Before you read what I have to say, see what my students are saying about my courses on Excel:

"I would like to tell you that I am very impressed with your courses so far - I particularly like the short videos that allow me to get to a topic quickly and then move on (your competitors mostly offer 20-30 min videos which is a bit much to keep one's attention span). The other gem in your training are the shortcuts, I found no other course with the same insights." by Peter Klugsberger, Australia, ex-McKinsey & Co., served various senior roles (CEO, COO) in various companies

“I thought you knew me - You solved the exact problem which I face at my office in your course” by Rajesh Dhoot, India, ex-Sr. Manager, Finance and Accounts, Ultratech Cements – An Aditya Birla Group Co.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The top seven functions for data lookup are VLOOKUP, INDEX, MATCH, SUMIFS, COUNTIFS, INDIRECT, and OFFSET. These alone will cover more than 50% of your Excel tasks - data analysis and MIS reporting requirements.

We have 26 videos of duration 2 hrs. Through practical examples, they start from the foundation and take you to the Ninja level application.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your Question - Why should I take this mini-course on Excel?

Our Response - Because we cover the following -

  1. WHY should we use a certain formula or technique in a given situation
  2. What are the alternative approaches to solving the same problem
  3. Combo formulas and hidden tricks to truly make you a Master of Excel Lookup.  

Example - By itself, VLOOKUP is a one-dimensional (1-D) lookup. We take you to Ninja level where you will also learn to use 2-D, 3-D, combo and reverse lookup. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 

Your Question – So will I learn Pivot table, Sort & Filter?

Our Response – No. This course covers Lookups (1D, 2D, 3D, Combo, Reverse), VLOOKUP, INDEX, MATCH, SUMIFS, COUNTIFS, OFFSET & Conditional Calculations (Sum, Average, Count, and Special Running Total).

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"The courses are really helpful whether in terms of saving time, improving your presentation skills or getting to learn new features. The videos give you the feeling of one to one attention. Moreover, their constant attachment by emailing new tricks is highly appreciating. #thankyouteamyoda" by Arundhati Raychaudhuri, Finance Professional, India

3 conditions (as applicable for Dates & Number):

  • SLABS
  • >=

MATCH() – Basics:

  • MATCH helps count the position number (1st, 2nd, 3rd…) in a one-dimensional data range
MATCH() - Basics
03:37

MATCH() with 1:

  • Slab
  • with values in ascending order
  • Greater than equal to ( >= )

MATCH() with -1:

  • Slab
  • with values in descending order
  • Less than equal to ( <= )

MATCH() match_type -1 vs. 0 vs. 1

2-D Lookup (Vertical + Horizontal) - VLOOKUP w. MATCH:

  • VLookup + Match is used in dataset with 2-variables as placed in the given format. The two defines the answer which is placed inside the table.

INDIRECT() - Basics
04:17

INDIRECT() – Basics along with Range Naming – Applications [“RE-DIRECTION”]:

Note:

  • Use INDIRECT when you want to change the reference to a cell within a formula without changing the formula itself.
  • Named Cell/Range can be used as an input for INDIRECT
  • Often used to create 3D Lookup formulas along with VLookup + Match
  • INDIRECT() is used for references within the SAME workbook. Cross-linking different workbook is best avoided as it works only when all relevant workbooks are open - Yields a #REF! error if not done so
INDIRECT() w. Range Naming - Applications
06:00
3-D Lookup - VLOOKUP() w. MATCH() w. INDIRECT() - Question
04:17

Important Note: Using =INDIRECT() with Naming for 3-D Lookup. E.g. APAC (Sr.) and APACH (Jr.)

3-D Lookup - VLOOKUP() w. MATCH() w. INDIRECT() - Answer
07:09
Reverse Lookup - Question
03:26
  • IMM vs VM: Both VM and IMM approaches are useful for pulling data from any 2x2 data matrix. However, IMM is useful for reverse Lookup. Unlike VM, IMM doesn’t require the common link values to be in the left-most column of the database.
Reverse Lookup - INDEX() w. MATCH() - 1 of 2
08:12
Reverse Lookup - INDEX() w. MATCH() - 2 of 2
06:05

Note:

  • Use <F4> to lock Criteria_range & Sum_range
  • Maintain SAME HEIGHT of RANGES
  • SUMIFS can accept multiple criteria (127 !) whereas SUMIF can accept only one
SUMIFS() Conditional Summation (1 criteria)
04:26
SUMIFS() Conditional Summation (2 criteria)
04:10
  • If cell A1 contains “21-May-2001”, then the Criteria_1 can be “>=”&A1 indicating date 21-May-2001 onwards. The operators (> < = etc.) has to be enclosed in a pair of double-quotes and concatenated (&) with the cell reference containing valid date(s)
SUMIFS() Conditional Summation (3 criteria) w. date range
05:18
  • Careful use of relative references ($) can help yield differential cumulative running total
SUMIFS() Condition based Selective Cumulative Running Total
05:29

Solution: 2

Used for 2-way list-reconciliation, duplicate count E.g. =COUNTIFS($A$1:$A$100,A1)

Used for Instance No./Occurrence No. =COUNTIFS($A$1:A1,A1)

COUNTIFS() - SingleMultiple Criteria Duplicate Count, Instance No.
