Excel Exposure – Learn Excel Online

Free Online Excel Training Course!

This free online Excel class was created with the goal of helping you learn Microsoft Excel. In these video tutorials I teach how to use Microsoft Excel 2010 specifically, but most of the information is applicable to previous versions as well.

Update 11-3-2017:  The winner for the Logitech Keyboard Giveaway was selected today, and informed via email.  Thanks to everyone who entered and all the kind words!

I’d recommend checking out the Lesson Guide which lists the lessons in the ideal order for viewing, especially if you plan on going through the course start to finish.

These lessons are intended for everyone to use, so while I would like to add more jokes and make it a little more fun, I have to make the lessons accessible to non-native English speakers.  Feel free to reach out to me with questions or suggestions via the contact page!

Before watching the videos, make sure to download the Master Workbook to follow along!

    What about the planned lessons? When will they be out?

    • cobainbc15 says:

      Unfortunately, there’s no current planned timeline.

      I hope to get back into creating lessons soon, but my full-time job makes it a bit harder to find free time.

  2. mathew says:

    This is a very nice resource – I noted no apparent, section on power query/get & transform. This is a very valuable tool, and does make my life with data and MI/BI so much easier

    • mathew says:

      I have since found power query within the power pivot section; but given the importance of power query, it might be wise to have a whole section on this)

  3. mo jo says:

    Great job Ben! This is a great tutorial.
    Suggestion: Once I watched all (most) of your tutorials I would have loved a number of tasks that put into practice what I have learnt (with suggested solutions). Whilst I can do this myself I think it more beneficial if put together by someone who knows Excel + one would learn from your solutions.

    • You right click on the cell and click format cell. Next on the numbers tab, select custom. In the box that says general, remove that text, and insert the following in its place: ###,###,###,###,###.#######.

      This should give you the formatting you are looking for.

          What I am getting that you want to calculate remaining balance. For have to apply formula–
          Total amount- 5000
          Expence- 940
          What is total remaining balance ??
          Formula is…
          Put = in balance cell then put bracket start ( and drage left arrow to total amount put minus – then right arrow to expence cell then bracket close ) and tab. Will automatically show remaining amount.

  197. Asad says:


    I’ve an issue.

    I have a below data file and want to use Vlookup. But the data I want to fetch is conditional.

    Company City Charges CreditCustomer Contracted
    Ace Mumbai Prepaid No Yes
    Pace Delhi Collect Yes Yes
    Race Chennai Prepaid No No
    Ace Delhi Prepaid No Yes

    With regards to the above table we have n number of companies in varioud cities across the world and hence not sure how to apply a conditional Vlook up.

    From the above table, I would want to know if the company Ace located in Delhi is contracted with us. Kindly note that this customer has its branches connected with us throughout the world.

    Could you please suggest me some idea, would really be a big help!

    Thank you!

    • Hey Asad,

      I’ve created a working copy of the situation you mentioned. I did it using a COUNTIFS formula (which may or may not have been the most efficient choice, but it’s late and I’m heading to bed soon). Here’s the file: http://excelexposure.files.wordpress.com/2013/05/asad-lookup-help.xlsx

      You could also accomplish this by using a ‘helper column’ in column A which could combine the company/city into one name using a formula like =B1&C1 which would come up as AceMumbai, and then you could do a vlookup on AceMumbai to see if it’s contracted.

      Either way works, but I hope that helps.

    I would like enroll as well

    • Hey Tyesh,

      Sorry but I responded to Araceli below by email, but I’ll respond here in case others are wondering:

      You actually aren’t required to ‘enroll’ in order to see any of the videos/training material on the website. All of the lessons are listed in the homepage as well as the Lesson Guide (which groups them in order by difficulty).

      If you’d like to be listed on the student roster at University of Reddit, you can go to my course page and sign up for the course (but again, this is not required, although is good for communications).

      Try clicking Getting Started at the top if you’re still unsure about the course format.

      Hope that helps.

      Assuming your variable that you’re trying to round is in A1, you’d use the following formula:

  229. Beckham says:

    I’ve got one for you. I know that there is a way to have Excel pull information from a database on the internet and to have excel update that information whenever you open the sheet, but what if you want it to pull from weekly reports? Is there a way to have Excel automatically recognize that there is a new document to pull information from and to have that information placed in a new sheet automatically?

    Hi, got a question. How can I copy data from one worksheet to another worksheet without using a copy/paste? using only a formula..

    • You can refer directly to the sheet. For example if Sheet1 has all the information you want, on sheet2 in cell A1 you can put


      And it will show the value that’s there, you could drag this down and across and it would show you what’s in those cells. (Now problems can come about when you start changing sheet1 depending on how it’s setup).

      You can also use INDIRECT() and/or OFFSET() functions to make sure it’s always pointing to cell A1.

      Hope that helps. Feel free to email me if you have further questions..

  266. John says:

    how does one write an “IF Function” in excel for a range…for example, if CELL C25 was equal to or less than 1 and equal to or greater than -1, the result would be 200%. how would the IF equation be written? I tried IF(c25=-1,200%,0%)

    • The IF statement you wrote would only work if it was equal to -1. For what you want, I think this formula should work just fine:

      =IF(AND(C25>=-1, C25<=1),200%,0%)

      That formula checks to see if C25 is greater than or equal to -1 AND whether C25 is less than or equal to 1 (using the AND() function).

      Hope that helps!
