Excel offers a set of tools that allows you to explore more in detail data analysis and complex formulae. In this 8-video course, you will learn how to use different formulae to make calculations when you have multiple conditions imposed. You will also become able to forecast data by using the NPER function. Key concepts covered in this course include how to import, edit, and update data from a text file; how to import, edit and update data from a .csv file; and how to use the LOOKUP, MATCH, and INDEX functions to extract data. Next, you will learn how to run multiple conditions without nesting other functions; examine how to calculate averages by using one or more conditions; and learn how to calculate the smallest and the largest numbers that meet one or more criteria. Finally, learn how to count cells that meet one or more criteria; and how to calculate the number of periods to pay a loan and forecast loan approval that meet one or more criteria. In order to practice what you have learned, you will find the Word document named Excel 2019 for Windows: Managing Data Exercise as well as the associated materials in the Resources section.

You can use the LOOKUP formula to find a value in a double entry table that you have created in Excel. You can, for example, use it to find a client's address based on their last name. You can also use the INDEX formula to return a particular value in a table if you know its row and column coordinates.
• 4.  Using the IFS & SWITCH functions in Excel 2019 for Windows

• 5.  Calculating average with different conditions in Excel 2019 for Windows
If you need to calculate the average in a certain range but have a criteria to apply, you can use the AVERAGEIF font ion. Excel also proposes the AVERAGEIFS function that calculates the average in a range if you have more than one criteria.
• 6.  Using the MAXIFS & MINIFS functions in Excel 2019 for Windows
The MINIFS and MAXIFS functions allow you to find the minimum and maximum value in a range after applying one or more criteria. You can use logical operators and wild card for partial matching if necessary.
• 7.  Finding data with multiple conditions in Excel 2019 for Windows
You can use the COUNTIFS function when you need to count the number of cells that meet one or more criteria. With COUNTIFS, you can apply more than one criteria in more than one range. Excel also offers the NOT function, that returns the opposite of a logical value. Combined with the IF function you can determine, for example, the availability of a product.
• 8.  Forecasting data in Excel 2019 for Windows
