Excel Agility: Gaining Control of Large Spreadsheets
As Excel expert David Ringstrom says, “Either you work Excel or it works you.” After attending his presentation, you’ll be aware of techniques and keyboard shortcuts that will help you gain control of large spreadsheets, save time, avoid repetitive tasks, and improve the integrity of your workbooks.

He draws your attention to 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.
