If you have a basic grasp of how to use Excel, you'll be ready to discover how to. This title helps to: select and use the right forecasting method for your business; choose and arrange data in lists, then manage that data with pivot tables; filter lists and turn them into charts that illustrate what's going on; find relationships in your data; use Excel's Analysis Toolpak feature to create forecasts automatically, or venture into advanced forecasts using worksheet functions; gain more control over your forecasting and target specific types of predictions; and, use moving averages and predict seasonal sales.

Author Biography - Conrad George Carlberg
Conrad Carlberg is the author of more than ten books about Microsoft Excel. As a multi-time recipient of Microsoft's MVP designation for Excel, he is a nationally recognized expert on that application. Carlberg's Ph.D. in statistics involves work in forecasting, as does his work in telecommunications and the health-care industry. He used the techniques in this book to reduce a crushing $24 million inventory owned by a Baby Bell to under $10 million in 18 months. The carrying costs for $24 million in equipment are significant. The point: This forecasting stuff works. As preparation for starting his consultancy, Carlberg spent two years as a sales engineer for a Fortune 500 company.
