Learn Excel. Our experts write step-by-step guides on functions, create spreadsheet templates, and offer guidance on data visualizations.
Here, you’ll find our most recent and most popular guides to Microsoft Excel. Looking for something specific? Use our search bar to find exactly what you’re looking for.
We love to break down Excel formulas. Whether you use Mac or PC, our guides always include a syntactical breakdown. That means you’ll see what a formula looks like, its arguments, and whether there’s anything optional to include.
Here’s an example of an Excel function from our IF CONTAINS guide:
=IF(test, if-true, if-false)
Our guide then breaks down each argument to show what it means. We also include screenshots and real-world examples.
Excel Spreadsheet Templates
Our team regularly creates spreadsheet templates for Google Sheets. Many of these double as Excel workbooks. Just make a copy of our sheet, click File > Download, and choose the Excel option.
That means you’ll be able to work from one of our financial analysis templates (like budget templates) without having to start from scratch.
Data Visualization and Formatting
Of course, we also help with Excel’s robust formatting tools. That means we help you explore chart makers, modify existing Excel files, and hide or unhide data in your worksheet. Here are a few of our most popular formatting guides:
- How to Remove Dashes
- Creating Excel Dashboards
- Edit Table Formatting
- How to Swap Cells
- How to Find Duplicates
