Expert Excel Core Level 4

Formulas and Functions are the key to getting work done in Excel. If you are experienced in Excel but need to start building more complex calculations this one-day course will help you to deepen your understanding.

By the end of this expert level course, you will feel more confident problem-solving in Excel. For example, you will be able to create advanced Range Names and will be able to create 'LOOKUPs' that can return the value of a cell in a table based on the column and row number by using INDEX and MATCH. You will also learn how to solve problems in fewer steps than with traditional formulas with array functions.
