David Ringstrom President and CPA, Accounting Advisors Inc
Excel expert David Ringstrom, CPA, coined the phrase, “Either you work Excel or it works you!” Large spreadsheets tend to subject spreadsheet users to extra work. In this practical presentation, David demonstrates several ways you can gracefully manage large spreadsheets. His goal is to help you save time, improve the integrity of your spreadsheets, and minimize repetitive tasks.

David demonstrates every technique at least twice: first, on a PowerPoint slide with numbered steps, and second, in Excel 2016. He draws your attention to any differences in Excel 2013, 2010, or 2007 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.

You'll learn how to:
  • Choose between custom views within a workbook to hide or unhide multiple worksheets at once.
  • Create a custom view that will enable you to unhide all worksheets in a workbook at once.
  • Enable a hidden keyboard shortcut for toggling the Freeze Panes feature on or off.
  • Explore how the INDIRECT worksheet function can automate pulling values from a group of individual worksheets.
  • Hide multiple worksheets at once within a workbook.
  • Learn how to use a single line of programming code to unhide all worksheets within a workbook.
  • Navigate large workbooks with ease by way of a hidden menu as well as keyboard shortcuts.
  • Restore “classic” Print Preview functionality in Excel 2010 and later.
  • Restore Full Screen View in Excel 2013 and later, as well as enabling a keyboard shortcut for this feature.
  • Understand Excel's Freeze Panes feature
  • Use the SUM Function to drill through two or more worksheets.
  • Use the Watch Window to easily monitor the ramifications of even minor changes to your workbooks.
