Empower yourself using Functions in Microsoft Excel. Solve dozens of Excel’s trickiest problems today.
There are 448 functions in Microsoft Excel 2013. Most people will probably use no more than 10 functions in their entire lifetime. Further, functions can be used with standard relative references to cells, or to absolute references, named ranges, dynamic named ranges, table ranges, and 3D references - but most users don’t know the benefits of different reference types. Due to popular demand, we’ve created a Virtual Boot Camp to explore some of the most powerful and useful functions for business.
However, if you work in Excel frequently, sooner or later you will likely need a specific function, that you may not currently be aware even exists, to perform a special task. Here is a way figure out which function you need from within Excel.
By creating named ranges in everyday spreadsheets, functions that use them become more easily updated and dynamic. This can be done manually, or you can use the incredible new Table feature in Excel. These tools are critical for anyone who uses Excel regularly. Being able to clean up data, work with dates, and combine new information with existing spreadsheets are essential skills, and with the Text, Date, and Lookup function families, there is a wealth of power available. Finally, a spreadsheet is only valuable if it can provide insight, and the Logic function family gives you access to that.
