**Top 25 Excel Advanced Formulas - Online Course**

**Course Overview**

The old 80/20 rule for software—that 80% of a program’s users use only 20% of a program’s features—doesn’t apply to **Microsoft Excel**. Instead, this program probably operates under what could be called the 95/5 rule: Ninety-five percent of **Excel** users use a mere 5% of the program’s power.

On the other hand, most people know that they could be getting more out of **Excel** if they could only get a leg up on building **formulas** and using **functions**. Unfortunately, this side of **Excel** appears complex and intimidating to the uninitiated, shrouded as it is in the mysteries of mathematics, finance, and impenetrable **spreadsheet** jargon.

Here's the good news.

This practical course to give you the ability to master the **Top 25** **Microsoft Excel** **formulas** with real world examples, by demystifying the building of **worksheet** **formulas**, and presenting the most useful **Excel functions** in an accessible and jargon-free manner. In this tutorial, you will be able to learn important functions such as:

- Financial

- Logical

- Text

- Lookup & Reference, and many more

The entire objective of this course is to dive deep into the **Excel** 2013 environment with regards to **formulas** in in order to make you more productive, efficient, and achieve a greater skillset.

With that said, this course will enhance your comfort level working with **advanced formulas** in **Excel** 2013.

The concepts learned in this course apply to Excel 2007 and 2010 versions of **Microsoft Excel** as well.

This course is designed to provide hands-on experience in understanding the top 25 useful formulas in Microsoft Excel. Tutorials also contain real world examples and scenarios.

**Module 2 - Logical Functions**

Lesson 1: AND and IF Functions

One common use for the AND function is to expand the usefulness of other functions that perform logical tests. Similarly, the IF function tests to see if a specified condition - the logic test - is true or false

Lesson 2: IFERROR and XOR Functions

In this lesson we will look at IFERROR and XOR formulas

**Module 3 - Financial Functions**

Lesson 1: PV and FV Functions

The Present Value or PV function allows the user in determining the current value of a financial asset. For instance, analysts can value a stock by forecasting its future profits, or cash flows, and discounting them back to today to get a current, or present value, for the stock. Likewise, Future Value of FV simply returns the future value of an investment based on periodic, constant payments and a constant interest rate.

Lesson 2: PMT-PPMT-PRICE-YIELD Functions

In this lesson we will look at PMT, PPMT, PRICE and YIELD functions

Lesson 3: PRICE-COUPONDAYS-ACCRINT-ACCRINTM Functions

In this lesson we will look at PRICE, COUPONDAYS, ACCRINT and ACCRINTM functions

Lesson 4: Depreciation Lecture

Depreciation, in accounting terms, is a noncash expense that reduces the value of an asset as a result of wear and tear, age, or obsolescence. Most assets lose their value over time (in other words, they depreciate), and must be replaced once the end of their useful life is reached. This lecture explains the concept of depreciation as well various types of depreciation utilized for assets.

Lesson 5: SLN-SYD-DB-DDB-VDB Functions

In this lesson we will look at SLN, SYD, DB, DDB and VDB functions

**Module 4 - Text Functions**

Lesson 1: TEXT and CONCATENATE Functions

TEXT function is especially useful when you want to embed the numeric output of a formula or function and present it in a particular format inside other text. For example, "Sales last year increased by over $55,878", where the number 55878 has been formatted to reflect currency symbol and thousands separator. The CONCATENATE function joins up to 255 text strings into one text string. The joined items can be text, numbers, cell references, or a combination of those items.

Lesson 2: PROPER-UPPER-LOWER-SUBSTITUE Functions

In this lesson we will look at PROPER, UPPER, LOWER and SUBSTITUTE functions

**Module 5 - Lookup and Reference Function**

Lesson 1: LOOKUP Function Lecture

This is a lecture on the LOOKUP function

Lesson 2: Working with Advanced VLOOKUP

In this lesson we will look at Advanced VLOOKUP

Lesson 3: HLOOKUP-INDEX-MATCH Functions

In this lesson we will look at HLOOKUP, INDEX and MATCH Functions

**Module 6 - Bonus Section**

Lesson 1: Modifying Existing Templates

In this lesson we will look at modifying existing templates

Lesson 2: Copying Macros Between Workbooks
