What you will learn

A library of 100+ functions

The most useful functions

Functions that show you how to summarize, count, how to manage absolute and relative references, financial functions, statistical functions, and more.

VLOOKUP and reference functions

VLOOKUP, perhaps Excel’s most famous function, is not always easily understood. Learn this useful function along with 10 other practical functions used to search for and collect values.

Handle dates and text

Something that even experienced Excel users know is complicated are dates and texts in tables or databases. Use functions such as WEEKDAY, WORKINGDAYS, MID, and many other smart tips and tricks to get your data in order and manage it correctly.
