A Webinar to Build Businesses
As part of its initiative to enhance the local economy and help companies succeed, the Irvine Chamber of Commerce created Irvine Build Businesses, a series of free webinars it hosts every week. These events provide interactive educational opportunities for interested business owners, entrepreneurs, and individuals in Irvine and beyond. To offer valuable information for these people, the Chamber of Commerce seeks the assistance of experts in their industries, who share their skills with participants. The Excel Consultant team provided our first webinar for Irvine Builds Businesses last month on November 5. If you missed it, you can check out a recording of it here. We are proud to partner with the Chamber of Commerce to help boost local businesses and empower employees.
Integration Innovation: What We’ll Cover
The title of this webinar is “Power Tips for Microsoft Office.” You’re probably fairly familiar with each Microsoft application in the Office Suite—you can write documents in Word, calculate spreadsheets in Excel, make presentations in PowerPoint—but you may not know how to combine programs to unlock their full potential. At Excel Consultant, we’ve found that learning how to integrate applications is a simple but important ability that can be quite beneficial in a business setting. For more advanced cross-functionality, you may need to dig into the code of the programs, but we can show you how to do a lot without even using VBA (Visual Basic for Applications, one of the more basic programming languages in Microsoft).
With the click of a few buttons in the existing interfaces of your favorite Microsoft applications, we can show you how to transform your workflow. For example, we can help you send large tables from Excel to Access (Microsoft’s database management system), email through Outlook from Excel, or place an Excel chart in a PowerPoint presentation.
We’ll begin by teaching you the most common (and useful) keyboard shortcuts, so you no longer have to click or find the right tab to complete everyday operations. Next, we’ll show you how to send emails from Office applications using filing and sharing. This can make office and client communications much simpler and more streamlined.
Furthermore, we’ll instruct you to how automatically share data between Office applications, linking from Word to Excel, Excel to Word, PowerPoint to Excel, and Excel to PowerPoint. We’ll explain how to get data from Word or Excel to Access and use Word mail merge from Excel or Access. During the webinar, we’ll also demonstrate how to import and export tables and other formatted content between applications, using copy/paste, special values, source formatting, and destination formatting. These functions will make analyzing your numbers, creating promotional materials, communicating with coworkers, and more a lot easier.
Finally, we’ll discuss how you can leverage the power of the Cloud to collaborate and increase efficiency in your office. We’ll discuss the Personal and Business versions of Microsoft OneDrive.
