Course Description

Do you often run into subtle obstacles when working in Excel? If yes, then this course is certainly for you. We bring here a solution focusing on the Nuances and quirks of MS Excel with one of the eminent Excel Expert David Ringstrom, CPA. Many-a-times we face problems when the other person shares an Excel workbook in a newer version. David will explain you on how to overcome these obstacles, which will assist the users in working more efficiently in Excel.

David, will demonstrate each technique at least twice, firstly vide a step-wise PowerPoint presentation and secondly in a subscription-based MS Office 365 version of Excel and also he will draw your attention to differences in the older versions of Excel (i.e. 2019, 2016, 2013, etc)in his presentation and detailed handouts. David also provides an Excel workbook that includes most of the examples he uses during the webcast.

David brings it to your attention on the subscription-based product 'Office 365' which provides new feature updates as often as monthly as against the perpetual licensed versions of Excel such as Excel 2019, Excel 2016, and so on, which does not update and include latest features.
