Excel for Accounting Professionals Session 2: Data Validation and Conditional Formatting

Let us ask you a question. What function do you use most? Is it the SUM function? It shouldn’t be…well, at least if efficiency is your goal. This session covers the function that sums better than the SUM function for accounting professionals. In addition, we review the data validation feature, which enables us to control what a user enters into a cell. We’ll discuss the conditional formatting feature, which enables us to format a cell based on its value. Lastly, we’ll conclude by reviewing a technique that addresses a major pitfall of Excel. The webcast is designed with time for you to work along. During the session, the instructor will provide time for you to complete the exercises using your Microsoft Excel for Windows.
