Lookup formulas are far superior to manually searching for specific data elements in a spreadsheet. VLOOKUP, HLOOKUP, INDEX and MATCH are some of the most well-known (and most useful) functions in Excel which are used to to return data from other locations in worksheets.

VLOOKUP enables you to quickly and easily look for a value down a column of data and return a value from the same row in a different column. Perfect for when working with large tabular data.

INDEX and MATCH work in a similar way but provide more flexibility.

If you handle large amounts of data in Excel, this webinar will help you tremendously.

The training will be delivered using Excel 2016 for Windows although for users of earlier versions, most of the functionality is available in Excel 2010 and Excel 2013.

Course Objectives:

• Recognize when and why a lookup function is better than a direct cell reference
• Gain comfort with the arguments of the functions presented
• Utilize Excel lookup functions to become more efficient in Excel
• Find alternatives to error messages when data is not available

Why Should You Attend:

This webinar is for any user of Excel who works with large amounts of data and has data in multiple worksheets.  Learning about the lookup functions will allow you to match data between databases.

In just one fast-paced and informative training session, you’ll learn how to use lookup functions to let you work with your data more efficiently, and gain powerful new tools to help you manipulate data and make better business decisions.
