  1. I fancy EXCEL & where ever possible I try to programe it. PLEASE help me with all the functions & their examples. Have done it for Numerology, Family genealogy, now Family trust fund am stuck with the “AND” function of using it. Please help me.83 years age. NO Website, wish I can develop one.

  2. This is very useful, but I often don’t have access to the internet when I am working in Excel. Could you make this information in a PDF file, so that it would be accessible offline?

  3. Please help. I have a column with a title.
    If it has been checked how to I copy the title to another cell?

  4. =search(“9″,”99 9000”) = result is 1
    How about another “9” position? What is formula?

  5. Sir, 2nd Sept.2019.

    I want to learn macro VBA step by step please help me.. you are doing really great job

  19. Thank you so much Puneet Gogia and nice to see the whole functions list in online,it is helpful to me.I’m really appreciate to you… i want to learn VBA pls need you guideline (confusion in coding)

  20. Hi, Dear Punit,

    I am very thankful to you as you have start this learning portal for all. In my office people are jealous they don’t give me chance to learn excel and no one guide me how to use excel smartly even though many of them are working smartly in excel.

  21. (Maraming salamat po sayo Puneet..) Thank you so much Puneet. It’s a great help for me to learn more from you

  22. It will be better if you put more information about Excel macros. Thank you for your contributions in order to make people’s working lives easier. Keep up the good work.

  23. my self deepak,
    thanks for this, good job
    kindly provide advance vba/excle programes

    • Sir it was done manually just to let you explain my actual need, please suggest function, if you can help in this regard.

  24. Thanks a lot for providing a helpful resources. You did a excellent job. Thanks again…

  25. Are these available in a PDF or Word File? This is a good reference, but it’s hard to remember to come back here for the information. Having them as something you can download would be really helpful.

  26. Thank you for the valuable information…I would like to know one specific thing.
    Once we use the transpose, only values are copied. If i want to retain the values with formula in transpose function, is it possible. This is very important to keep scientific way to prove that the transpose operation done is correct. In data analytics big excel sheets are handled and a small mistake can lead to big problems .. Please advise me ..

  27. with transpose function can we reverse the data set; like AAA, BBB, CCC transpose to CCC,BBB,AAA. Thanks

  28. Hi Puneet I think it is great if you combine these formulas in one store in PDF it is really awesome

  29. HI, is there any way to work out how long there is between 2 times? ie. 09:42 and 10:01 (that is, I want it to show 19 minutes)

  30. SUBTOTAL – which I find is a powerful function, but often overlooked – particularly with the different function numbers that formula uses.

  31. Punnet thanks, May I suggest this, an average subscriber fairly uses excel and functions but in isolation. Every one knows match, offset etc what most need is the combination of these functions to generate more potent practical problem solving forces is the next step I will like you to do after these functions in isolation.

  32. I would love others to learn these functions “Indirect, Offset, Match, Index, Vlookup, Mid, Find, Replace, Substitute, Sumif, Sumifs, SumProduct mainly and of course array functions as well.

  33. I would really like to have a better understanding of the Indirect with Row and/or Columns function. Could we include these please.

  34. Hi Puneet, I saw someone at work using both the INDEX and MATCH functions. I see that someone has already requested MATCH so if possible, I would like to see INDEX added to the list. Thank you!

  35. Hello again, Puneet (and congratulations on your 1st 1,000 subscribers)! I would like to see the IFERROR function covered. I am just learning about it, so all lessons are greatly appreciated. Thank you for asking!

  36. i would like to Get a good description of the match function and/or the choose function. Thanks Torstein (sejohnse@yahoo.no)
