Focused Skills Lab: Connect to Live Data with Hyperlinks and Get/Transform Data in Excel
One video course to improve your Excel skills
How many times have you had to look up a stock price to determine a prospect’s giving capacity? What if, instead of having to type in the stock price, its day-to-day valuation, and historical pricing data, you could pull all that info right into a report? Even better…what if you could link that report right to the stock’s Web page so you never have to look it up again?
Hyperlinks aren’t just for Web pages anymore. In Excel for Fundraisers Live! -- Connect to Live Data with Hyperlinks and Get/Transform Data, Greg Duke will show you how not just to pull data tables into a report from just about anywhere on the Internet, but how to link to those tables so that if it changes, your report changes, too!
Dr. Duke will also demonstrate how to get and transform data from different online formats into Excel…even from your organization’s Facebook page. Whether you’re looking to pull an events schedule from a website into a fundraising report, or you want to get information from an online list, this Excel for Fundraisers Live class is for you!
