This lecture explains, in depth, how to use one of the most popular and powerful functions of Excel - Lookups.
Specifically, we go through vertical and horizontal lookups (vlookup & hlookup), including why,when and how to use them.
Ever wondered if you could use words and name instead of cell references? Wouldn't you rather point your looks to the volumes table rather than $A$1:$B$18? Well named ranges allow you do just that - in this lecture you learn how to create, modify and use named ranges, including in lookup formulas.
In this lecture I show you how to create, edit and delete comments in Excel. The lesson also discusses when comments should be used and when to avoid them.
Lastly I show you how to print comments.
In this lesson you will learn how to print excel spreadsheets. You will learn how to prepare documents so you can print what you want to. I will show you how to set up documents, go through different page views and learn how to add the same (column) header to each of your page.
Lastly I will show you how to save your documents in PDF so they can easily be sent via emails or otherwise distributed.
