If you're getting started with Excel, creating formulas is one of the first things you should learn. At its heart, Excel is a giant calculator. In fact, a simple way to think about Excel is to consider each cell in a worksheet like an individual calculator. An Excel spreadsheet has millions of cells, which means you have millions of individual calculators to work with. Not only that, but you can create formulas that link different cells together (e.g. add the value in this cell to the value in that cell). You can create formulas that link cells in different worksheets together. And you can even create formulas that link cells in different workbooks together. 

This webinar aims to teach you the essentials of Excel functions and show how to use basic and advance formulas in Excel.

Overview: Excel® Formulas and Functions - Part 1 (Basic)

https://proskilleducator.com/webinar/excel-lookup-functions-part-1-basic...

In this informative session, Excel expert David Ringstrom, CPA, introduces several lookup functions, including VLOOKUP, HLOOKUP, MATCH, and CHOOSE. These powerful Excel functions allow you to rapidly develop accurate spreadsheets and look up information, such as pay rates, item prices, and accounting results, versus manually linking to specific cells. David explains the context of when to use lookup functions, demonstrates troubleshooting techniques, and prepares you to deal with subtle issues that can prevent them from working properly.

David demonstrates every technique at least twice: first, on a PowerPoint slide with numbered steps, and second, in Excel 2016. He draws your attention to any differences in Excel 2013, 2010, or 2007 during the presentation as well as in his detailed handouts. David also provides an Excel workbook that includes most of the examples he uses during the webcast.

Level: Basic

  • Making VLOOKUP look up data from the left by using the CHOOSE function.
