Program Description

David H. Ringstrom, CPA will present numerous techniques that he relies on to improve the integrity of spreadsheets that he builds for himself and others. This session will empower your team with simple ways to avoid introducing errors into their own workbooks. David will focus primarily on Excel 2007 and 2010, but will answer questions specific to other versions, such as Excel 2003 and Excel 2013. Alternate instructions for Excel 2003 and earlier are included in the handout where applicable.
