What challenges did you have using Excel?
My name’s Gary, and I’m a healthcare data analyst. I use a lot of Excel, probably 90% of the day.
Remembering the different ways of doing things, the other options you have, and the different formulas can be challenging.
So when you don’t know something, you tend to go to Google to find it. When you are using MyExcelOnline, that’s your first source of information.
They’ve been good at keeping the training courses relevant and updated.
I’ve been able to go on to ask questions and get pretty responsive answers. It’s a great resource to have available in your hip pocket.
Did you have any concerns about enrolling on the course?
I mean, it’s one of those things that since you’re paying money to access. There’s a lot of free resources out there. You have to ask, is this worth paying for?
Over the course of a couple of months, I realized that the minimal price they charge each month is well worth it, especially if you’re using Excel a lot.
Sometimes you can even help other people with different things you’ve run across before.
What was your Eureka moment?
When I started using the Power Query add-in in Excel, I was not familiar with it. But the size of the data kept getting bigger and bigger, and I needed a way to manage it.
Our machines were limited with bandwidth at work. I realized that this particular add-in could make my life so much easier if I learned how to use it.
It was very refreshing to go through the steps module by module and learn Power Query.
How did MyExcelOnline help you?
Being able to stand out among others at work due to your knowledge and ability to build innovative things is a real transformation.
People have that ‘wow’ reaction, “Oh! How did you do that? We’ve never seen that before.” So just taking it to that next level.
You can set it to auto-update when building some of the macros and the dashboards. With Power Query, you can just put it in a file, click refresh, and it does most of this stuff for you. So that’s a big time saver.
Would you recommend MyExcelOnline?
What do you have to lose? I mean, the cost is not that much.
There are hundreds of resources on the internet, but I’ve found MyExcelOnline to be one of the best. The monetary value for what you get and what you pay for is well worth it.
