VLOOKUP, HLOOKUP, INDEX, and MATCH are some of the most well-known (and most useful) functions in Excel being able to create and edit macros is one of the must-have skills for Excel Power Users. Having this knowledge will save you hours by allowing you to automate any Excel-based task or process. If you’ve never created macros or used VBA before, this webinar is for you.
Excel functions can greatly enhance your ability to perform tasks in day to day activities in Excel. While there are hundreds of functions available, there are 10 functions that all Excel users should know. Whether you are an office worker, or a small business owner using Excel to keep track of your finances or just the casual user, these Excel functions can be very important time savers, and enhance your ability to create better-performing spreadsheets.
Learning about the lookup functions will allow you to match data between databases. VLOOKUP enables you to quickly and easily look for value down a column of data and return a value from the same row in a different column. Perfect for when working with large tabular data. INDEX and MATCH work in a similar way but provide more flexibility.
