Tables and data models are needed to efficiently manage, analyze, and report in Excel which goes beyond traditional ranges of data. Harness the power of these tools in this course.

Two of Excel’s best, but little known, features about tables and data models allow users to process large volumes of data into dynamic reports and analytical elements with greater ease, accuracy, and speed.

Far more than just a formatting tool, tables should revolutionize how one works with data in Excel, including serving as dynamically re-sizing ranges of data, providing a simplified means of writing formulas, and facilitating quick and easy sorting of large volumes of data. Couple tables with data models—a means of joining, or relating, two or more tables together—and the recipe for unparalleled efficiency for managing, analyzing, and reporting with Excel is available.
