Course Description

You'll actually learn much more than six ways to sum in this presentation. Watch as Excel expert David Ringstrom, CPA, goes well beyond the SUM function to help you improve the resilience and integrity of your spreadsheets. You'll take summing to new levels with the SUBTOTAL and AGGREGATE functions, while you master using SUMIF and SUMIFS add up values based upon up to 127 criteria. David also will discuss the SUMPRODUCT function for multiplying and adding values at once.

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.
