High Impact Excel: LookUp Formulas
Look-up formulas add automation to Excel spreadsheets in that users are freed from having to manually point to a designated cell that contains text or numbers. For instance, you might use look-up formulas to return the price for an inventory item, or use SUMIF or SUMIFS to summarize data based upon one or more criteria.

In this session Excel expert David Ringstrom introduces beginners to the VLOOKUP function, and then goes beyond the basics with a discussion of the MATCH, CHOOSE, INDEX, SUMIF, SUMIFS, and SUMPRODUCT functions.

David's presentations are fast-paced, so even seasoned Excel users are likely to learn several new tricks and techniques. David will teach primarily from Excel 2010 but will cover differences in Excel 2003, 2007, and 2013 where applicable.

  • Understand VLOOKUP and its nuances and restrictions
  • Explore alternatives to VLOOKUP, such as MATCH/INDEX, SUMIF, and SUMIFS.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!
