Course Description

Excel expert David H. Ringstrom, CPA, teaches the basics of using Excel pivot tables in this beneficial webcast. Pivot tables empower users to easily create reports from complex data simply by using their mouse. Pivot tables, as is the case with many Excel features, have nuances that can trip up the unaware user, so David explains some traps and shares tricks to help ensure the reports you create are accurate. 

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.
