Sign up for exacto’s intensive 1-day course in Excel. We train you to carry out reporting that is easy to maintain and expand, while still looking good. At this intensive course, you become well-prepared to work out your everyday tasks in easier and smarter ways.
The instruction is handled by our experienced teacher Flemming Jørgen Jensen, who has more than 10 years of experience with teaching and professional development in Excel. Before this, Flemming was the controller in a large international company and therefore knows the everyday ins and outs of a budget and finance function.
At the course, we deal with, among other things:
- Automation of extraction and adaptation of data – we work with the newest tools in Excel, including Power Query.
- Preparation of dynamic reporting bases – we focus on minimising time-consuming maintenance when updating.
- Set-up of reporting – we put a sharp focus on the use of pivot tables, cubes, formulas, slicers and timelines, which create dynamic and scalable reporting.
- Presentation of reporting – we look at formatting, colours and structuring of an attractive and user-friendly interface.
