Join Jess Stratton for an in-depth discussion in this video Using Google Sheets to replace Excel, part of Migrating from Office 2013 to Google Apps.
- Like we did with Word, I'm gonna give you…a very high-level overview of Google Sheets…as a replacement for Microsoft Excel.…We also have a full course on "Google Sheets…Essential Training," so I highly recommend…watching that to learn more.…However, the goal for this video is so…that you can get started right away using it.…Click the red New button, and this time…we're gonna select Google Sheets.…We'll be brought to a new spreadsheet,…and like Word, the first thing that we're gonna do…is give our sheet a name.…I do that by clicking Untitled spreadsheet…in the top left-hand side.…
I'm gonna give it a name.…And click the blue OK button.…Our spreadsheet's auto saved,…and now we're ready to go.…I'm gonna paste in some data so…that we can start working right away.…Let's head to the Format menu at the top of the screen.…The Format menu allows you to change…the way the data exists in the cell.…You can format the way it looks…and you can also format the cell type,…whether it's a Number, Currency,…a Time or a Date, even a Duration.…

Q: Will this course help me migrate from Office 365 to Google apps?
A: It will if you use the desktop version of Office 365. If you use the Office 365 apps online through a web browser only, this course will be helpful in terms of general concepts, but there are enough differences between the desktop and online versions of Office that many specific instructions won't apply.
