Excel: Performing What-If Analysis

Class has ended

Instructor: Terri Nee-Holtz

For more advanced projects, you may want to consider the types of what-if analysis: scenarios and data tables. Rather than starting from the desired result and working backward, these options allow you to test multiple values and see how the results change. Scenarios let you substitute values for multiple cells at the same time. You can create as many scenarios as you want and then compare them without changing the values manually. When each scenario is selected, it will replace the values in the spreadsheet with its own values, and the result will be recalculated. Data tables allow you to take one or two variables in a formula and replace them with as many different values as you want, then view the results in a table. This option is especially powerful because it shows multiple results at the same time.

Save Time and Create Efficiency with Object Linking and Embedding, Macros, and Mail Merge

Class has ended

Instructor: Terri Nee-Holtz

* Linking permits the two-way passing of instructions and data between applications allowing users to integrate data from different applications. Object linking allows users to share a single source of data for a particular object. When the source is updated, all the documents using the data are updated as well.

* Learn to create macros to help you automate a task by storing the series of commands and functions needed to perform the task. You then run the macro to repeat, or "play back," the commands.

* Use mail merge to create and print letters and other documents that are sent to many recipients. Each document has the same kind of information, yet some of the content is unique.
