Description

This course will enter a month’s worth of data input into an accounting system using Excel, which has already been set up and includes one month of data input.

Learners will learn how to navigate Microsoft Excel and use a well-designed accounting worksheet, complete with a general journal, trial balance, general ledger, subsidiary ledgers for accounts receivable, accounts payable, & inventory, financial statements, and much more.

Excel is an excellent tool to learn accounting because it is much more transparent than a database program, like accounting software. QuickBooks is a typical example of accounting software.

For most new steps in our accounting practice problem, you will have access to a downloadable Excel Workbook containing at least two tabs, one with the answer, the new tasks completed, the other starting where the prior presentation left off.

As we enter the second month of data input, we will analyze the current month’s data and the year-to-date data. We will use Excel to understand how accounting software like QuickBooks generates reports for different periods, including reports for one month, multiple months, and comparative reports.

The course will demonstrate transactions for each accounting cycle, the revenue cycle, the purchases cycle, and the payroll cycle.
