Microsoft Excel is, without a doubt, one of the most commonly used programs on the planet. And for good reason. Microsoft Excel is so robust that it can be applied to almost any situation. From recording numbers to measuring astronomical data to launching satellites into space, there’s a lot that goes into it. I’m not making this up. Even engineers use Microsoft Excel for a variety of calculations, including the study of framed structures. The Vlookup function is used to lookup a value with a reference cell and retrieve the value from a lookup table list.

It is a very useful and commonly used excel function. To find the value, we can use a table or a single column. And the whole lookup can be performed in a vertical region or using just columns. VLOOKUP operates in a very unique manner. The parameters used in VLOOKUP are initially perplexing. With basic explanations and data sets, this course will help you understand the formula as well as the parameters. This course is a detailed look at Excel’s lookup features, including (but not limited to) the ever-popular VLOOKUP, my personal preference, INDEX-MATCH, and the new XLOOKUP feature. It will not only provide you with a sound base in lookup functions, but it will also push you to think about and develop nested and two-dimensional lookup functions, which will greatly expand your Excel capabilities. You’ll be able to use lookup functions comfortably, conduct two-dimensional lookups, build nested lookup functions, use data validation in your lookup projects, and fix common errors by the end of this course, among other things.

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on Reed Courses, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
