Overview of the Sessions
Using Formulas to Analyse Your Data
If you’re already familiar with SUM, basic calculations and absolute cell references, then this session will take you onto the next steps with calculations including statistical and analysis functions.

- Using the Paste Function
- Common Functions: Average, Min and Max

This 90-minute session is designed for Excel users who are confident with the basics of Excel, wishing to take the next steps in formula writing. Most Excel users are familiar with writing formulas that reference cells by their column letter and row number. Although common this is not usually the best way!
Range names can be used in place of cell references, making formulas easier to write and understand as cells are 'named' by the user.
Requirements: You must be confident with writing basic formulas both by using Autosum and writing formulas from scratch.
You must also be confident using Autofill to copy formulas while using Absolute Cell References to fix key cell references in your copied formulas (using the dollar sign i.e. =SUM(A2:A14*$B$1).
If you are not confident, consider attending our 90-minute Excel Level 1 Creating Formulas course.
What you will learn:
- The benefits of using Range Names instead of cell references to fix cells in formulas.
- Applying newly created Range Names to a formula you have already written.
- Editing or deleting Range Names
- If there's time: Using Range Names for navigation
You can also mix and match with our other Live Online Learning courses: Excel Core Level 1, Excel Level 2: Pivot Tables and Charts (though do check course requirements before booking), Word Core Level 2, and Outlook Core Level 2. We have also developed a range of Live Online Learning for our Leadership and Personal Development programmes that you may be interested in.
