Microsoft Excel contains almost 500 built-in worksheet functions. Strip away the ones nobody uses. Discount the ones that have a specialized use-case and you’re left with a small set of functions that all Excel users should know, regardless of their job function, industry, or business sector. This webinar covers ten of Excel’s most popular productivity-boosting functions.
- IF: Automate data entry…if this condition is true, enter this value into a cell else enter that value into a cell
- COUNTIF: Count how many times a particular value (date, number, text) appears within a range (e.g. how many times was Customer X a late payer?)
- SUMIF: Add up a set of numbers that match a criteria (e.g. what was the total number of hours worked on Project 123)
- IFERROR: Want to get rid of those ugly #DIV/0 and #N/A errors? IFERROR is your friend
- XLOOKUP: Often referred to as "VLOOKUP on steroids", XLOOKUP is the new kid in town, making searching for data in a tabular list quick, simple and straightforward
- UNIQUE: Quickly generate a unique list of items in a single step
- FILTER: Quickly generate a dynamic list of filtered items
- SORT: Quickly generate a sorted list of items. Combine the SORT function with the UNIQUE function for extra power!
- GETPIVOTDATA: If you ever need to refer to a cell inside a pivot table, the GETPIVOTDATA function has you covered
- SUBTOTAL: Storing list-based data in a table is best practice. But what if you need to generate a total, count or average from filtered data In the Table? The SUBTOTAL function is just what you need
