Many Excel users have a love-hate relationship with workbook links. For the uninitiated, workbook links allow you to connect one Microsoft Excel spreadsheet to other spreadsheets, Word documents, databases, and even web pages.
In this presentation Excel expert David Ringstrom, CPA discusses the pros and cons of workbook links, and walks you through the nuances of creating workbook links. David will also show how to dramatically improve the integrity of linked workbooks by using Microsoft Query instead of traditional cell-based links.
David will teach from primarily from Excel 2010, will discuss new features in Excel 2013 when applicable, as well as differences in Excel 2007. Discussion of Excel 2003 will be limited to questions from the audience.
