Build an Excel app from scratch: the cooking calculator (by Oz du Soleil)

   Watch Intro

With this course, you immerse yourself into real world Excel.

You create a simple, real app.

No stand-alone tips and tricks here!

Everything in this course has a context and purpose.

You'll see Tables and Dropdown lists functioning together to control inputs, ensure the integrity of the data, and keep everything tied together.

You'll see VLOOKUP, IF, OR and nested formulas that retrieve data and automatically do our calculations.

We look at spreadsheet layout and use worksheet protection to prevent accidental corruption of our hard work.


This course was put together by my online Excel MVP colleague Oz du Soleil, which means:

It's delivered Oz style!

But how do you combine them to get a fully functioning application?

That's what you learn here.This is your starting point.
