Workbooks with a lot of data can make it difficult to find certain pieces of information, and to keep error-free. This training focuses on making it easier to find specific information in an Excel workbook, as well as how to debug a worksheet by evaluating formulas.

The course starts with a step-by-step tutorial on the Lookup function, showing you how to create formulas to pull important pieces of data from other areas of your workbook. Learning how to use trace precedent and dependent cells is also discussed in this training. These features help with understanding how your formulas are all connected. The course also demonstrates how to use the Watch Formulas feature to find errors in your calculations. Being able to see the breakdown of each component of a formula can be done in the watch window.
