Microsoft Excel 2003 Charting and Templates

                                              This class is for people who want to use Excel to prepare professional charts for business
                                              presentations and reports. In this class you will learn how Excel interprets worksheet data,
                                              and how Excel converts data into a ‘picture’ format. Although Excel has a Chart Wizard to

                                 multiple worksheets in a single workbook or multiple related workbooks, you probably
                                 need to accumulate and summarize data from various sources. The key to successful
                                 consolidation is accuracy. You need to link data sources so you have confidence in the
