Hi Friends, welcome to our 18th Member Mondays, for this week we congratulate DAVID BERNTSEN. David has been with the group for quite some time now and he has been a great support to the group since then. With his wide experience with Excel, he sure is able to share his knowledge and expertise with all of us. With this I want to thank you David, for all the help, support and contributions you gave not only with our group but also to the whole Excel Community. We are truly grateful to have you in our group. May you continue to share your insights and help everyone in our Community.
To know more about David and his journey with Excel, we decided to asked him some questions and advice that he can give to the whole Excel for Freelancers community, and here’s what we got:
1.How did your start your Excel journey?
I started with Excel and Access in 1995 when I started my company.
2. Why did you chose Excel?
I chose Excel because it was part of Microsoft Office, its smooth integration with Access and Word, and the VBA part of Excel. Prior to this I used DOS based Supercalc and Word Perfect, and integration was not easy.
3. How long have you been working with Excel?
4. How has Excel for Freelancers helped you?
Excel for Freelancers makes me learn new things. When others post a question to which I don’t know the immediate answer of, I get interested to find a solution. Also, I have learned new ways of doing things in Excel and new coding from Randy’s amazing Excel videos as well as his course Advanced Excel Dashboard Reports Masterclass, which I can strongly recommend.
5. What are your goals?
My goal is to continue to learn new aspects and new ways of doing things in Excel, and that I will be able to contribute with my knowledge in helping others.
6. What advice can you give to our members?
My best advice would be to obtain new Excel knowledge as you are creating Excel models, don’t stop until you are satisfied with your work, and seek to create flexible, efficient, and user friendly models that require a minimum of maintenance, and make calculations as automatic as possible. If the quality of the model structure is good, then you can rely more on that data is calculated correctly. Excel knowledge is not a final destination, but a journey towards your goals.
