This course provides a comprehensive examination of the Lookup and Reference category in Excel. It covers the LOOKUP and VLOOKUP functions.
With VLOOKUP, you will learn how to: use Wildcards; search through multiple sheets for a match; and what to do if a match is not in the first column of your table. The course also explores HLOOKUP. It explains the advantages and disadvantages of INDEX MATCH versus VLOOKUP.
The section ends with a brief overview of XLOOKUP() for those users with Excel 2019 or Microsoft 365. XLOOKUP is intended to eventually replace VLOOKUP.
The course reviews the OFFSET function, which allows you to write calculations that automatically update as new data is added. With the INDIRECT function, you will learn how to find data on other worksheets. Finally, HYPERLINK is briefly discussed since it is in the lookup and reference section.
