Presenter: David Ringstrom, CPA

In this eye-opening presentation, Excel expert David Ringstrom, CPA, shares tips, tricks, and keyboard shortcuts to help Excel spreadsheet basics. You’ll discover ways to accomplish tasks that might currently be taking you several minutes or even hours to complete. David explains a variety of Excel’s features and shows you how to filter data faster, streamline repetitive tasks, create keyboard shortcuts, and access folders and workbooks easily.

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. 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. David also provides an Excel workbook that includes most of the examples he uses during the session.

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 2019, Excel 2016, and so on.
