Course Description

Let me ask you a question…what is your #1 most used Excel function of all time? Is it…the SUM function? It shouldn’t be. Well, it shouldn’t be if your goal is to reduce errors in your recurring-use workbooks. We’ll explore a powerful alternative to the SUM function that allows us to perform better summing.

Let me ask you another question. When you insert new data rows, are they automatically included in your formulas? If not, then you probably have errors in your workbook because the formulas don’t include everything they should.

Anticipating how your workbooks may change over time and addressing the related risks up front can help reduce errors in your workbook. In this webinar, we’ll explore three simple ways to improve the reliability of your recurring-use workbooks.

Participants of this webinar will automatically receive a complimentary subscription to the Excel University blog! After the webinar, you'll receive a welcome email with links to the resources included in the presentation. You'll be notified via email whenever I write a new Excel article or blog post, typically 2-3 per month. You can unsubscribe anytime, but, I hope you'll stick around to learn more about how to use Excel.
