Instructor Susan Young will teach the basic beginner-level class in a hands-on introduction to the versatile Microsoft Excel program

This class is appropriate for those interested in using Excel for personal use or small businesses.

Young will teach participants how to create and format multiple sheet workbooks, work with formulas, and create charts. Participants will also explore templates available in Office 2007 and online, including a checkbook spreadsheet and other practical, time-saving templates.
