01:44
Ah,
01:46
which is about files and dating Excel
01:49
I I presented to you what types of Excel files exist,
01:55
what our data types and how to create custom dated types than what their names and excel and how to create
02:02
custom names
02:04
or names.
02:06
Then about creating templates in excel or in brother templates, template files.
02:14
I talked about hiding cells and sheets,
02:16
and at the end I talked about how to protect the sheet from billing altered or from somebody who is not authorized to access some daytime your sheet.
02:30
In Model five. I talked about Data Tab,
02:34
and this tab is very important. Contains very important functions because they're crucial for analyzing data.
02:43
Uh, when you have them already entered in your exile sheet. So part off what I talked about in model fires about sorting data than using filters, then why and how to group cells and then howto on group them.
03:00
Then very important thing is sub totals or talked about creating sub totals.
03:06
Then I talked about data validation, which allows you to restrict what can be entered in a cell of in terms of type of data or the values.
03:16
And there's a part of that. There was a talk about how to create dropdown list. Basically

toe allow the user of the file to entering cell just those items that are in the drop down list for that self.
03:30
At the end of that model, it was all about consolidating data from different data sheets or files into one and working with that data.
03:43
So, um, in module six
03:46
Ah, I talked about former thing cells and sheets,
03:52

04:02
then how to use pre existing style that are pretty finding excel, or how to create your own.

so tables within tables because one every worksheet in Excel is actually one big table, but then you have a special entity within Excel that is also called table. And it was all about this.
04:42
Um, next model Model seven was about inserting objects in Excel. So those objects that are not things that you usually put in a cell, which is text or formula or numerical Well, you

05:41
it's much much easier to comprehend what the data actually want to say.
05:46
Module eight.
05:48
Ah, I specifically paid attention toe one thing in
05:54

06:00
some important information from larger data
06:03

06:09
insight in in in what this date actually presents.
06:15

06:26
off. You're off the actual paper on which your worksheet is going to be printed.

Then how to insert headers and footers if necessary
06:34
or needed.
06:35
And finally, how to make sure that your sheet fits on a printed paper in a way that it can be read and comprehended after printing.
06:44
And that a ll the data. You want to be grouped on one sheet of paper? Stay there.
06:50
