AccountingWEB's Top Five Excel Tips From 2013

What do accountants count on most to do their jobs well? Yes, coffee is a good answer. No, I'm not thinking of booze.

If you eliminate any and all kinds of medicating, the smart money is on Microsoft Excel. And the most frustrating thing about Excel is, you can never know enough about it. There's always another trick, another method that requires one less click, or another key shortcut (my favorite!), that makes your Excel experience that much more enjoyable.

Our resident spreadsheet wizard, David Ringstrom, has more tricks than a Las Vegas magician and we've dug up five of his most popular from the past year. It'll help you re-remember the Excel tips from 2013 that made you love spreadsheets all over again. At least for a minute, anyway.
