LAMBDA - Using the Ultimate Excel Function From 2022, Office 365 subscribers have access to what Microsoft call - The Ultimate Worksheet Function. The LAMBDA function allows the creation of user defined functions (Lambdas) as part of your spreadsheet, eliminating much of the need for VBA and its associated complexity and security risks. Using LAMBDA, you can greatly simplify complex formulas by breaking them into smaller and simpler user defined functions (Lambdas). Simplifying complex formulas will make your spreadsheets more understandable, maintainable, secure and with less potential for errors. Lambdas and the associated Lambda Helper Functions will radically improve the way complex spreadsheets are written and understanding this innovation is vital for any Excel Power User.
Cloud Database querying using Excel and SQL This is a hands-on introduction to querying cloud-based databases using Excel and explores the simplest way to get data from the cloud with SQL.

Dynamic Array Formulas will be explored in detail, exploring their full functionality. The course will also present useful and practical techniques to enhance skills in more familiar areas; like Charting, and Formatting, Pivot Tables and Macros.
Data Analysis - Excel 365 – Power Query, Power Pivot, Dashboard Production and beyond Excel 365 has heralded an explosion in the tools available for reporting and analysis in accounting. This course will introduce two of the most powerful Excel tools - Power Query and Power Pivot and then use those techniques (with standard Excel skills) to produce an Excel Dashboard. We will examine Excel tools for ‘What if’ and newer techniques in the very important data analysis areas of LOOKUP (especially XLOOKUP) and FILTERING. The course will complete using the Excel Dashboard we created to communicate the results via exchanges between Excel and PowerPoint.
Programming in VBA - Using Microsoft Excel The skills and knowledge acquired in this course are sufficient to be able to create real life working VBA applications within Excel. The learner will be able to work with VBA within the Excel environment to program and automate worksheet operations. Users of Excel up to Office 365 can be facilitated.
