Understanding Excel formulas is essential if you plan to create sophisticated and reliable spreadsheet solutions.
If you feel less than confident about how Excel formulas work, and how to create your own formulas from scratch, then this is the course your need! Essential Excel Formulas and Functions by G Com Solutions examines all of the key elements which go together to make up an Excel formula. The course uses real-world examples to illustrate how to build formulas that solve problems and give meaning to your data.
Here are just some of the techniques you will master:
- You will learn how to create robust formulas which can safely be copied into thousands of rows.
- You will gain an understanding of relative, mixed and absolute references; and when to use, and when not use, those pesky dollar signs.
- You will learn how to use Excel’s text functions to clean up and modify data, prior to creating reports.
- You will become familiar with the use of conditional functions to add power and flexibility to your Excel models.
- And you will learn how to use lookup functions to pull in key information from other worksheets.
