Excel Explained: Building Error-Proof Spreadsheets Webinar

In this comprehensive session, Excel expert David Ringstrom, CPA, shares a variety of tricks and techniques you can use to improve the accuracy of your Excel spreadsheets. To help you create spreadsheets that are free of errors, David demonstrates how to implement Excel features and functions, such as the Hide and Protect feature, the Conditional Formatting feature, the VLOOUP function, the SUBTOTAL function, and others. In addition, he discusses how to preserve key formulas, perform dual lookups, create self-updating report titles, and more.

David demonstrates every technique at least twice: first, on a PowerPoint slide with numbered steps, and second, in the subscription-based Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365) version of Excel. Differences in the older versions of Excel (2021, 2019, 2016 and earlier) will be pointed out, as well as in his detailed handouts. He also provides an Excel workbook that includes most of the examples he uses during the webcast.

Microsoft 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 2021, Excel 2019, and so on.
