## 7 Ways to Sum in ExcelThe first Excel calculation that most people try is adding two or more numbers with the SUM function. After you have that skill mastered, you're ready to discover some of the other ways you can add things up in Excel. For a quick overview of 7 different ways to sum numbers with Excel functions, you can watch this 9-minute video. There are written steps and more videos on the How to Sum in Excel page, along with sample files to download for Excel skills practice.. |

## 7 Ways to Count in ExcelAnother key calculation in Excel is counting things. For example, do you need to count numbers only, or do you want to count any type of data? How can you count things based on one or more criteria? To see a quick overview of 7 ways to get a total count of cells in Excel, watch this short video. There are written steps and more videos on the How to Count in Excel page, along with sample files to download for Excel skills practice. |

## Excel Lookup FunctionsWhen you have to do a lookup in Excel, such as finding the price for a product, which is the best lookup function to use in Microsoft Excel? If you're not sure, head to the Excel Lookup Functions Comparison page, to see an overview, and get advice. There are notes on these functions: XLOOKUP, VLOOKUP, HLOOKUP, LOOKUP, INDEX, MATCH, and OFFSET For example, this video shows how to make a VLOOKUP formula that finds a product price. The written steps are on the Excel VLOOKUP Examples page, along with other videos, examples, and Excel files to download. |

On my Contextures Blog, in January 2011, I posted tutorials for 30 functions in 30 days, and it was a fun experience! The lessons are still useful, because the functions haven't changed much (or at all!) since then.

All 30 functions are in the Text, Information, and Lookup categories, and the list included some of my favourite Excel functions, like:
