This 8-video course provides an in-depth exploration of tools available for data analysis, and it examines complex formulae in Excel for Office 365. Learners will observe how to use Power Query to transform the data to fit an Excel file. This course demonstrates how Excel allows you to import and edit data from a CSV (comma separated value) file. You will then learn how to use the LOOK UP formula to find a value in a double entry table. This course continues by demonstrating how to use different formulae to make calculations when multiple conditions have been imposed. You will examine the IFS and switch function to test multiple conditions without nesting the IF function. Next, you will learn how to use the AVERAGEIF, the MINIFS, and MAXIFS functions. You will learn to how use the NPER (number of periods required) function to calculate the number of months to reimburse a loan. Finally, you will learn how to use the IF and AND functions to forecast data.

## WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

• Import, edit and update data from a text file
Import, edit and update data from a .csv file
Use the lookup, match and index functions to extract data
Run multiple conditions without nesting other functions
• Calculate averages using one or more conditions

• 3.  Finding a value in a double entry table in Excel Microsoft 365 for Windows
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. It's also possible to 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 Microsoft 365 for Windows
The IFS and SWITCH functions allow you to test multiple conditions without nesting the IF function. With IFS, you can use different operators, while with SWITCH you can get a result for a non-exact match.
• 5.  Calculating average with different conditions in Excel Microsoft 365 for Windows
If you need to calculate the average in a certain range but have a criteria to apply, you can use the AVERAGEIF function. 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 Microsoft 365 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 Microsoft 365 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 Microsoft 365 for Windows
If you want to calculate how many months it will take you to reimburse a loan according to a fixed monthly payment and a rate, you can use the NPER function. You can combine the NPER function with the IF and AND functions and forecast data that meet one or more criteria.
