CCIFC-SZ Training on Excel for Finance: From Layout to Advanced Formulas

The French and the German Chambers of Commerce in Shenzhen

have organized a training in English on :

Excel for finance:
From layout to advanced formulas

In this training, we will introduce a logic approach for using Excel 2007 for finance. In addition to the explanation of classical functions in Excel 2007, we will insist on the logic for constructing files, for using formulas and for checking data.

The training is divided in two independent and complementary modules and will be based on a practical approach and exercises. A detailed training support will be given for each module in order to easily find out all the steps introduced during the exploration.

Public profile:

•Finance Staffs
In finance department, anyone has to use Excel more or less intensively. Such a training will improve the efficiency of each finance department employee and so the global efficiency of the finance department.

•Excel Users
Using Excel in a proper way allows both to avoid mistakes and to save time. The Excel logic introduced here – both for creating official documents and for using tables – can be useful for anyone using Excel and especially for sales and purchases departments. Even if the examples are based on finance issues, they can be adapted to other issues.

Required level:

Intermediate in Excel, no level required in finance. However, examples will be more eloquent for people with finance background.

Objectives and Contents:

  • Use Excel 2007 as a powerful software and not as a simple board.
  • Define a logical framework for using Excel.
  • Develop logical and readable Excel workbooks and documents.
  • Use formulas for improving automation – from the simple sum to personalized macro functions.
