Excel expert David H. Ringstrom, CPA, shows you how to create resilient and dynamic budget spreadsheets in this informative presentation. He explains techniques and Excel features that allow you to improve the integrity of your spreadsheets, transform filtering tasks, and preserve key formulas.

David demonstrates every technique at least twice: first, on a PowerPoint slide with numbered steps, and second, in Excel 2016. He’ll draw to your attention any differences in Excel 2013, 2010, or 2007 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.
