Getting data into Excel
Data doesn’t always come in properly formatted Excel spreadsheets. Before you can analyze data in Excel, it first needs to be in a usable format. In this hands-on session, we will cover the importance of data types, delimiters and fixed-width columns to make the import process as smooth as possible. This session is geared toward Excel beginners, though anyone is welcome.
