The items included in this newsletter are listed below. Our newsletter go out about once a month - if you'd like to subscribe, just let us know!
We've published our single-page diary of courses to the end of June 2023 (you can also see a single-page summary of the courses we give). We will be happy to add more classroom courses if demand warrants it (the majority of our training is still online for now): just ask! If you book a place on a course, we almost certainly will never cancel it; or if you can't see the course you want, ask us about running a tailored course at your company.
Did you know that you can use legacy Excel 4 functions like GET.WORKBOOK, GET.DOCUMENT and NAMES to list out worksheet names, range names, cell details and much more without using macros? We didn't either, until a client (thanks, Jenny M!) showed us that it was possible - here's why and how.
Our first Power Automate course is set for delivery at the start of November, so you may well see a series of blogs about creating flows to run in the cloud over the coming months. To give you a flavour of what's possible, here's an outline of how you can attach a flow to a OneDrive folder to send you an email notification whenever anyone modifies any file within it.
The September 2022 update to Power BI is small (contrary to the published released plan for changes to Power BI up to March 2023). You can now format reports independently for mobile view and show hierarchical charts properly by default (the default column titles for aggregated fields in tables also now include the aggregation method used).
Congratulations to Sarah Middlebrough for being the primus inter pares of the 21 people who returned a correct solution to last month's word search competition (you can see the answer and 3 hidden film titles here). To compensate for the lack of a compettiion in this newsletter, we've included StackOverflow's useful advice for dealing with a zombie apocalypse.
Is it too early to mention the C word? If you're struggling what to get someone with nerdy tendencies (a personality description which we suspect includes the majority of the readers of this newsletter, and all of the authors) here are 5 gift ideas to inspire you.
Note that to keep our website content up-to-date we only publish newsletters from the last 3 calendar years.
