Excel expert David Ringstrom, CPA, shares a variety of tricks and techniques you can use to create and automate Excel charts in this informative session. He covers several helpful features Excel offers, including the Recommended Charts feature, the Sparkline feature, and the PivotChart feature. In addition, David shows you step-by-step how to avoid repetitive formatting, create self-updating chart titles, summarize data based on a single criterion, and liven up your charts with clip art.

David demonstrates every technique at least twice: first, on a PowerPoint slide with numbered steps, and second, in the subscription-based Microsoft 365 (formerly 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.
