Lookup Functions for Excel

Find the data you need fast with Excel’s lookup functions!

For larger collections of data, locating certain information about your data is vitally important to effectively analyze it. Lookup functions are one way by which spreadsheets allow us to automate the process of finding values and storing information about them – making data management much easier.

You’ll explore the various lookup functions Excel has to offer you and learn how to implement them to store valuable information about sets of data. Using various kinds of sample data, you’ll also master how and why these techniques can be applied to many different situations for effective decision-making.

No matter the size of your data sets, lookup functions are a powerful tool that will level up your Excel skills and give you the knowledge you need to process your data productively.

I love the lectures, concise course objectives, and how they not only teach you enough to get started, but prepare you for the advanced stuff later down the road.



With Zenva, I started learning a more accurate way to approach problems and develop solutions. It’s full of interesting topics that I love to learn in conjunction with my work.



I chose Zenva because of the large selection of topics and the fact that I can choose what courses I want to take whenever I want to take them. That level of freedom is unique to Zenva.



The Unity courses at Zenva helped me achieve a level of comfort with game development that I didn’t think was possible. They give you the confidence to expand your skills, and were so easy to understand.
