      Are you awash in data but unsure how to make sense out of it? Would you like to access and use government collected data for your ditch company? This workshop will help solve these problems.
This is a hands-on workshop in the computer lab. The course is designed to teach smart spreadsheet strategies for typical ditch company data processing tasks.
After a brief review of basic Excel techniques, we will dive right into collecting data from online sources. We will show you how to use Pivot Tables—a simple but powerful Excel feature that will greatly assist in data evaluation.
We’ll conclude with demonstrations of advanced spreadsheet techniques. They include a bit of statistics (for the timid) and forecasting available water for the season using historical data. If you’ve designed your spreadsheet properly, you’re more than halfway there.
With a little study on your own, or help from an outside professional, you can harness the power of Excel and take your data management to a whole new level.
