Focused Skills Lab: Conditional Formatting, Making Information Stand Out in Excel

One video course to improve your Excel skills

How to use Excel's conditional formatting tools to create dynamic, stand-out reports.

You’ve just put together a report for a committee meeting, and you’re sure that you’ve included everything the committee needs to make the right decisions. The head of the committee squints at a copy of the report, frowns, and asks “What am I supposed to be looking at here?”

Sometimes you need data points to stand out in a list or a report so that everyone knows exactly what they should be looking for. Microsoft Excel’s Conditional Formatting tools can draw eyes to information like top donors and prospects, increased fund activity, or anything else you want to highlight. In Excel for Fundraisers Live!: Make your data stand out with Conditional Formatting, Greg Duke will demonstrate how to make your lists and reports visually appealing with boldface, color, and even custom icons. Excel for Fundraisers Live! will help you make all your lists and reports actionable and dynamic!
