VLOOKUP retrieves one result to a match request, if that match can be found in the leftmost column of a large dataset. If the data is not laid out properly, or if the data is held as the wrong type, everything crumbles in the spreadsheet. Instead, you can expand your horizons with text, logical, lookup, and math functions – as well as new ways of referencing the data.
This 60 minutes webinar will explore many of the most powerful, dynamic functions available in Excel.
All too often, we get our data from clients that don’t understand how to use Excel, or databases that weren’t set up with our goals in mind. We can spend far too long trying to make the data just right, instead of pulling out the right tool from the toolbox. Integrating IFERROR, ISERROR, and IFNA with VLOOKUP immediately makes it more forgiving, and using MATCH with it makes it more flexible.
You can replace VLOOKUP entirely, sometimes with INDEX and MATCH, and other times with functions you wouldn’t assume, like MAX, SUMIFS, and LARGE. We’ll discuss a number of real-world scenarios where these tools shine.
Simple VLOOKUP is a powerful tool, but there are a thousand ways to tweak it to be more powerful – or to bypass it for more flexible, useful functions. Supplementing VLOOKUP with functions like IFERROR, MATCH, and CONCAT, or using tools like SUMIFS, LARGE, INDEX, MATCH, and SEARCH can build a suite of functionality you can apply to the kind of data you see in the real world.
If you can’t guarantee that your data will be properly structured, VLOOKUP will give you errors and incorrect answers,more often than not.
Why Should You Attend:
Unlike many webinars, Neil’s sessions are 100% hands-on real-world examples of the skills he’s presenting. After this session, you’ll have a screenshot-laden step-by-step guide to performing the techniques we cover, as well as downloadable code for supplemental User Defined Functions.
You’ll be able to apply these skills directly to your work with almost no adjustment, and with a very short learning curve.
