It also tells how to manage date and time data in Excel, how to combine logical and numerical formulae, how to manage multiple worksheets within a workbook, how to use the CHITEST function. An audit has been conducted to investigate the patients' view of care in an outpatient clinic’. The data collected by the survey is stored in the sheet 'outpatient survey.xls'.
