Professor Townsend's work featured on Excel Blog

Professor Townsend's work on Excel has been featured on  Debra Dalgleish from Contextures Inc.'s blog on Excel.  Debra's blog is the go to site for users learning how to use Excel.  The blog has examples and outlines many complicated processes that Excel offers.  

Professor Townsend has developed a code over the last 6 years.  The code takes a list of over 3300 rows of data (the up-to-date University of Hartford's class offerings) and lets the user query the data for many varied uses. 

We are very proud of all of Professor Townsend's hard work, and her work can be seen highlighted in the link below.
