Course Description

You’ll gain even more knowledge of Excel spreadsheets in this presentation by David Ringstrom, CPA. He’ll show you more ways to save time working in Excel, such as with pivot tables, charts, and additional features Excel offers. David also will share a variety of techniques, including how to minimize data entry, identify duplicate entries, and more.

David demonstrates every technique at least twice: first, on a PowerPoint slide with numbered steps, and second, in the subscription-based Office 365 version of Excel. David draws your attention to any differences in the older versions of Excel (2019, 2016, 2013, and earlier) during the presentation as well as in his detailed handouts. David also provides an Excel workbook that includes most of the examples he uses during the webcast.

Office 365 is a subscription-based product that provides new-feature updates as often as monthly. Conversely, the perpetual licensed versions of Excel have feature sets that don’t change. Perpetual licensed versions have year numbers, such as Excel 2019, Excel 2016, and so on.

This was a great webinar and I have at least take-aways that will cut my time down on spreadsheets in a big way. Like the instructor says, I am one of those CPAs who knows only what I need to know about excel and haven't kept up with the features. This was a great update and I'll be looking for some more! Thanks so much!

The self-study functionality is great with two kids under two years old. I like these Excel course because of how they promote learning by showing step by step screenshots and an actual example within the program.
