Hello and welcome to this course on the VLOOKUP and XLOOKUP functions in Excel.

In this course, we shall go through the VLOOKUP and XLOOKUP functions in Excel to have a look at what they are, how to use them and some examples of using each. VLOOKUP and XLOOKUP are handy built-in functions in Excel that are used to find and retrieve information from datasets or tables. Throughout this course, I assume you have absolutely no knowledge of Excel or even spreadsheets in general, so I will take you right from the start and describe each step in terms you will understand. We will have a look at each section of the VLOOKUP and XLOOKUP syntax as well as looking at examples with each. Some of the sections we cover in the course are:

  • The syntax of each function
  • Exact matching and approximate matching
  • Match_mode
  • Search_mode
  • Rules to follow to avoid common errors
  • NA Errors
  • Using wildcards with each function
  • Using the insert function option
  • Using the functions across different tabs and spreadsheets

This course is ideal for anyone who wants to learn what the VLOOKUP and XLOOKUP functions are and how to use them. You may have been using VLOOKUP for years but are ready to find out what XLOOKUP can do for you instead, or you may just want refreshers on using both of these functions.
