BCU Webinars Webinar

Disaster Proofing Excel Spreadsheets

Join author and Excel expert David Ringstrom, CPA, to gain more control over your spreadsheets! Learn to configure AutoRecover settings and enable automatic backups, set up worksheet and workbook protection to prevent unauthorized changes, and how to repair damaged workbooks.

Every technique will be demonstrated twice: first, on a PowerPoint slide with numbered steps, and second, in the subscription-based Excel for Microsoft 365. We’ll cover differences in Excel 2021, 2019 or 2016 during the presentation and in detailed handouts, which also include most of the examples used in the demonstrations.
