In Part 2 of Excel Macro Basics, Excel expert David H. Ringstrom, CPA, guides you beyond the basics of Excel’s Record Macro feature. He demonstrates how to enhance the code you’ve created by adding error-handling features, interactive features, and decision-making capabilities.
In addition, David explains how to:
- Filter based on cell contents.
- Simplify what-if analysis with Excel’s Goal Seek feature.
- Play back recorded macros to eliminate repetitive tasks.
- Create simple macros with the Record Macro feature… and more.
David demonstrates every technique at least twice, first on a PowerPoint slide with numbered steps, and second in Excel 2016. He’ll draw to your attention any differences in Excel 2013, 2010, or 2007 during the presentation, as well as in his detailed handouts.
