An Excel formula is an equation or calculation that is stored in a worksheet cell. A formula enables you to perform simple or complex calculations on numbers. So think of any scenario that involves addition, subtraction, division, or multiplication and that’s where you’d use a formula.

Functions are built-in formulas that have been programmed to perform a specific calculation. They range from simple such as SUM and AVERAGE (used to calculate the total and average of numbers in a range of cells) to the powerful IF and VLOOKUP.

Functions aren’t limited to calculating numeric data. They can save you a ton of time when working with text and dates too.

  • Need to calculate someone’s age from their date of birth?
  • Need to combine text items from several cells into a single cell?
  • Need to convert a list of lower-case text items to capital letters?
  • Need to compare items in two lists?

This almost 3-hour (150-minute) webinar will show how all of the above (and much more!) can be done by using Excel functions.


Although it is perfectly possible to use Excel without ever creating a formula if you don’t, you’re missing out on a huge part of the application’s power.

Learning how to create formulas will automate your calculations and save you a ton of time. No more using your fingers. No more mental arithmetic. No more using the calculator app on your Smartphone! Let Excel do the work for you!

Excel has over 450 built-in Worksheet Functions (pre-defined formulas). Nobody needs to know them all however, no matter what your job role is, no matter what industry you work in, there are some key Functions that everyone should know how to use.

This 150-minute practical, hands-on workshop will cover powerful MS Excel Functions and Formulas in detail and show how you can use them to increase your productivity 10X and save a ton of time.
