Program Content:

When it comes to managing large spreadsheets, users often feel stressed about a multitude of issues. In this beneficial presentation, Excel expert David Ringstrom, CPA, demonstrates several ways you can manage large spreadsheets with aplomb. His tips will help you 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 2016. He’ll draw to your attention any differences in Excel 2013, 2010, or 2007 during the presentation as well as in his detailed handouts. David also provides an Excel workbook that includes most of the examples he uses during the webcast.
