Using the Dynamic Array Filter Function to automatically select audit transactions
Hello my auditing friends, this is a quick post to show how to use Excel Dynamic Arrays to help take the pain out of selecting transactions to audit.
To demonstrate, I will use an export of a QuickBooks Online report for the Repairs and Maintenance account.
Could there be some uncapitalized expenses in there? Never - right?
Here is the report . . .
Here is the formula to show all transaction greater than $1,000
=FILTER( entire_range_to_return, range_to_filter[=,>,<,<> . .][value])
(in this example)
** You only type the formula into the first cell, Excel "spills" as needed to adjacent cells. Welcome to Dynamic Arrays!!
Dig in . . .
Ok, that is just the start. To dig in check out the articles at ExcelJet and start dreaming.
