Excel Series: Introduction


2019 has been an extremely busy and fulfilling year already. UPvisor has trained over 100 people in Excel alone. Phew! This shows there is a great demand for Excel skills, and as such, we have identified the need for an Excel series of blog posts.

A quick search on Google also confirms this high demand for Excel help. For instance, it indicates that on average there are 77 Excel searches per day (in South Africa for 2019). Furthermore, there are more than 1.2 billion search results listed for Excel queries!

  1. Templates – the what, why and how
  2. Bullets – different methods to add these dots
  3. Brackets – round, square or curly: understanding the difference
  4. Text to columns – breaking Humpty Dumpty
  5. Drop downs – impress your colleagues and reduce typos
  6. Paste special – going beyond Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V
  7. Useful, but forgotten – unknown or infrequently used functions that can change your life
  8. Office 2016 vs Office 365 – comparing features and price
  9. Keyboard shortcuts – free printable!
