The subtle nuances in Excel often frustrate Excel users. In this practical webinar, Excel expert, David Ringstrom, CPA, focuses on the quirks and foibles of Excel that trip up the unaware. For instance, sometimes problems arise when someone using a newer version of Excel shares a workbook with you (or vice versa). In other cases, features sometimes unceremoniously vanish from Excel, particularly in Office 365, but you’ll learn how to bring those features you rely on back again. After this course, you’ll be empowered to work more effectively in Excel.
David demonstrates every technique at least twice: first, on a PowerPoint slide with numbered steps, and second, in Excel 2016. You will recognize any differences in Excel 2013, 2010, or 2007 during the webinar, and will receive detailed handouts. You will also receive an Excel workbook that includes most of the examples used during the webinar.
