Mastering Excel Formulas and Functions: Become a Power User and Boost Your Efficiency

Duration: 90 minutes

Most people limit themselves to a handful of formulas and functions Microsoft Excel. They don’t know how to tap into the many powerful Excel functions and extended capabilities that can make you far more productive every day. (more details below)


WHY ATTEND

Excel has more than 300 built-in functions. And it’s no easy task to know which ones might be useful to you. That’s what this Webinar is about – exploring the tools most likely to help you.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Expert Excel trainer Dennis Taylor will cover how to:

  • Simplify searching for data in tables with the lookup functions VLOOKUP, INDEX, and MATCH. 
  • Categorize data more effectively by using the master date and time functions 
  • Debug formulas that are giving you incorrect answers
  • Create short, simple formulas by using specialized rounding functions and basic statistical and financial functions 
  • Use “array functions” that will help you tackle difficult formulas that deal with massive amounts of data.
  • Use frequently overlooked TEXT functions so you can extract data from within cells, combine data from different cells and give you cleanup tools for dealing with problems such as: 
    • leading or trailing spaces
    • upper/lowercase changes
    • trailing minus signs, and 
    • text/value conversions.
  • Gain programming-like capability by mastering the IF, AND, OR, and CHOOSE functions
  • Use the power functions SUMIF and COUNTIF to help you tabulate database totals with ease
