In this advanced math workshop, we will work with multipart functions such as IF() and VLOOKUP() statements.
An IF statement is a three-part function that allows you to change the result based on a logic statement, you can return one value if the answer is TRUE and another if the answer is FALSE.
A VLOOKUP() statement is a four-part function that allows you to search for a value in a large data set, and return a different value from that same row. For example, if you a large data set of Employee Numbers, Names, and Titles, you can have Excel search for the Employee Number through the VLOOKUP function and have it return the Employee's Name and Title. We will also use Data Validation to create drop-down lists that help with data entry. We'll use the results of the list in our functions.
Experience with building equations in Excel required.
