There are many Excel features and functions payroll professionals might not be aware of that can be used to improve the accuracy and efficiency of payroll production. In this comprehensive webinar, Excel expert David Ringstrom, CPA, explains: mathematics for employee timesheets, date and time formatting and stamping, conditional formatting to highlight HR requirements, password protection for sensitive payroll files and worksheets, salary information formatting, using pivot tables for HR reporting and analysis tasks, and more.


  • Recall how to reformat Social Security Numbers using Excel’s Flash Fill feature
  • Define how to assign random numbers to a data set in Excel
  • Apply password-protection techniques for sensitive payroll files, worksheets, and spreadsheet columns

He draws your attention to 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.
