Excel expert David Ringstrom, CPA is fond of stating “Either you work Excel, or it works you!” In this fast-paced presentation David will share over two dozen ways that you can reclaim part of your day from Excel. You’ll uncover mouse techniques, keyboard shortcuts, hidden menus, and even ways to create your own custom keyboard shortcuts in Excel.
