In Part 2 of Macros, Excel expert David Ringstrom, CPA, takes you beyond the basics of using Excel’s Record Macro feature. He shows you how to enhance the code you’ve created with the Record Macro feature by adding error-handling functions, decision-making capabilities, and interactive features. In addition, David presents techniques, features, and keyboard shortcuts that will help you eliminate repetitive tasks and become more proficient utilizing Excel macros.
David demonstrates every technique at least twice: first, on a PowerPoint slide with numbered steps, and second, in the Microsoft 365 (formerly known as Office 365) version of Excel. David draws your attention to any differences in the older versions of Excel (2019, 2016, 2013, and earlier) 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.
Microsoft 365 is a subscription-based product that provides new-feature updates as often as monthly. Conversely, the perpetual licensed versions of Excel have feature sets that don’t change. Perpetual licensed versions have year numbers, such as Excel 2019, Excel 2016, and so on.
