In this practical webinar, you will receive a detailed overview of some of the darkest corners of Excel. You’ll review how many users inadvertently transform even the latest version of Excel into a zombie state with disabled features by using an obsolete worksheet format. You’ll also learn how to avoid incorporating features that will work in Office 365 but that will turn into zombies in any other version of Excel.
Office 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.
