In the third presentation of the series on Excel macros, you’ll learn how to expand your ability to write programming code. Excel expert David Ringstrom shows you how to create a macro that can reset workbooks that have skewed scrollbars, as well as a second macro that can be used to instantly unhide all worksheets in a workbook at once. David goes deeper into making decisions in programming code by comparing If and Select Case statements. He also contrasts three ways of creating loops in Excel: For Each, Do While, and Do Until. In addition, David explains how to troubleshoot problematic loops in Excel, which in certain instances can cause Excel to crash.
David demonstrates every technique at least twice: first, on a PowerPoint slide with numbered steps, and second, in Excel 2016. 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.
