Course Description

In this sweeping presentation Excel expert David Ringstrom, CPA explores the Table feature. This feature offers an astonishing number of automation and data integrity opportunities, all with out writing any programming code. Start saving time today by creating charts that resize themselves as you add data; formulas and pivot tables that automatically accommodate expansions of a data set; and get through analytical tasks more effectively and efficiently.

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.
