Excel Lesson 13 Cable / MorrisonMicrosoft Office 2010 Advanced Introduction Excel offers powerful functions to count, sum, and locate specific information. – COUNT function – COUNTA function – COUNTBLANK function – Subtotal function – SUMIF function – VLOOKUP function – HLOOKUP function 5

Excel Lesson 13 Cable / MorrisonMicrosoft Office 2010 Advanced Using COUNTA versus COUNT To find the total number of cells that have numeric data, use the COUNT function. 6 COUNT function counts numeric data

Excel Lesson 13 Cable / MorrisonMicrosoft Office 2010 Advanced Using COUNTA versus COUNT (continued) To count cells with text, use the COUNTA function. The COUNTA function counts cells if they contain text or a combination of text and numbers. 7 COUNTA function counts cells with text

Excel Lesson 13 Cable / MorrisonMicrosoft Office 2010 Advanced Using COUNTBLANK The COUNTBLANK function counts the number of cells that do not have any numbers or text entered in them. You may want to count blank cells to see how many cells do not contain data. 8

Excel Lesson 13 Cable / MorrisonMicrosoft Office 2010 Advanced Using COUNTBLANK (continued) COUNTBLANK function counts cells without data 9

Excel Lesson 13 Cable / MorrisonMicrosoft Office 2010 Advanced Counting Filtered Cells Using the Subtotal Function The Subtotal function can be used to count, sum, or average filtered data. The Subtotal function is =SUBTOTAL (function number, data range). – The function number is a number that represents a calculation. 10

Excel Lesson 13 Cable / MorrisonMicrosoft Office 2010 Advanced Creating Named Ranges You can give a range a meaningful name. Named ranges can be used in functions. – Especially helpful if you need to use a range in several functions In a range name, use an underscore (_), rather than a space, to separate words. – Excel does not accept spaces in named ranges. 12

Excel Lesson 13 Cable / MorrisonMicrosoft Office 2010 Advanced Using the SUMIF Function The SUMIF function will only total data that meets a certain condition. A condition is a requirement that needs to be met. Criteria are the conditions you are searching for in a data range. The SUMIF function is =SUMIF(range,criteria,sum_range). 16

Excel Lesson 13 Cable / MorrisonMicrosoft Office 2010 Advanced Creating a VLOOKUP Function LOOKUP functions allow you to find data that already exists. A lookup table is the range of data you create in either a vertical or horizontal format, which Excel will use to match against the criteria. The VLOOKUP function is used when the lookup table is listed vertically in columns. 18
