DSD: VLookup in Excel - workshop
Course Description:
The VLookup function in Excel is able to look for a value in a table or range and retrieve some corresponding data. For example, you can use a VLookup formula to look for a particular module code in a table and extract some further information about it, such as how many students are enrolled or the name of the tutor. In this introductory level session we will practice several examples of VLookup and take a brief look at HLookup too.

IMPORTANT: Please ensure you are using Desktop@UCL or the UCL VPN when booking because you need to be on the UCL network to use the system.

Once you have enrolled, you will need to click on the play button under 'My current enrolments' in My Learning to join at the time of the live session.
