  • Identify IFNA, IFERROR, and ISERROR functions and list which versions of Excel support them
  • Improve the odds of Excel creating a backup copy of your work so you can recover easily from program crashes
  • Apply Excel’s Filter feature to scan a column for # sign errors
  • Control Excel’s green error-checking prompts
  • Manage macro security prompts
  • Diagnose formula errors
  • Remove certain add-ins that can compromise Excel
  • Track down the ripple effect of errors in Excel spreadsheets
  • Count the number of # sign errors in a worksheet

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.
