VLOOKUP is one of the most requested Excel function tutorials that I've received in over eight years of providing corporate training in Microsoft Excel. All too often, professional Excel users get caught up in inefficient and problematic workflows, and nested conditionals (nested IF statements) are certainly towards the top of the list. Learn to solve this, and other problems, by utilizing the VLOOKUP, HLOOKUP, and LOOKUP functions.
Some of the abilities you'll gain by understanding these functions are:
Eliminate nested conditional (IF) statements
Pull data from disjointed or broken tables
Allow for autofill even when a reference table is transposed
Create scalable drop-down validation lists
