Many Excel users rely on VLOOKUP to return data from other locations in a worksheet.  But VLOOKUP isn’t always the most efficient approach.  In this webinar, you’ll learn how to use alternative lookup functions, including the INDEX and MATCH, SUMIF, SUMIFS, SUMPRODUCT, IFNA, and OFFSET functions. Upon completion of this course, you’ll be able to:

  • Apply a variety of lookup formulas in order to work more efficiently in Excel
  • Recognize why the INDEX and MATCH combination often is superior to VLOOKUP or HLOOKUP
  • Apply the SUMIF and SUMIFS functions
  • Use the IFERROR function to display something other than an #N/A error value when VLOOKUP can’t find a match
  • Perform dual lookups, allowing you to look across columns and down rows to cross-reference data you need
  • Use the MATCH function to find the position of an item on a list
  • View two worksheets from within the same workbook at the same time
  • Perform horizontal matches with the HLOOKUP function
  • Future-proof VLOOKUP by using Excel’s Table feature versus referencing static ranges

David demonstrates every technique at least twice, first on a PowerPoint slide with numbered steps, and second in Excel 2016. He’ll draw to your attention any differences in Excel 2013, 2010, or 2007 during the presentation, as well as in his detailed handouts.
