“Excel can be a very powerful tool for the small business owner,” said Gwen Paul, course instructor. “We try to help small business owners learn to use the software in ways that can help their business.”

The two sessions will provide hands-on training in the use of Excel software. Topics in Part I will include Excel terminology, formatting, shortcuts, function keys and formulas. Part II will include basic payroll, cash flow, running balance, drop down lists and other topics. Both sessions will be taught on computers with Windows 7 and Excel 2007 installed. Participants should have basic keyboarding and computer skills, but no prior experience with Excel is necessary.
