Day 4 more on formulas and functions

  1. 1. Formulas and Functions
  2. 2. Open the file Exercomp  Right click on Yearly Sales and insert a new worksheet for Info  Fill in the documentation as shown  Right click and rename the tab Info
  3. 3. Entering a Formula  A formula is an expression that returns a value  A formula is written using operators that combine different values, returning a single value that is then displayed in the cell  The most commonly used operators are arithmetic operators  The order of precedence is a set of predefined rules used to determine the sequence in which operators are applied in a calculation
  4. 4. Entering a Formula
  5. 5. Entering a Formula
  6. 6. Entering a Formula  Click the cell in which you want the formula results to appear  Type + or = and an expression that calculates a value using cell references and arithmetic operators  Point to all cell references!  Press the Enter key or press the Tab key to complete the formula
  7. 7. Formulas usually use relative references
  8. 8. The Golden Rule of creating formulas  Keep it simple  Always Point  When in doubt, break it out  Format to eyeball  Copy for accuracy  Document all assumptions – use absolute references if need!  Use range names to make formulas make sense  Have Excel help you create functions.
  9. 9. Demo!
  10. 10. Introducing Functions  A function is a named operation that returns a value  For example, to add the values in the range A1:A10, you could enter the following long formula: =A1+A2+A3+A4+A5+A6+A7+A8+A9+A10 Or, you could use the SUM function to accomplish the same thing: =SUM(A1:A10)
  11. 11. Entering Functions with AutoSum  The AutoSum button quickly inserts Excel functions that summarize all the values in a column or row using a single statistic  Sum of the values in the column or row  Average value in the column or row  Total count of numeric values in the column or row  Minimum value in the column or row  Maximum value in the column or row
  12. 12. Hands on – Entering totals in Exercomp
  13. 13. Absolute References – F4
  14. 14. Predicting a Sales Increase
  15. 15. Mixed Reference
  16. 16. Function Syntax – get help!
  17. 17. Insert Function
  18. 18. Insert Function
  19. 19. VLookup
  20. 20. Vlookup – What value to lookup
  21. 21. Vlookup – Selecting the table
  22. 22. Vlookup – Selecting the Column
  23. 23. Result
  24. 24. Hlookup
  25. 25. Working with Logical Functions  A logical function is a function that works with values that are either true or false  The IF function is a logical function that returns one value if the statement is true and returns a different value if the statement is false  IF(logical_test, value_if_true, [value_if_false])
  26. 26. Working with Logical Functions  A comparison operator is a symbol that indicates the relationship between two values
  27. 27. Working with Logical Functions  =IF(A1="YES", "DONE", "RESTART")  =IF(A1="MAXIMUM", MAX(B1:B10), MIN(B1:B10))  =IF(D33>0, $K$10, 0)
