AccountingWEB Webinar: Creating error proof spreadsheets

In today's fast-paced business world, spreadsheet users don't always have the luxury of double-checking every element of their work, particularly in complex spreadsheets. Fortunately there are some simple practices you can adopt to help minimize the risk of errors in your spreadsheets. You can also learn how to track down errors in spreadsheets built by others. Take an hour tomorrow and get up to speed during our live Creating Error Proof Spreadsheets Webinar. AccountingWEB staff writer David Ringstrom, CPA, will share his best tips and secrets for improving the integrity of your spreadsheets.

Topics to be covered include design strategies as well as frequently overlooked techniques like range names and Excel's Formula Auditing tools. Even if you're already using range names, you'll learn how to create dynamic range names that expand or contract as you add or remove data. These in turn give your spreadsheets and PivotTables much better integrity, and ensure that you never have to remember to expand or reduce the data source area.

You'll also learn how to effectively make calculation sheets or areas invisible or at least inaccessible by most users — without resorting to passwords. You'll learn how to arrange multiple files or even sheets within a single file onscreen so that you can easily build formulas without having to flip back-and-forth. This can help you so that you don't lose your place, or worse, click on the wrong cell.

After the presentation you'll be able to ask David any Excel question you have, even if it's not related to the material that he presented. You'll learn professional spreadsheet develop secrets and have live access to an Excel expert for just $99. Register now!
