Sorting Data By Cell Color In Excel
The improvements to conditional formatting
beginning in Excel 2007 are potentially among the most beneficial of all of the
enhancements to Excel for accountants and other business professionals. Now,
with just a few clicks of the mouse, users can quickly apply colors to large

For those who create numerous PowerPoint
presentations and apply animation to either entire slides or to objects on
slides, PowerPoint 2010 offers a real treat to you - the Animation
Painter. Very similar in nature and function to the Format Painter
found in most of the Microsoft Office applications, Animation Painter copies all
of the animation from one object to other objects.

not act with due diligence. It is no longer optional for accountants to
understand the security risks they face and adopt control procedures to
insure compliance with their legal and fiduciary responsibilities.
This course not only
clearly identifies the security risks accountants face, it also provides
