Course Description

Course Description

This valuable Online CPE Webinar, 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 in a variety of ways, including using worksheet functions to summarize data, querying text files and databases from within Excel, and creating self-updating links to databases and other data sources, and more.

 Excel expert David Ringstrom, CPA, demonstrates every technique at least twice in this continuing education course: 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 online CPE webinar as well as in his detailed handouts. David also provides an Excel workbook that includes most of the examples he uses during the online CPE course.

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.

This Online CPE Excel Webinar covers the following Key Topics:

  • Discovering how Microsoft Query allows you to create self-updating links to databases, spreadsheets, text files, and other data sources.
  • Understanding what SELECT, FROM, WHERE, ORDER BY, and TOP mean within SQL statements.
  • Using the SUMIF function to summarize data based on a single criterion.
  • Using the COUNTIF function to determine the number of times an item appears on a list.
  • Implementing the SUMIFS function to sum values based on multiple criteria.
  • Comparing the AGGREGATE function in Excel 2010 and later to the SUBTOTAL function available in all versions of Excel.
  • Streamlining filtering of lists in Excel 2013 and later by using the Slicer feature with tables.
  • Using Microsoft Query to extract data from Access databases.
  • Eliminating the risk of workbook links by using Microsoft Query to get data from one workbook into another.
  • Learning how the Table feature empowers you to improve the integrity of Excel spreadsheets.
  • Removing automatic links between tables within a query in Microsoft Query.
  • Applying sort criteria to queries you’ve established in Microsoft Query.
  • Linking data from text files to Excel spreadsheets by way of Microsoft Query.
  • Add new data sources to Microsoft Excel so you can extract data from text files.

Learning Objectives

  • To identify how to sum values based on a single criterion and on multiple criteria.
  • To recall how to use Microsoft Query to get data from one workbook into another.
  • To recognize how to duplicate columns, rows, or cells within an Excel worksheet.

Recommended For

This online CPE course is for CPAs, CMAs, CIAs, and excel users interested in learning data analysis tricks to query text files and databases from within Excel.
