This course is part 6 of a 9-part series on Excel Formulas & Functions: from basic to advanced.

Text functions are remarkably versatile tools for manipulating and analyzing text fields in Excel. In this section we’ll review basic UPPER, LOWER, PROPER and TRIM functions, practice joining strings together with CONCATENATE, and combine text parsing functions like LEFT, MID, and RIGHT with tools like SEARCH, FIND and SUBSTITUTE to create incredibly powerful and dynamic formulas for text analysis.

About the Excel Formulas & Functions Series:

In this series, you will develop tools to transform Excel from a basic spreadsheet program into a dynamic and powerful analytics tool. Courses cover 75+ formulas, and feature hands-on, contextual demos and practice exercises designed to help you not only memorize formula syntax, but to think like Excel.

You'll learn how to write complex, powerful functions from scratch, allowing you to:

• Build dynamic tools & dashboards to filter, display and analyze your data
• Join datasets from multiple sources in seconds with LOOKUP, INDEX & MATCH functions
• Pull real-time data from APIs directly into Excel using WEBSERVICE & FILTERXML
• Manipulate dates, times, text, and arrays with ease
• Automate tedious and time-consuming analytics tasks (no VBA required!)
• And much more

If you're looking for the ONE series covering all of the advanced formulas and functions that you need to become an absolute Excel rock star, you've found it!
