Excel as a GP Tool
Everyone loves Excel and uses it for everything from application development to shopping lists! Belinda Allen, a 19+ year veteran with GP Products, from Smith & Allen Consulting, Inc. in New York City wants to show you how to make Excel one of the most important tools in your financial toolbox. Belinda is a believer in analytics and frequently quotes business guru Tom Peters, “You cannot improve what you do not measure.” Learn how Belinda uses Excel as a tool to extract relevant GP data; and see how she turns the data into useful information that is not only easy to read but quickly readable.
This session uses Excel more extensively than filling in cells and summing rows and columns. It’s what Belinda calls “Minor League Programming.” She’ll talk about topics that include Microsoft Query, Analysis Cubes and tables. Even if these topics scare you, watch this session and see the results. No doubt you’ll become convinced that Excel is your tool of choice!
Do not let the recipients of your reports look at them and quote Winston Churchill… “This report, by its very length, defends itself against the risk of being read.” If nobody reads your reports or benefits from them, why are you doing them?
