Excel for Document Controllers - Intermediate - Level 2B (EXL 2B)

Self-Paced Online Course Module - e-learning



In this course module, we cover intermediate Excel skills for Document Control professionals. We use a case study: how to improve the operability, the ergonomics and the exploitability of a Document Register.


This course targets an audience of Document Controllers who consider themselves as intermediate in the use of Microsoft Excel.

It also is a natural progression for users who consider themselves as beginners and who have already completed course EXL-1A - “Excel for Document Controllers - Level 1A”.

The course guides the learner in reducing manual operations and manual data entry in Excel-based Document Registers to a minimum. This is done through automation and streamlining of a number of operations, in order to maximise efficiency. This, in turn, allows Document Controllers to spend more time on value-adding activities.

At the end of the course, the learner will know how to:

01)    Automatically display today’s date on an Excel sheet

07)    Remove conditional formatting
08)    Fix the reference of a cell in a formula
09)    Ask Excel to leave a cell blank if a certain condition is met
10)    Automatically highlight actions a few days before their due date
11)    Use formulas to automatically number documents
12)    Apply a solution when cell formats refuse to change from text to number
13)    Automatically identifying the highest numerical value in a group of cells
14)    Automatically impose capitals letters at the start of each word
15)    Automatically impose capitals letters to an entire piece of text
16)    Automatically impose capitals letters to only a few letters in a piece of text
17)    Automatically impose lower case letters to only a few letters in a text
