Course Overview

Course requirements

Learners must have used Google Sheets before to create calculations, basic functions (e.g. SUM) and Absolute Cell References (e.g. $B$4). Ideally a learner will have attended our Intermediate Google Sheets Core Level 2 course previously.

Learners will be required to sign in to their Google account and will therefore need to bring details of their email address, password and a means by which they can receive their 2-Step Verification Code (e.g. mobile phone).

What you will learn

On this one-day advanced level course, you will learn:

  • Partial Absolute Cell References
  • Functions
  • Range names
  • Data validation
  • Conditional formatting using a formula
  • IF Functions recap
  • Nested IF functions
  • IFS
  • If there's time...INDEX & MATCH
  • Using an IF and ISNA and ISERROR
  • Using IFERROR
