Excel expert David H. Ringstrom, CPA, draws your attention to the What-If Analysis tools available within Excel’s Data menu in this presentation. He shows you how and when to make use of Excel’s Scenario Manager as well as how to use the Data Table feature to compare calculation results based on two or three inputs. In addition, David explains how Excel’s Goal Seek feature empowers you to perform basic what-if analyses, in effect, solving for a single value.
David demonstrates every technique at least twice: first, on a PowerPoint slide with numbered steps, and second, in Excel 2016. He’ll draw to your attention any differences in Excel 2013, 2010, or 2007 during the presentation as well as in his detailed handouts. David also provides an Excel workbook that includes most of the examples he uses during the webcast.
