Microsoft Excel can be daunting to learn with over hundreds of excel functions and possibly millions of applications. We have tried to classify the various excel functions into different topics so it becomes easier to:

  • search and find the function you are looking for; and
  • learn all the relevant functions in the area you are trying to master (say statistics or date related functions)

The various categories we have currently segmented the functions into are:

  • Date & time functions
  • Database functions
  • Financial functions
  • Lookup and reference functions
  • Information functions
  • Math and trigonometry functions
  • Logical functions
  • Engineering functions
  • Statistical functions
  • External and web functions
  • Text functions

You will see the different categories listed at the the bottom of the embedded file. Click on the one that interests you and enjoy learning excel.
