Master 75+ Excel formulas with hands-on demos from a best-selling Microsoft Excel instructor (Excel ’07 – Excel 2019)

It’s time to show Excel who’s boss. Whether you’re starting from square one or aspiring to become an absolute Excel power user, you’ve come to the right place.

This course will give you a deep understanding of the advanced Excel formulas and functions that transform Excel from a basic spreadsheet program into a dynamic and powerful analytics tool. While most Excel courses focus on simply what each formula does, I teach through hands-on, contextual examples designed to showcase why these formulas are awesome and how they can be applied in a number of ways. I will not train you to regurgitate functions and formula syntax; I will teach you how to THINK like Excel.

By the end of the course you’ll be writing robust, elegant formulas and functions from scratch, allowing you to:

  • Easily build dynamic tools & Excel dashboards to filter, display and analyze your data
  • Go rogue and design your own formula-based Excel formatting rules
  • Join datasets from multiple sources with Excel’s LOOKUP, INDEX & MATCH functions
  • Pull real-time data from APIs directly into Excel (weather, stock quotes, directions, etc.)
  • Manipulate dates, times, text, and arrays
  • Automate tedious and time-consuming tasks using cell formulas and functions in Excel (no VBA required!)

We’ll dive into a broad range of Excel formulas & functions, including:

  • Lookup/Reference functions
  • Statistical functions
  • Formula-based formatting
  • Date & Time functions
  • Logical operators
  • Array formulas
  • Text functions
  • INDIRECT & HYPERLINK
  • Web scraping with WEBSERVICE & FILTERXML
