Most people hardly use the huge number of features available in Microsoft Excel. Many are just using Excel as a calculator. This is a gross under use of Excel’s vast potential and feature rich functionality.
Do a quick check, and see if you use these advanced features of Microsoft Excel in your day to day work.
Some of the common things that can be done easily with Excel are:
- Finding the Top 10 Customers or Finding the Bottom 10 Performers in the organization
- Highlight values that are above or below a certain threshold – like all sales above $25,000 to be highlighted
- Sort the values in Ascending, Descending or any customized order – like sorting in order of Manufacturing, Accounts, Sales departments.
- Give Names to Range of Cells, and then use them in formulas for easy referencing and decoding
- Exploit Pivot Tables to Summarize the data and slice & dice it in any way – finding sales by product groups, or calculating productivity by department
- Write Macros to automate routine things that save you a huge amount of time – example creating pivots, charts, tables, and doing complex calculations automatically.
- Use advanced filtering conditions, and be able to filter data using multiple different criteria
- Create fantastic charts that portray the given business situation perfectly. There are over 50 different types of charts to choose from, and each has its edge, advantages and a reason.
- Create management dashboard that are dynamic, and provide a complete snapshot of the key business KPIs in the company – change the chart values at the click of a checkbox or change in a drop-down value
- Use Excel’s advanced What-If analysis to do projections for future, forecasting, trend analysis etc. with ease
- Use Lookup tables to find any value or corresponding value from a table using advanced functions and formulas
