In this illuminating session, Excel expert David Ringstrom, CPA, shares techniques you can use to verify the integrity of even the most complicated Excel workbooks. David demonstrates Excel’s formula auditing and error-checking tools, as well as how to verify which cells contain formulas versus values. In addition, David explains how to: find buried worksheets; access password-protected workbooks; use the Conditional Formatting feature to identify duplicates in a list; monitor even minor changes to your workbooks; hide, display, and locate cells that contain comments; and much 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. 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 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 2019, Excel 2016, and so on.
