Excel for Administrative Assistants

Many administrative professionals are unaware of Excel’s many features and functions they can implement to improve the accuracy and efficiency of their work. In this comprehensive webinar, Excel expert David Ringstrom, CPA, shares applicable Excel fundamentals that will enable administrative professionals to achieve those goals. Step-by-step, David demonstrates and explains ways to streamline data entry, remove duplicates from lists, quickly sift through lists of data with the Slicer feature, create instant reports with pivot tables, as well as minimizing data entry by using look-up functions.

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.
