As an Excel user you've probably heard a lot about VLOOKUP and other lookup functions. But what can lookup functions do, why should you use them, and how can they help you?
In essence, lookup functions search through data and return specific values. You may be asking yourself, “Well, why can’t I just do a manual search through my data with ctrl-f and find what I need that way?” And sure, that’s fine if you only need to look up one or two things. But what if you have ten, a hundred, or even thousands of things you have to search for and search through?
That’s where lookup functions come in, they are all about making Excel do the work for you. They can help you to quickly and efficiently retrieve data which saves you time and effort.
This course is a comprehensive deep dive into Excel’s lookup functions including (but certainly not limited to) the ever-popular VLOOKUP, my personal favorite, INDEX-MATCH, and the new function, XLOOKUP. It will give you a solid foundation of lookup function knowledge, but also challenge you to learn about and create nested and two-dimensional lookup functions that can really take your Excel capabilities to the next level.
In this course you'll get:
Detailed video walkthroughs so that you can feel confident about each step
Copies of all the files used in the course videos so that you can follow along and practice
Exercises that will challenge your understanding and deepen your lookup knowledge.
By the end of this course you’ll be able to confidently use lookup functions, perform two-dimensional lookups, create nested lookup functions, use data validation in your lookup projects, and know how to correct common errors, among many other things.

My talent is taking complex subjects (like Excel, Access and Photoshop) and making them simple to learn. I wasn't always good at technology. There was a time when I didn't even know how to correctly turn a computer on and off. But over the past 20 years I've dedicated myself to mastering technology. Now I'm proud to call myself a self-taught tech geek.
I'm a geek who still speaks the language of normal human beings. I don't use a lot of jargon and fancy words that the average person doesn't understand.
I understand how frustrating it can be when the instructor goes too fast or leaves out critical steps in the learning process. That's why I make sure to clearly demonstrate each step for you visually, so you can follow along starting from the very beginning and going along until you've reached mastery.
