Microsoft Excel – Formulas and Functions (Beginner to Advance)

Categories: MS Excel

About Course

This course is all about using formulas & functions to transform basic Excel worksheets into dynamic and powerful analytics tools.

We’ll cover 75+ core functions, using hands-on demos designed to showcase why they are important and how they can be applied in a variety of ways. This isn’t about memorizing syntax; it’s about learning how to THINK like Excel.

It’s time to show Excel who’s boss. Whether you’re starting from square one or aspiring to become an absolute Excel power user, you’ve come to the right place.

This course will give you a deep understanding of the advanced Excel formulas and functions that transform Excel from a basic spreadsheet program into a dynamic and powerful analytics tool.

While most Excel courses focus on simply what each formula does, I teach through hands-on, contextual examples designed to showcase why these formulas are awesome and how they can be applied in a number of ways. I will not train you to regurgitate functions and formula syntax; I will teach you how to THINK like Excel.


By the end of the course you’ll be writing robust, elegant formulas from scratch, allowing you to:

  • Easily build dynamic tools & Excel dashboards to filter, display and analyze your data
  • Create your own formula-based Excel formatting rules
  • Join datasets from multiple sources with LOOKUP, INDEX & MATCH functions
  • Manipulate dates, times, text, and arrays
  • Automate tedious and time-consuming tasks using cell formulas and functions in Excel (no VBA required!)
  • Pull real-time data from APIs directly into Excel (weather, stock quotes, directions, etc.)


We’ll dive into a broad range of Excel formulas & functions, including:

  • Lookup/Reference functions
  • Statistical functions
  • Formula-based formatting
  • Date & Time functions
  • Logical operators
  • Dynamic Array formulas
  • Text functions
  • Web scraping with WEBSERVICE & FILTERXML


I have a genuine passion for Excel that most people reserve for things like kittens, ice cream, and significant others. The only thing I love more than learning Excel is teaching it, and as the founder of Maven Analytics, I’ve been lucky enough to teach Excel to 500,000+ students across 180+ countries. My teaching style is conversational, authentic, and to the point, and I will always communicate complex concepts in a framework that is clear and easy to comprehend.

As a full-time analytics consultant and Excel instructor, I cut my teeth using Excel to solve real-world business problems and develop award-winning analytics & data visualization tools for Fortune 500 companies. If you care about creds, I’m a card-carrying MOS Certified Excel Expert and my work has been featured by Microsoft and the New York Times. Ok so I don’t actually carry the card, but you get the idea.

If you’re looking for the ONE course with all of the advanced Excel formulas and functions that you need to know to become an absolute Excel ninja, you’ve found it.
