    How Do You Do This in Excel

    Program Objective: How do you get from your house to the store? Do you walk? Ride a bike? Drive a car? All of these methods will get you there, but, some are faster than others. The same is true in Excel. There are often several ways to accomplish any given task in Excel. But, not all options provide the same efficiency. For example, let’s say you need to compute a report subtotal, such as the fixed assets subtotal. How do you do this in Excel? Do you use the SUM function? If so, it may surprise you to learn that there is a more efficient option. In this session, we’ll examine several common Excel tasks and then discuss our options.

    Mapping Tables

    Program Objective: When you need a report that your accounting system doesn’t provide, you probably turn to Excel to create the report. In this session, we will explore the features, functions, and techniques needed to help automate these types of reports. For example, you want to export a trial balance and you want Excel to pull the values into the proper lines in a balance sheet, even when the labels are different and even when many accounts need to roll up to a single report line. By the end of the session, you’ll learn how to structure your reporting workbook so that your Excel formulas automatically summarize the exported accounting system data.

    Transform Data Without Formulas or Macros

    Program Objective: If you haven’t played with the Get & Transform commands in Excel 2016 for Windows, they are probably worth checking out. Formerly available as the Power Query add-in, the Get & Transform tools built-in to Excel 2016 for Windows are incredibly powerful. At a high level, they enable us to retrieve data from a variety of sources and prepare it for use as needed. These tools provide new ways to approach tasks that were previously manual and time-consuming. In this session, we’ll apply these tools to several common tasks, including flattening data, splitting and combining columns, formatting data, unpivoting summarized data, and combining several csv exports. If you frequently export/import data from one system to another, you will want to understand how to use a Get & Transform query to streamline your work.

    Excel Budget Ideas

    Program Objective: Budget methods are the key to allowing department managers to prepare their budget in Excel efficiently. A budget method may be, for example, spread prior year actuals or match prior year actuals, or match prior year actuals less 10%. In this webcast, we’ll explore how to allow the users to pick a budget method from a drop down list for each account, and then have Excel perform different math depending on the budget method selected. We use several features and functions at the same time to accomplish this, including data validation and a combination of functions. Even if you are not involved in the budgeting process, the underlying features and functions discussed have a wide range of uses.

    The Two Most Important Excel Functions
    for Accountants

    Program Objective: We’ll discuss two Excel functions that provide incredible efficiency to accountants. One has been around for decades and is often cited as the most popular Excel function. It is the VLOOKUP function. VLOOKUP is indeed a favorite of many accountants. After exploring the details of VLOOKUP, we’ll examine a relatively new alternative. We’ll compare these two functions and see which performs lookup tasks more effectively. It will be a competition, an epic battle between two of the most important Excel functions. Who will win?
