  • Excel can help you crunch numbers with just a few clicks of the mouse… but I’m not talking about basic formulas, like adding and subtracting. Oh, no! This is serious business and with the help of this presentation, you will know how to manage your data, organize it, and dissect it piece by piece. Once you apply those skills into your routine work, you’ll be spending less time staring at the computer monitor and more time working on those other important things on your to-do list.
  • I was expecting two types of groups to attend my session: (1) support staff that handle a lot of the everyday activities in an office, such as budgeting and inventory tracking; and (2) graduate students that are either currently involved or will be involved in data mining. We’ll work our way from the bottom-up. There might be some topics that you will already be familiar with but bear with me as we progress through the presentation. Disclaimer: Any figures that you will see in this presentation are completely fictitious; they are made up.
  • We will start with something basic. How many of you have started entering data into excel and then realized that your row headers should have been column headers and vise versa? Well the transpose button is an easy solution for that
  • A way to take a long string of information into usable dataYou can separate each segment and then merge only those that are needed
  • Useful when you have data in separate spreadsheets with at least one unique identifier in common and you want to combine certain elements together to create one complete dataset.
  • Show how to group dates
