An Excel Expert & BI Enthusiast, ACA, Finance & Accounting Professional

Hey, I am Prashant Panchal. I like helping fellow Accountants, Auditors and Analysts to become PRO at using Microsoft Excel.

I have been using Excel for mainly Accounting and Analytics for more than 13 years and I quite enthusiastic about sharing my knowledge with fellow Accountants, Analysts, or any Excel user

I have come across many challenging reporting and analytics situations during my career, and I was able to resolve the same using good old Microsoft Excel Spreadsheet application.

With me, you will find Basic to Advanced Excel formulas and Functions, Tips and Tricks, Excel VBA ready to use codes.

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
