EXCEL TEMPLATES PRACTICE
Michael Liew has worked in the IT industry for more than 15 years in several areas like Data Analyst, Senior Programmer, or Technical Analyst. He is based in the UK and holds a Bachelor Degree in Computer Science.
The goal of these four mini projects is to practice Excel building templates with applications in the real world. Creating templates is a fantastic exercise to improve your Excel skills and boost your confidence with the spreadsheet. Not only you will have implement and combine conditional statements and functions like VLOOKUP or SUMIFS, but also you will practice how to edit spreadsheets with a professional look and feel.
The advantage of this type of projects is that you gain experience with Excel since you will have to solve the same regular problems any analyst encounters when working with Excel. These assignments ask the student to provide a solution to a requirement or problem. You task is to decide and implement what functions and formulas are the most suitable to get the best possible solution.
The templates to build are the following:
1) Invoice generator: given a spreadsheet with 20 000 invoices, you will be requested to create a template to retrieve and display in a professional manner the information of any invoice based in just one field.
2) Budget: build a tool to provide quotes to clients of a car garage.
3) Dashboard: create a tool to retrieve employees sales figures from a database and display them in a graph.
4) Metrics breakdown: given a sheet with several items metrics across 66 columns, build a summary table to display metrics of a selected item during specific months.
The four assignments have a guidelines section where each template assignment is broken down into short exercises. This way, you create the template step by step solving one problem at a time.
WHAT YOU WILL PRACTICE:
1) Find, match and retrieving values from different sheets.
2) Editing the spreadsheet with a professional layout.
3) Nested functions (ie vlookup + conditionals).
5) Real applications of the following functions: VLOOKKUP, SUMIF,INDEX/MATCH, IFERROR, etc.
