Course Description

Excel errors continue to plague organizations of all sizes. As spreadsheets become more common, these errors will continue to impact virtually every Excel user and those who rely on Excel-based data and analyses. Fortunately, that need not be the case because many options exist to prevent, identify, and correct spreadsheet errors before adversely affecting reports and decision-making processes.

In this session, you will learn how to apply best practices to reduce the error rate in workbooks you and others on your team create and edit. Equally important, you will learn how to use add-ins for Excel to programmatically scan and audit your spreadsheets to identify potentially costly errors while there is still time to correct them. Finally, you do not want to miss this opportunity to learn PerfectXL, ClusterSeven, and ActiveData tools can help you and your team identify and correct potentially disastrous spreadsheet errors.
