Course Description

In the second half of 2020, Microsoft released a significant upgrade to the most used spreadsheet program in the world. Microsoft Excel now offers the ability to handle dynamic arrays – functions that return a range of results that update as the source data changes. In this CPE webinar for CPAs, we discuss the power of dynamic arrays and introduce the new functions.

This online webinar covers the below-mentioned functions:  

  • RANDARRAY- creating a table of random numbers or random dates
  • UNIQUE – identifying the distinct items in a list
  • SEQUENCE – listing numbers with a set interval
  • SORT and SORTBY – new ways of dynamically sorting data
  • FILTER – building the ability to filter data into formulae
  • XLOOKUP – replacing VLOOKUP with greater flexibility
  • IFS and SWITCH making it easier to construct IF statements
  • The new CONCAT, and TEXTJOIN text functions

If you have an earlier version of Microsoft Excel then these functions will not be available to you and this course might not be for you. But if you do have a subscription to Office365 – either personally or through your work – I think you will find this webinar extremely useful.
