Event Description

How do you pull a value from a cell into another cell? Do you use a direct cell reference, like =G10? If so, you are probably missing out on some efficiency gains that could be achieved by using a variety of Excel’s lookup functions. Veteran Excel users, who are aware of the VLOOKUP function, are also painfully aware of its limitations–especially that it cannot go left. We will explore how to bypass VLOOKUP’s limitations by nesting functions and by moving beyond VLOOKUP altogether.
