Crank Up Excel: Part 1
June 12th, 1:00 PM to 2:40 PM, ET

In Part 1 of this comprehensive 2-part webinar, Excel expert, David H. Ringstrom, CPA, teaches you how to speed up your work in Excel. Users often spend minutes or hours completing tasks that can be accomplished in a fraction of the time if they know how to use the correct features or techniques. You will learn about a variety of Excel’s time-saving features and helpful tips, such as how to filter data faster, streamline repetitive tasks, create keyboard shortcuts, and access folders and workbooks easily.

You will see each technique demonstrated at least twice: first, on a PowerPoint slide with numbered steps, and second, in the subscription-based Office 365 version of Excel. David draws your attention to any differences in the older versions of Excel (2019, 2016, 2013, and earlier) during the presentation, as well as in his detailed handouts. You will also receive an Excel workbook that includes most of the examples used during the webinar.

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.

You will learn how to:

  • Use the Table feature to automate formula management within lists.
  • Use the Table feature to improve the integrity of Excel spreadsheets.
  • Identify the pros and cons of merging cells in spreadsheets.
  • Compare Center Across Selection to Merged cells for centering text across two or more columns.
  • Enable a hidden keyboard shortcut for toggling the Freeze Panes feature on or off.
  • Apply different filter settings with just a couple of mouse clicks using the Custom Views feature.
  • Quickly access folders and workbooks, regardless of whether they’re stored on your computer or on a network.
  • Streamline filtering of lists in Excel 2013 and later by using the Slicer feature with tables.
  • Simplify repetitive tasks by creating your own keyboard shortcuts.
  • Insert totals into lists with a few mouse clicks by way of Excel’s SUBTOTAL function.
  • Monitor how much of your text is being reduced as you try to squeeze more on a page.
  • Leverage Excel’s Quick Access Toolbar to create a shortcut that enables you to filter lists with a key stroke instead of multiple mouse actions.

Upon course completion, you will be able to:

  • Apply your own custom keyboard shortcuts.
  • Recognize how to take advantage of hidden menus and features.
  • Identify how to unlock hidden functionality by double-clicking on certain aspects in Excel.

Crank Up Excel: Part 2
June 13th, 1:00 PM to 2:40 PM, ET

In Part 2 of Crank Up Excel, Excel expert David Ringstrom, CPA, discusses even more ways you can speed up your work in Excel and become more efficient in its use. You’ll learn shortcuts that allow you to streamline repetitive tasks and redundant data entry, embed lists you use frequently, transform filtering tasks, and more. In addition, you will learn about the benefits associated with Excel’s Text Box feature, the Personal Macro Workbook, and the Quick Analysis feature.

You will see each technique demonstrated at least twice: first, on a PowerPoint slide with numbered steps, and second, in the subscription-based Office 365 version of Excel. David draws your attention to any differences in the older versions of Excel (2019, 2016, 2013, and earlier) during the presentation, as well as in his detailed handouts. You will also receive an Excel workbook that includes most of the examples used during the webcast. 

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.

You will learn how to:

  • Separate first/last names into two columns without using formulas or retyping.
  • Streamline redundant data entry with a handy keyboard shortcut.
  • Paste a table as a raw list elsewhere in a workbook.
  • Edit .PDF documents in Word 2013 and later—useful for unlocking data you wish to edit in Excel.
  • Streamline the process of printing spreadsheets to .PDF format.
  • Apply formatting to multiple locations within a worksheet by way of the Format Painter feature.
  • Master the nuances—and the power—of Excel’s Transpose feature.
  • Avoid retyping data or clunky formulas by way of Excel’s Text to Columns command.
  • Streamline the process of printing spreadsheets to .PDF format.
  • Navigate large workbooks with ease by way of a hidden menu as well as keyboard shortcuts.
  • Discover the Custom Lists feature in Excel, which enables you to embed frequently used lists into Excel’s Options dialog box for use with any spreadsheet.

Upon course completion, you will be able to:

    •  Recall the nuances between Enter and Edit modes.
    •  Apply the Flash Fill feature.
    •  Identify the Alt-E-S-V keyboard shortcut used to Paste Values.

For those of us who aren’t excel savvy, this is A LOT of information. Have you ever considered doing 30 – 45 minute webinars (at a discounted price of course) so that there isn’t so much information to assimilate? After an hour, I make notes but I’m sure I’m glassy eyed!

What is a webinar?

A webinar is simply a seminar that you attend online. You either watch a live video feed of the speaker or listen to the speaker through your computer, tablet or phone’s audio.  You see the speaker’s slides, videos, and other presentation materials on your screen.

Can I ask questions during the webinar?

Yes. During the live webinar, you may submit questions and comments and the speaker will respond verbally. For a recorded webinar, your questions will be emailed to the speaker. You will typically receive a response from the speaker within two business days.

Can I attend using a tablet or smartphone?

Yes. You may attend a webinar using a computer, tablet or smartphone.

If I can’t attend a webinar live, can I view the recording later?

Yes. Shortly after each live program ends, we send all webinar registrants a link to the webinar recording. You can view the recording as many times as you like after the live webinar for up to 12 months.

What is an on-demand webinar?

An on-demand webinar is a previously recorded webinar that you may view at any time after your purchase for up to 12 months.

Can I stop a recorded webinar and start it later at the same point?

You can stop a recording and later log back in and navigate to any point in the webinar. The system will not force you to view the entire recording from start to finish.

Can I listen to recorded webinars on a tablet or smartphone?

Yes. You will be able to listen to any of our on-demand webinars on your computer, tablet, or smartphone.

Is there a deadline to register for a webinar?

Do the webinars qualify for Continuing Education Credit?

Can I still receive Continuing Education Credits if I view the webinar recording instead of the live presentation?

In most cases, the answer is yes. Recorded webinars are not eligible for CLE credit in the following states: AR, KS, MS, NE, and RI. In all other jurisdictions, recorded programs are eligible for credit. In addition, CPE credit is not available for recorded webinars. Please note that recorded webinars are only eligible for a certain period of time based on the jurisdiction.
