Jeff is an excellent instructor. I appreciated the ability to work on the examples as he presented. I also appreciated that he went over each formula twice. I've been using excel in my career for over 20 years and always pick up something new from these webinars. Thank you!

Overview

How do you pull a value from a cell into another cell? Do you use a direct cell reference, like =G10? If so, you are probably missing out on some efficiency gains that could be achieved by using a variety of Excel's lookup functions. Veteran Excel users, who are aware of the VLOOKUP function, are also painfully aware of its limitations--especially that it cannot go left. We will explore how to bypass VLOOKUP's limitations by nesting functions and by moving beyond VLOOKUP altogether.

Major Topics:

  • Using lookup functions as an alternative to direct cell references
  • Understand the limitations of the VLOOKUP function
  • Discover ways to move beyond these limitations

Learning Objectives

  • Recognize when and why a lookup function is better than a direct cell reference
  • Use three of Excel's many lookup functions
  • Gain comfort with the arguments of the functions presented

Designed for:

Accounting professionals using Excel for Windows

Prerequisite:

Basic knowledge of Excel for Windows

Advanced Preparation:

None
