Find Files Easily

Are you an organized person? Is everything at your fingertips? If so, good for you. I, unfortunately, am a bit more unorganized and can spend quite a bit of time looking for a specific Excel file. I have found that adding keywords to a file when I create it, can help me locate it later if I don’t remember the name file. It is very easy to do.

  • I wanted to compliment you on the Accounting Fraud – Recent Case Studies (AUCASEMC) course I just took. The ebook was fantastic! Concise, easy to understand, very well structured, and very interesting. Exactly the way I like it. Thank you for putting it together. I feel it took me enough time to be worth 2 CPEs, but it was fantastic nonetheless. Thank you.
