Course Description

Excel and QuickBooks expert David Ringstrom, CPA, presents additional ways to analyze data from QuickBooks Desktop and QuickBooks Online in this follow-up to part 1. Among other topics, David covers how to flatten multiple-column reports back into a list format for further analysis, how users of Excel 2016 and later can visually present a summary profit and loss report in chart form by way of Waterfall charts, how users of Excel 2013 and later can implement the Bing Maps add-in to transform summary data into interactive maps, and how users of earlier versions of Excel can clean up their QuickBooks reports. 

David demonstrates every technique at least twice: first, on a PowerPoint slide with numbered steps, and second, in the subscription-based Microsoft 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.

Microsoft 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.
