Description:

Step-by-step, Excel expert David Ringstrom, CPA, takes you beyond the basics of pivot tables. He explains the PivotTable feature, the PowerPivot feature, the Recommended PivotTables feature, and others. After participating in David’s presentation, you’ll know how to create self-updating titles for charts and pivot charts, expand and collapse pivot table elements, drill down into numbers with a simple double-click, and more.

David demonstrates every technique at least twice: first, on a PowerPoint slide with numbered steps, and second, in the 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.

Office 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.
