Dates and Times

alwExcel allows you to work with all types of data, including dates and times. (This probably isn’t news to you, right?) Understanding all the ins and outs of working with dates and times in Excel can be confusing, however. You can remove the confusion, if you just have the right information.

That’s where my Using Dates and Times course can help. It shows you exactly how Excel implements dates and times and how you can work with them most effectively. Consisting of almost three-and-a-half hours of focused, informative videos, Using Dates and Times leads you step by step to a better understanding of how best to work with times and dates in Excel. In 35 individual lessons you gain mastery of this basic and essential area of using the program and developing your own worksheets and formulas. The course allows you to learn at your own pace, exactly the way you want.


What the Course Covers

The Using Dates and Times course is packed with great information designed to help you develop the understanding necessary to working with both dates and times in Excel. The course is divided into sections, each covering a major topic area. Each section is further divided into a series of lessons crafted to help you expand your understanding.

There is a tremendous amount of information in this course, designed to take you from the level of an absolute beginner, completely unfamiliar with dates and times in the Excel world, all the way to an advanced level. The course is designed to help you progress and succeed at your own pace.

Here’s a quick rundown of the sections in the course:

  • Section 100: Course Introduction (3 lessons)
  • Section 101: Date and Time Basics (7 lessons)
  • Section 102: Working with Date and Time Functions (5 lessons)
  • Section 103: Calculating with Dates (6 lessons)
  • Section 104: Calculating with Times (4 lessons)
  • Section 105: Converting Dates and Times (4 lessons)
  • Section 106: Formatting Dates and Times (4 lessons)
  • Section 107: Wrapping Up (2 lessons)

That’s a grand total of 35 lessons. (As I said—packed with information!) If you want an even more detailed outline of the course, you can download it by clicking or right-clicking on this link. The detailed outline shows the title of each section, title of each lesson, and the length for each lesson.

(This 286-page e-book is a $27.99 value, and it is yours free!) It is a treasure trove of tips, tricks, and instruction on how you can use times and dates in your worksheets. This is a great resource that supplements what you discover in the course and can help you extend your skills.

At 286 pages, I can’t provide a full outline on this page, but if you would like to see what is contained in ExcelTips: Times and Dates, 9th Edition, you can download the Introduction to the e-book by clicking or right-clicking on this link. It contains a complete table of contents for this valuable resource.


A Sample Lesson

To give you a taste for how I present information in the course, I want to share one of the lessons with you. Below is the video for lesson 101-1, “How Excel Stores Dates and Times” (Hint: You may want to maximize the video so it fills your screen. I find this helpful when viewing lessons.)

I hope that gives you an idea of how I conduct my courses—I try to be clear, concise, and complete when discussing any particular topic. Note that for this particular lesson, the supplemental materials include a full transcript. In fact, each lesson in the course includes a full transcript, and supplemental materials are available on each lesson’s page once you register for the course.
