Overview

Let us ask you a question. What Excel function do you use most? Is it the SUM function? It shouldn’t be…well, at least if efficiency is your goal. This session covers the function that sums better than the SUM function for accounting professionals.

In addition, we review the data validation feature, which enables us to control what a user enters into a cell. We’ll discuss the conditional formatting feature, which enables us to format a cell based on its value. Lastly, we’ll conclude by reviewing a technique that addresses a major pitfall of Excel.

This hands-on workshop is an effective way to learn Excel, since you’ll be completing the same exercises demonstrated by the instructor. A link will be provided so you can download the necessary Excel files. During the session, the instructor will provide time for you to complete the exercises using your Microsoft Excel for Windows. For each topic presented, the instructor explains the topic and demonstrates it with Excel exercises. Then, the instructor provides time for you to complete many of the same exercises. Finally, the instructor demonstrates the solutions for all exercises in the practice workbook, then moves to the next topic. This format allows you to work alongside your instructor, rather than just watching passively, enabling you to immediately practice the skills demonstrated.
