Hi Akshita,

Without Excel it would be very difficult to survive in HR. Lot of your day to day activities would include trackers which are excel sheets.

Some of the things that you should be thorough with to maintain data in excel.

1. Formatting - Very important to manage data sheet neatly. Creates an impression!

2. Formula's you need to be thorough with:
1. SUM Function
2. COUNT Function
4. Logical Statements like IF and OR

3. Data Sorting

4. Data Validation
