Overview of the webinar

When you participate in this live webcast, you’ll learn from Excel expert David Ringstrom, CPA, how the Office 365 version of Excel 2016 differs from previous versions and perpetual licensed versions of Excel 2016. While, historically, each version of Excel has been identical for all users, that’s no longer the case. David discusses the updated features and worksheet functions available in the Office 365 version of Excel 2016 and he shows you step-by-step how to use them. He also shares helpful keyboard shortcuts and tips. David demonstrates every technique at least twice: first, on a PowerPoint slide with numbered steps and second, in the Office 365 version of Excel 2016. He draws your attention to any differences in the perpetual licensed versions of Excel 2016, 2013, 2010 or 2007 during the presentation as well as in his detailed handouts. In addition, David provides an Excel workbook that includes most of the examples he uses during the webcast.
