Overview of the webinar

Do you get discouraged or frustrated when attempting to manage large Excel spreadsheets? In this comprehensive presentation, Excel expert David Ringstrom, CPA, demonstrates a number of ways you can successfully tame cumbersome spreadsheets. His helpful tips enable you to save time, improve the integrity of large workbooks, avoid repetitive tasks, and much more.

David demonstrates every technique at least twice: first, on a PowerPoint slide with numbered steps, and second, in Excel 2019. David draws your attention to any differences in the older versions of Excel (2016, 2013, and earlier) during the presentation as well as in his detailed handouts. You’ll also discover some features only available in Office 365 but not in Excel 2019. David also provides an Excel workbook that includes most of the examples he uses 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.
