This three-day course provides a comprehensive introduction to scripting with ACL Analytics. In an interactive hands-on environment, your instructor, who has many years of ACL scripting and audit experience, will start by teaching you scripting basics and best practices to provide you with the essential scripting foundations. You will then be shown how to script the import, preparation and analysis phases of an audit to create continuous routines that can be run against future data. In addition to scripting commands that exists within the user interface, you will also be taught how to leverage functionality that is only available to a script, such as the GROUP and LOOP commands, flag and counter-based loops and creating a script that creates another script. These features will add amazing power to your knowledge base. You will also see how functions play a vital role in the scripting process.
Throughout this comprehensive scripting course via instructor led sessions and activities, you will learn how to effectively use ACL Analytics to accomplish your scripting goals. Your experienced ACL instructor will encourage an interactive environment where you can ask for assistance, advice and guidance. The thoroughly documented training manual will be used throughout the course and will provide you with essential future reference. You will also be able to take home with you the course training files, including all your class work and some pre-written scripts for routines such as cleansing addresses, split transactions, keyword searches and deleting temporary tables.
This course will also prepare you for level 6 & 7 of the ACL Certified Data Analyst (ACDA) exam.
