Microsoft Excel is a spreadsheet program. While you can use it for tables and calendars, it is primarily used to track data and perform calulations: inventories, raw data, financial transactions and records. It can even be used to build simple databases.

The prospect of using Excel can be intimidating, mainly because many of us have some degree of anxiety about mathematics. This guide explains Microsoft Excel in four stages: Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced, and Expert. Each stage has several  modules, so you can learn in easy steps, or easily find the topic you need. The stages have been organized based on likely need for SBC-Jax students and don't necessarily correspond to the levels as defined by Microsoft. Feel free to skip around and explore.

This guide is intended to help you learn and become comfortable with Microsoft Excel 2010 on the PC. Older versions or Mac versions of Excel may work in a similar way, but the steps might be different or certain features might be missing.

Microsoft recently released version 2013 of Microsoft Office suite; training will be announced shortly before we upgrade.
