Back in the late 1990’s, I was employed by a technology company that had a lot of outstanding invoices, in the millions of dollars range. The Collections Department was extremely active, trying to collect on these invoices. They would need to export raw data to run reports, almost daily, and those reports were a real mess. They would have to manually manipulate the data to make any sense of it. Seeing this as a huge time waster, I decided that I would try to automate as much of the process as I could to make their jobs easier. So with the use of Excel Macros, VBA programming and many of the Excel Functions being covered here, I was able to automate it COMPLETELY with the press of a Single Button!! I got quite a bit of recognition for that feat and at one point, I was copied on an email by a colleague stating that “Our resident Genius has created another Masterpiece!”.
Am I a Genius? I honestly have no idea, but it was really nice to be called one, all because I had an understanding of Excel and many of its features. That was almost 20 years ago now!!
My only point in sharing that story with you was to show you what could possibly be in Your future, if you take the time to learn Excel and what it can do for You.
I will also cover Word, Outlook and several other software programs that are not specific to Microsoft. The more You know, the more valuable You will be to those who employ You!!
