Description

In this session, Excel expert David Ringstrom, CPA, continues the auditing discussion he started in Part 1 of this series.  You see how retrofitting existing spreadsheets with range names can transform the auditing process. You learn to determine at a glance if a spreadsheet contains links to other documents, as well as explore nuances surrounding cell comments, plus much more.

In this presentation, David demonstrates techniques in Excel 2016, but where applicable, he notes any differences in Excel 2013, 2010, or 2007. His webcasts are fast-paced, and attendees often are surprised at the amount of ground he covers in a session. David's detailed handouts, with numbered steps, serve as reference material you can utilize going forward. He also provides an Excel workbook that includes the examples he uses to demonstrate techniques during the presentation.

Topics covered:

• Find and select all formulas within a worksheet with just a couple of mouse clicks.

• Use the N function to annotate formulas within the formula bar when a cell comment won’t suffice.

• Learn how range names can minimize errors, save time in Excel, serve as navigation aids, and store information in hidden locations.

• Go beyond simply adding cell comments: easily hide, display, and locate all cells that contain comments.

• Audit all named cells in a workbook with ease by way of the INDIRECT function in all versions of Excel and the FORMULATEXT function in Excel 2013 and later.

• Track down the ripple effect of errors in spreadsheets with Excel’s Trace Error command.

• Go behind the scenes in a workbook to check for worksheets that can’t be viewed or hidden from Excel’s primary user interface.

• Print a list of all cell comments on a worksheet or print visible comments.

• See how to view two worksheets from within the same workbook at the same time.

• Simplify formula auditing by way of the Apply Names feature.
