Business Analysis with Excel Part 2: Connecting Excel to the World of Data


There is so much data ‘out there’ today. In this session, you will learn how to leverage it by connecting various external sources of data into Excel to facilitate your analysis without the need for data entry.

In this session, we will cover Excel’s data connectivity features and show you how to connect to:

• Live share prices and FX rates data (web based sources)
• External databases (Access, SQL Server)
• Files spreadsheets
• Cloud based data sources

Once the data is within excel we can then analyse and relate the data using:

• Table slicers
• Pivot tables using features (covered in Session 1: Make Better Decisions Using Excel Pivot Tables)
• Build out our dashboard boards (covered in Session 1: Make Better Decisions Using Excel Pivot Tables)

This session is suitable for people with an intermediate Excel level and above.
