USEFUL EXCEL FORMULAS AND FUNCTIONS

INTRODUCTION FOR USEFUL EXCEL FORMULAS AND FUNCTIONS — Designed for Excel 365, 2019, 2016, 2013, 2010 —

A formula is an expression which calculates the value of a cell. Functions are predefined formulas and are already available in Excel.

Every function has the same structure. It’s not easy to remember which function and which arguments to use for each task. Fortunately, the Insert Function feature in Excel helps you with this.

 

COURSE OBJECTIVES
