Microsoft Excel provides many tools that can be used to perform many different types of data analysis useful to the audit process. Specifically, the Data Analysis Toolpak can be added to Microsoft Excel and can be used to perform a variety of different analyses including sampling, random number generation, correlation, descriptive statistics, histograms, and regression. Additionally, the Fuzzy Lookup add-in can help auditors find inconsistent (or fuzzy) data increasing the likelihood to find mismatched data.
Participants should have Excel for Microsoft 365, Excel 2019, or Excel 2016 installed on their computer prior to attending this workshop. Workshop instructors will be demonstrating Excel for Windows and will make note of Mac differences when significant.
