This is the
class in our Excel Expert Series. It picks up where
Expert Level 2
left off. The focus of this course is working with logic
functions in Excel. Topics covered include:
Understanding logic (boolean) values
- True, False, And, Or, Not
- Using the IF function to make decisions
- Nested IF functions for multiple options
- Calculating sales tax IF customer is in-state
- Assigning a pass/fail grade to a student
- Giving a student a letter grade (A-F)
- Time sheet calculations that cross midnight
- Is a given cell blank, text, number, etc.

Recorded with Microsoft
Excel 2010. Valid for 2007 to 2021.
Expert Level 2
course is for the expert user who
has good experience with Microsoft Excel or has completed the five
courses in our
Beginner Series plus Expert Level 1
and 2 classes. This course will teach you how to work with
logic functions in Excel.
begin by learning about logical (boolean) values in Excel. You
will learn about TRUE and FALSE and the various core logic
functions, such as And, Or, and Not. You'll see how to determine whether
or not an invoice is paid, whether a customer should get a collection
letter, whether an order should be shipped, and whether a charge should
be added to a credit card batch. There will be a lot of examples in this
class, since understanding these functions is critical for making your
Excel spreadsheets smart.
Next, you will learn about one of the
most powerful functions in Excel: the IF function. Knowing how to
use IF properly will open up a whole new world for your spreadsheets.
You'll be able to make decisions with your data and provide different
results based on conditions. We'll learn how basic "If/Then"
reasoning works in Excel. You'll see, for example, how to charge
sales tax for a customer IF they reside in your state. You'll
see how you can take a student's average and give them a Pass or Fail
Next you'll learn how to nest multiple
IF functions together to select from multiple options. We will
assign a letter grade to each of our students (A-F). You'll learn
how to create time sheet calculations that cross over midnight
(difficult to do without IF). You will also learn how to calculate
regular and overtime pay for employees.
You will learn a bunch of different
functions to determine the contents of a cell. Is the cell blank?
Does it contain a number or text? Is there an error there? These
functions include IsBlank, IsError, IsText, IsEven, IsOdd, IsLogical,
IsNumber, IsText, IsNonText, IfError, and more. You can use the
IsBlank function, for example, to determine whether or not to use
"Mr.", "Mrs.", or "Mr. & Mrs." for a mailing list, depending on which
names you have (husband, wife, or both).
Again, this is the perfect class
for anyone who wants to learn how to work effectively with logic
functions including the IF function in Microsoft Excel.
Mastering the IF function is one of the most important things you
can do while learning Excel. Of
course, if you have any questions about whether or not this class is
