do: An Excel adventure in dates and times

Why is Easter late this year? This do: talk is for anybody who uses dates and times in their Excel work. We will explore functions, formulas and formats that are under-appreciated, or even hidden.

Learn how to work with dates and times, including calculations that work on dates. Understand how Excel formats dates, and explore some interesting formats. And, after all, find out how to calculate the date when Easter will fall.

Since then he has given countless courses in all aspects of Excel, including installation and programming, and was part of the team which wrote and delivered Microsoft’s internal helpdesk training for Excel 2002.
