    In the next 6 months the company that am currently working for will implement a CMMS database system for it's maintenance department. When I was informed I was told the Excel application is also a must know requirement. I do not know anything about excel based on usage, though I took CompTIA A+ courses seven years ago making me inquisitive about all software.
    Can I be orientated in how to learn Excel?

    Thank You,

    Mr. Corona

    Hi Chandoo,

    Your blog has been part of my daily routine with some "dead time" due to unforeseen mishap along the way. I enjoy it as much now as I did when I first found about "Chandoo", with all the personal touches including the arrival of your twins that have been part of so many blogs where your pride shines for them as well as your wife! 🙂
    All the best to you and all the people that are close to your heart.
    Happy New Year!

    Happy New Year, Chandoo!

    I don't know you in personal but I feel I know you so much thanks to this your site and blog. I respect you so much as I respect my first teacher when I see her on the street. Let the new year be more prosperous to you, your family, your team and all your readers. Each time when I visit your site is an adventure in an unknown place. Keep revealing us the secrets of these places. Happy New Year!
