Description

Have you ever had a need to Compare two datasets or worksheets?

As an entrepreneur, accountant, HR personnel, stock broker, etc. comparing two datasets becomes a regular task in your career.

Whether it is to compare employee datasets, salary or payroll, stocks, sales commission and so much more; you will definitely find yourself coming across tabular worksheets from time to time.

It can get pretty tasking and most discouraging is the fact that traditional methods which you often used in Microsoft Excel such as functions, formula and power query; are not always reliable or can provide you answers.

If you are in the category mentioned above, worry no more. The perfect solution is here — Smart VBA Excel Workbook. With it, you can now find new data, deleted data, variances.

What if I say you could find out CELL level Variances with just a few clicks using the Compare data workbook? Sounds amazing?

That is what Compare Data Excel VBA workbook is designed to do; it compares two similarly structured datasets or worksheets by Row and then by Each CELL.

  • You will typically have datasets or worksheet in periodic format, i.e. Last months dataset and Current Months dataset, and you would like to find out variances first at Row level and then at CELL level.

  • Compare data workbook finds out added data in a current month, removed data in a current month (from last month) and for datasets/rows/records which are existing in both places (Last month and current month), it highlights variances at each cell level.

This is something awesome, and it is difficult to achieve this with traditional Excel formulas and function or even with Modern excel tools like Power Query Joins. The only way out is smart VBA coding in Excel.

In this course, I will walk you through on how to use this fantastic compare data workbook and teach you:

  • How to set up the workbook for best results.

  • How to change important VBA Code settings to suit your need.

  • How to change the formatting of added data, removed data and variance data.

  • How to set up this workbook in an ideal way so that you can create truly dynamic and reusable reports for any complex data analysis.

In the end, we will go through two practical examples:

  • We will analyse the Mutual fund portfolio to find out critical variances between the two dates (position).

  • We will go through a comprehensive Payroll analysis exercise where I will create fantastic Payroll variance dashboard to find out variances for various pay types (Basic, HRA, Overtime, deduction etc.) in complex payroll data.

  • With these examples, you will also learn how to set up this workbook to maximise your productivity.

The thing I am most excited to share with you is Modern Excel Tools training and its basics to make your life easier as an Accountant or Analyst for Data cleaning, and Report automation

With Techniques I have acquired using Excel for so many years, I pretty sure I can reduce your routine workflow (time and efforts) to half or even more.

While I love traditional formulas and function, Pivot tables and Excel VBA, I feel that its time to go beyond and discover amazing Power Tools offered by Microsoft these days.

These tools include Power Query for Excel (Get and Transform), DAX formulas Engine with Excel Power Pivot.

Don't worry if you have not heard about these tools, you will learn about them in details (basics to advanced) with me without any pain!

My Speciality lies in Data Analytics and ETL (Extract Transform and Load)

While formulas, Functions, Excel VBA can automate reporting and calculations for your projects, but when you are dealing with repetitive tasks, there is nothing better than Power Query.

So I am a big proponent of Automation of Data and reporting: Source data to Reporting with minimum manual steps involved with 100% Accuracy of Output reports

By the way, I am a Chartered Accountant by Qualification, and well versed with hands-on Corporate Financial Accounting and Reporting for diversified industries
