Overview

How do you pull a value from a cell into another cell? Do you use a direct cell reference, like =G10? If so, you are probably missing out on some efficiency gains that could be achieved by using a variety of Excel's lookup functions. Veteran Excel users, who are aware of the VLOOKUP function, are also painfully aware of its limitations--especially that it cannot go left. We will explore how to bypass VLOOKUP's limitations by nesting functions and by moving beyond VLOOKUP altogether.

Major Topics:

  • Using lookup functions as an alternative to direct cell references
  • Understand the limitations of the VLOOKUP function
  • Discover ways to move beyond these limitations

Learning Objectives

  • Recognize when and why a lookup function is better than a direct cell reference
  • Use three of Excel's many lookup functions
  • Gain comfort with the arguments of the functions presented
