(xylophone music) Hi, and welcome to Numbers Essential Training. I'm David Rivers. Numbers is a powerful spreadsheet application that gives you all the tools you need to create complex, yet stunning-looking worksheets. In this course, I'll take you through the creation process beginning with a quick tour of the template chooser and the user interface. Then it's on to some spreadsheet basics before we really start working with tables, table styles, and more complex formulas and functions.

Making your worksheets look good is an important part of creating professional quality spreadsheets. So, we'll work with charts and text formatting options before we explore the various types of objects we can add to a Numbers spreadsheet to really maximize that wow factor. Then, we investigate the various ways to share your documents with the world, including exporting to PDF and Excel formats, as well as working in the Cloud. With all of this and more to cover, let's get started with Numbers Essential Training.
