What challenges did you have using Excel?

My name is Michele Porchina, and I am an office administrator.

I kept learning using these small five-minute tutorial videos, but they weren’t enough for me. I wanted to expand my knowledge and understand the tasks I was doing at a deeper level.

I looked at a few different options, but I just kept coming back to this MyecxcelOnline. It was the way that they speak to you. They could make things easy to understand.

There were a couple of other courses where I didn’t understand what they were saying.

What was your eureka moment?

My most significant breakthrough was realizing that I can export my data from any program into Excel with a macro. It makes the data so much easier to read. It’s saving me time.

Before I printed things off and physically wrote information on them. I knew there had to be an easier way to do this task using Excel.

I decided not to worry about it. I was on the course and figured that the solution would come up, and that is what happened.

When we started with macros, it became clear very quickly that this is what I needed.

Now I think about how many years I have been doing things the hard way! Knowing about macros before could have made my life so much easier.

How did MyExcelOnline help you?

Taking this course has made me more confident when speaking with people about doing specific jobs. When they need certain information I’m like, ‘I can do that, it won’t take me long to do.’

Depending on what they ask for, I can usually get it back to them within a couple of hours. Sometimes it might take me a day or two to figure out exactly what the layout should be.

When I give them the finished product, they are always happy and ready to provide me with another task.

It’s nice that people can come to me and ask, ‘Michelle, can you do this for me?’ and I can say yes I can!

Would you recommend MyExcelOnline?

MyExcelOnline has helped me immensely. It’s boosted my confidence.

Just learning a few basic things from the beginners’ course was helpful. There were so many little tips and tricks that I find useful.

What I have learned is saving me a lot of time.

If you’re sitting on the fence about this, I would say, it’s not going to hurt especially since it’s online. You can do it on your own time. And learn to apply and use the lessons.
