How to Make Excel Write a Report

Microsoft ExcelIn this class, you will learn how to make Excel dynamically produce written textual summary observations based on a changing data set.

Businesses of all kinds rely on Excel for its ability to handle numbers. But, Excel can also be used to write sentences that change depending on an underlying dataset.
