About This Course

Microsoft Excel is, without a doubt, one of the most commonly used programs on the planet. And for good reason. Microsoft Excel is so robust that it can be applied to almost any situation. From recording numbers to measuring astronomical data to launching satellites into space, there’s a lot that goes into it. I’m not making this up. Even  engineers use Microsoft Excel for a variety of calculations, including the study of framed structures. The Vlookup function is used to lookup a value with a reference cell and retrieve the value from a lookup table list. It is a very useful and commonly used excel function. To find the value, we can use a table or a single column. And the whole lookup can be performed in a vertical region or using just columns. VLOOKUP operates in a very unique manner. The parameters used in VLOOKUP are initially perplexing. With basic explanations and data sets, this course will help you understand the formula as well as the parameters. This course is a detailed look at Excel’s lookup features, including (but not limited to) the ever-popular VLOOKUP, my personal preference, INDEX-MATCH, and the new XLOOKUP feature. It will not only provide you with a sound base in lookup functions, but it will also push you to think about and develop nested and two-dimensional lookup functions, which will greatly expand your Excel capabilities. You’ll be able to use lookup functions comfortably, conduct two-dimensional lookups, build nested lookup functions, use data validation in your lookup projects, and fix common errors by the end of this course, among other things.
