About this workshop

With the right questions and a clean dataset in-hand, the time has finally come to find the answers to your questions with analysis in Excel.

This free, 2-hour workshop gives you hands-on practice with data analysis in Excel. You’ll practice applying some of the most commonly used Excel actions like Regular Tables, Pivot Tables, VLOOKUP, Charts, and Conditional Formatting to your dataset to extract the answers to your questions - and maybe prompt some new questions.

Make sure to join us next week where you’ll turn your findings from Excel into easily communicated visualizations when we Visualize Data in Tableau. We’ll see you there.


You’ll leave this workshop knowing:

  • When, why and how to use regular tables and VLOOKUP
  • How pivot tables work, and how to use them to quickly create dynamic aggregations, slices, and filter
  • Common Excel visualizations like bar charts, pie charts, line charts, and conditional formatting
