Overview

Many Excel users pull values from one cell into another by using direct cell references (for example, =G10). This may work, but users relying on it miss out on the major efficiency gains that can be achieved by using a variety of Excel lookup functions. Power users of Excel are aware of and use the VLookup function, but they are also painfully aware of its limitations—especially that it cannot go left. The most expert Excel users know how to bypass those limitations by using nesting functions and the real Excel rock stars know about capabilities that let them move beyond VLookup altogether. In this third module of the Excel Critical Skills Certificate Program we will unlock these secrets for you. Upon completing this two-hour module and passing the mastery quiz you’ll be able to get the maximum capability and productivity from VLookups and other lookup functions—and you’ll be ready to master the Holy Grail of Excel accounting and finance pro skills, the use of Pivot Tables—in the fourth and final module of the certificate program.

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:

Completion of Part 1 and 2 and passage of the Mastery Quiz

Advanced Preparation:

None
