    Question Funny icebreakers for Excel training

    I'm teaching a class tomorrow on Excel text functions and would like to show a funny video or Excel application somewhat related to that topic as an icebreaker. Any suggestions?

    There was this thread a little while back, but not much there either:

    Icebreaker Excel Introductory video

    Guess not many people try to do ice breakers with excel?

    what is your target audience? if its teens the theme of music is usually a good starting point. so u might, for eg. have a sheet that grabs file names from the music folder and extracts title, artist, track etc from the file name.

    for oldies parhaps work with a genealogy list and apply functions to pick all the surnames who first names are "John".

    for me, i find people more attentive if the theme is related to their own interests because they can take ownership of the content. it often results in more pertinant questions arising from the session because people see applications for the material in their interest area and wonder how to fit the learning to that new application.
    The more you learn, the more you realise how little you know. Excel 2003 and 2010 / Win7
    Code:
    Sub HintForGoodResults( )
        If yourcode Is indented Then
            "it is easier to for everyone to understand" AND "others are more likely to give assistance"
        Else
            "errors are much harder to find" OR "others dont bother"
        End If
    End Sub

    Might be a little late for the course you were presenting but we have a white paper that might be useful for next time.

    "7 Mischievous Adventures in Excel" - basically how to mess with your colleague's head by playing tricks on them in Excel!

    Lots of fun for everyone!
