Looking up data in Excel 2013 is a fun thing. Yet many students find it difficult to search for data in Excel due to arcane explanations provided in help files and tutorials.
"Looking up", simply means to search a particular value from a spreadsheet or workbook against a particular value that we know before hand. It can be likened to looking up a word in a dictionary, or a record in a database.
Excel makes it easy to search for values, both in rows and columns. While there are advanced functions also that enable Excel users to search for data "database-style", the HLookup and VLookup functions are their simpler-yet-powerful siblings. Simpler? Yeah! Because, why should you use a cannon to shoot a fly?

I am a telecoms engineer with major in Software and Office Automation. I have a knack of teaching difficult subjects in the most intuitive manner, or so I've been told. I have ventured into some online training courses that I have prepared on subjects of common interest between students and professionals.
I am a Microsoft Office aficionado. Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Visio etc. are my forte. I have designed many macros in VBA for automation too.
I am both a developer and designer. I have programming experience for desktop as well as the web. Vb.net, asp.net, jquery, css and html have all been my companions through out my development years. Lately, I have developed some websites in wordpress/php as well. As a designer; Photoshop, InDesign, Fireworks, Flash etc. have been my tools of the trade.
I have a firm grasp of the English language and am adept in both the spoken and written formats. I have used various software and computing tools to make my online courses graphically rich and intuitive. I hope you'll benefit from them.
