Course Description

In this valuable presentation, Excel expert David Ringstrom, CPA, shows you how to extract data from databases, such as Access or SQL Server, as well as text files and then transfer that data into Excel. Once your data is in Excel, you then can work with it a variety of ways, including using worksheet functions to summarize data, querying text files and databases from within Excel, creating self-updating links to databases and other data sources, and more.

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.
