Excel Vlookup

A Step by Step Visual Guide

About the Book

Practice Projects & Solutions Included for Beginners

When you need to find information in a large spreadsheet, or if you are always looking for the same kind of information, then you need to use the Excel Vlookup function. Vlookup works a lot like a phone book. Excel Lookup functions in general are used to look up and extract data from a list or table and insert it into another list or table.

It is widely agreed that close to 60 percent of Excel users leave 80 percent of Excel untouched. That is, most users do not tap into the full potential of Excel’s built-in utilities. Of these utilities, one of the most prolific by far is the Excel Vlookup. Despite the fact that pivot tables have been a cornerstone of Excel for more than 18 years, Vlookup remains one of the most underutilized tools in the entire Microsoft Office Suite.

Having found this book, you are savvy enough to have heard of Excel Vlookup or even have used them on occasion. You have a sense that Vlookup has some power that you are not using, and you want to learn how to leverage that power to increase your productivity quickly.

With only this book, you will be able to increase your productivity, and produce reports in minutes instead of hours.
