interface called The Ribbon.


You will learn about the Quick Access Toolbar and how to customize it with your own buttons.


Next you'll learn about the upgrades and changes to Excel 2007, for example, Excel can now handle much, much larger spreadsheets (rows and columns) and is faster at calculations. We'll discuss all of the upgrades and enhancements.


We'll learn about all of the new features on the Office Button, which is the replacement for the File menu. We'll also talk about all of Excel's new file formats, including XLSX and XLSM.


There are a whole ton of new settings on the Options Menu. This is the replacement for Tools > Options. We'll cover all of the important ones.


Next we'll start going over the different Ribbon Tabs, starting with the Home Tab, and we'll look at all of the new features. A lot of the changes involve new locations for old Excel 2003 features. I'll point out many of these.


One of the features that has received a major improvement is Conditional Formatting. You're no longer limited to just three formats. You can have an almost unlimited number of conditions, plus you can use color bars, icons, and lots more. We'll spend a whole lesson on this.


Data in Excel can now be stored in something called a Table, which is very similar to a Table in a Microsoft Access database. We'll learn all about these, in addition to the upgrades to Sort & Filter.


No seminar on new Excel features would be complete without a lesson covering Charts & Graphs. There have been a lot of new enhancements here.


We'll learn about all of the changes to PivotTables and PivotCharts.


There are a lot of excellent new enhancements that Microsoft made in the area of Graphics & Illustrations. Working with Pictures, Clipart, Shapes, and SmartArt has never been easier. There are a ton of new formats and styles available.


We'll cover all of the items on the Insert Tab including Text Boxes, Headers & Footers, WordArt, Signature Lines, Inserting Objects, and Symbols.


I'll show you how to work with Themes, which are new collections of color schemes, font sets, and effects in Office 2007. I'll show you how these work in conjunction with styles to create professional-looking spreadsheets.


We'll cover all of the changes to Page Layout in detail, including Margins, Orientation, Paper Size, Print Area, Breaks, Background, and Print Titles.


There are several New Functions in Excel 2007, including IFERROR, SUMIFS, AVERAGEIFS, and COUNTIFS. I'll show you how to use all of these.


I will show you how to Get External Data into Excel and keep it linked to the source data. We'll import some Microsoft Access data. Then I'll show you how to pull down real-time data from a Web site (like this stock portfolio data) and then refresh it with one click.



We'll go over the new features on the Data and Review tabs, including the new Translate button.


Finally, we'll go over any other minor features and function that we missed in the previous lessons, like the Name Manager, Zoom Slider, and the new Microsoft Office Online Templates.


Plus there are a lot of extra, small tips and tricks that are thrown in throughout this seminar - like keyboard shortcuts and other timesavers. If you use Excel 2007 at all, or you're thinking about upgrading, then this seminar is definitely worth your while. 

This seminar is pretty long (over 3.5 hours) but it's broken up into 22 easily managed lessons of about 8 to 15 minutes each. You can site down, watch a lesson, review the material, play with it yourself, and experiment. Do a little bit each day. It's long, but it's comprehensive - you won't miss a single step as I've recorded everything from start to finish. Of course, if you have any questions about whether or not this seminar is for you, please contact me.
