## Course Description

Microsoft Excel contains hundreds of built in functions, such as SUM, AVERAGE, MIN, IF, VLOOKUP and many more. In this Microsoft Excel Advanced Functions course, you will learn two of the most powerful functions Excel has to offer. Tasks that would normally require complex, specific setups and a lot of back and forth, can be completed with ease using these functions you'll master during this course.

Not all Excel Functions are Created Equal

As you participate in this course I'll guide through a series of exercises tailored to give you the greatest exposure and step by step instruction as you learn to harness the power of Excel's INDEX() and MATCH() functions.

We'll start out with the fundamental building blocks of creating complex calculations by building a solid foundation, mastering:

• Relative vs. Absolute References
• Using Name Ranges to Create Dynamic Data References
• Function Shortcuts
• Breaking Down the Calculation by using Microsoft Excels Formula Auditing Tools

After you master these building block concepts we will then dive into several real world scenarios, where I'll take you step by step through the finer points of creating dynamic and robust formulas using Excel's INDEX() and MATCH() functions.

• Understand and Implement the INDEX and MATCH functions
• Create Dynamic LOOKUPS by Combining Functions
• Creating ARRAY Functions with INDEX and IF Functions
• Add Multiple Criteria to the INDEX and MATCH Functions
• Combine INDEX/MATCH and MIN to Return Associated Data Points
• Build Complex Conditional Formatting with Calculations
