    Hi Ben. Did a search for online Excel, because I needed a refresher on a few things. Plus a family member is starting Excel with no prior knowledge. Thank you for paying it forward. Have a Happy and Safe New Year.

    I just came here 4 days ago to learn some excel basics; concatenate and vlookups. Turns out I simply got fascinated by your tutorials that I couldn’t stop learning.Now I’m really excited to learn so much more here, because It is completaly free! Thank you SO MUCH for sharing this with us Ben!

  4. Samantha Thomas says:

    Hi Ben, how do the excel lessons work? Can students access in their own time and which organisation do you belong to?

    • cobainbc15 says:

      Responded via email, but the important part in case anyone here reads the comments:

      All of the Excel lessons in the course are available online for free without any sign up requirements. They can be accessed on their own time, and their progress is not tracked in any way. I’m not apart of any organization, made the website and tutorials myself. Just a one-man team 🙂

      • Diana says:

        This is so great !!! and just what I was looking for. I just got a new Mac computer and I decided to improve my excel skills, this is going to be so helpful, I just need to get a proper office pack because the one I have for now is open office and it won’t allow me to work on the exercises myself. Once I get that ill be all set.

        Thank you so much for such a great help , I’m very excited to learn more!


  5. Roshan Hegde says:

    This is amazing work, even more awesome is the fact that its free and not even a sign-up required. Thank you so much Ben

    Your skills are beyond comprehension…. Can someone please help me with a formula for computing necessary skills and returning a yes or no value? I have a list of employees with industry certifications and I want to determine who is expert level or not. If they have all certifications they are expert, if not, then no. The problem is that the list contains their certification expiration dates, and if they don’t have the cert, the cell is empty…. Any thoughts?

    Ex. Bill doesn’t have all the certs
    Cert 1 Cert 2 Cert 3
    John 12/01/2020 12/01/2020 12/01/2020
    Bill 12/01/2020
    Steve 12/01/2020 12/01/2020 12/01/2020

    I can’t thank you enough for your kind, patient and comprehensive delivery while teaching this course! After watching your first video there’s no comparison to the classes I’ve taken in the past at my local community college and library, which only left me more confused and frustrated. FINALLY success is at the end of my rainbow, I couldn’t be more excited!!!!! You have my sincere thanks and appreciation for your gifts.

  11. Noorie Rao says:

    Hi Ben, thanks a lot for all these great tutorials.
    – If I may ask for your help, I need an assistance with the below subject:
    I am forming a table shows that which medicine is indicated for which illness.
    The table starts from ”row 1 to row 10″ e.g. But between these rows, there could be some empty cells. For example row 4 and row 7 is empty. (These are empty because may be filled later according to future storage of the infirmary)
    I’d like to enumerate the medical items in the table on a coloumn using by number autofill technic or by another method. But I also want to ingore empty cells in the row and skip these ones. So, when i autofill, in a coloumn it should be like 1 2 3 – 4 5 – 6 7 8 (It should skip the empty cells and continue autofilling for the next row)
    Thanks for you help..

    Hi Ben, The tutorial videos and the workbook are so informative. In fact, I have never come across such a comprehensive training offered by anyone, especially free of charge. I wish to contribute to this cause as you are helping us in many ways than one. Thanks for being such a blessing, and I have learnt more than the internal training that our company offers. Keep it up !!!

  27. Mouad says:

    Firstly thank you so much for all your efforts to make Excel so easy and interesting.
    I have a question and would appreciate if you have the answer, is there a feature, function in the excel where numbers and amounts could be automatically changed in to alphabets?

    I knew that this is available in the ASAP version of 97 – 2003 office, but in English only and not a formula, in the excel we are using there is some thing but writing only one Asian language, do you know if there is any thing for Arabic?

    Thanks and Regards

  32. Jo says:

    Amazing! I just started a new role in my long time job doing reception/admin work. I thought excel would be easy because I’m generally good with computers and game in all my free time. Boy was I wrong, I didn’t even know where to begin with half of the things they ask me to do. Thankfully I found this, now I feel confident that I will do fine. Thank you so much! 🙂

  33. C says:

    hi, thanks for your videos, really enjoying them. may i suggest you put the dates on when lessons were posted? i think it would help keep track since the lesson guide and lesson plan pages are categorized differently.

  36. susan trevethan says:

    I need to write a formula that will take deposits, listed in cell G rows 1-300 and subtract withdrawls listed in lets say cell D rows 1-300 and keep a running total in say cell H1.
    I thought I had it right with =SUM(G1:G300)-D1:D300 writing the formula for cell H1 but it doesn’t work. Can you help me figure out what I am doing wrong I am using Excel 2010
    Thank you…

    • Hi Susan,

      The problem is that you should have the SUM formula around both ranges, like so:


      That should work. Let me know if you need any additional help!



  37. Tim Bertrand says:

    Ben, first of all I have gone through all of your trainings except the VBA ones (not ready for them yet), and they are all wonderful. I have questions for you about naming ranges or cells. I sheet that I cut information into weekly and the length is different each week. In column A it will always have Monday-Sunday with a different amount of blanks in between each day, like Monday will always be in A1, but Tuesday may be in A50 or A66 or any other cell in column A. Is there a way of naming the cell that Tuesday will be in Tuesday even though it moves?

  38. Tina says:

    Super job! The videos have been extremely easy to follow and learn from. I was absolutely surprised at how quickly I was able to pick up and go in excel once I began the tutorials. My skills with excel have been basic up until now. Hesitant at first, with online learning, once I began watching the videos, I became immediately engaged and ready for the next tutorial.
    Thank you for all the time and effort you have put into the creation of this sight, the videos, workbook, etc.
    You have allowed me the opportunity to ‘excel’ at my work in leaps and bounds!

  39. Lee says:

    Love it! Great work! You are truly a gifted teacher. I feel like an expert now! Now that I’ve completed most of the videos, I’m curious what you are going to tackle next!

    • Hey Lee,

      So glad that you found the site/tutorials to be useful!

      Getting positive feedback is what makes it all worth it.

      My laptop crashed a couple weeks ago so I’m in the process of getting it up and running but I should be posting two new videos this month.

      Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions or suggestions.



  40. Fareena says:

    Hey Ben,

    Great job! That’s very useful!!

    Could you share with us what’s the tecnology you use to record the videos??

    Thanks and regards,

  43. Vash says:

    Dear Ben,

    This is an amazing course and is very helpful. I would like to congratualte you for the same.
    I also wanted to know if there is anyway we could acquire a certificate stating that we have completed a course in Excel.

    Thank you.

    • Hey Vash,

      So glad that you found the site/tutorials to be useful!

      Currently there is no certificate related to the course that I can provide. In the future I may have multiple choice quizzes/tests that can be completed after the videos to prove that the information was understood. As it currently stands, I don’t have any way of knowing whether someone has completed the course.



  44. Wendy Wong says:

    Thank you very much for the videos and workbook! I am from Singapore and would like to self study Excel and progress from a know-the-basics to Advanced user. Then I want to try to sit for Microsoft Certifiied Exam for Excel. May I know how to learn more from you to the advanced stage?

    Oops I have sent you an email but should have posted here! I recently bluffed a job interview (chancing both arms) and by some freak of nature got the job… which requires Excel skills I did not even nearly have, and then I watched your videos! Thank you Ben, you’ve probably saved my career 🙂

  52. Linda says:

    You are wonderful! Thank you so much for these lessons. Our server was down today, so I decided to see if I could find some Excel training. I know Excel and have some advanced knowledge, but I’ve been looking for a way to learn more. One of the things I’ve wanted to start using more are Pivot Tables – was glad to see a lesson on those. You have just streamlined a lot of what I’m working on. Keep giving us more tips and tricks!

  53. Joyce says:

    This is indeed a very useful website to help people learn different excel functions. Thanks for offering us all of these!

  54. Adam says:

    I just wanted to say that I appreciate all of your hard work with this project. This is very helpful and is much more accessible and faster paced than the training my company provides. I will recommend your course to anyone interested in learning excel.

  55. Matt says:

    This is so useful thank you for doing this. I am pretty good with excel but I am self taught so there are obviously things that I missed. Again thank you. Really good stuff.
