About this Guided Project

Learn step-by-step

In a video that plays in a split-screen with your work area, your instructor will walk you through these steps:

  1. Use the Chrome browser to log in to access the free version of Microsoft Excel and upload an existing spreadsheet.

  2. Use Excel’s Find & Select feature to locate a specific cell value in a spreadsheet and automatically replace it with another value.

  3. Use the sort features in Excel to arrange rows in ascending and descending order according to specific column values.

  4. Use the filter features in Excel to select only rows that meet specific criteria.

  5. Calculate a new field in a spreadsheet and apply a filter and sort the result of the calculation.

Recommended experience

Basic exposure to MS Excel or another spreadsheet application is recommended.
