VLOOKUP & HLOOKUP in Excel Tutorial

Easy video tutorial showing you step by step how to Vlookup and Hlookup in Microsoft Excel. As full disclosure, I work at Microsoft.

The VLOOKUP function performs a vertical lookup by searching for a value in the first column of a table and returning the value in the same row in the index_number position. The VLOOKUP function is a built-in function in Excel that is categorized as a Lookup/Reference Function.

The HLOOKUP function searches for a value in the top row of a table or an array of values, and then returns a value in the same column from a row you specify in the table or array. Use HLOOKUP when your comparison values are located in a row across the top of a table of data, and you want to look down a specified number of rows. Use VLOOKUP when your comparison values are located in a column to the left of the data you want to find.

The H in HLOOKUP stands for “Horizontal.”

    Hi Kevin. Thanks for this video. Do you have a video on how to create a template to manage staff availability across multiple work sites? So, I have to manage supervisors availability on 5 different work sites and need to manage capacity across these sites, show when each is on site, on annual leave and in training. The template also needs to account for weekends and public holidays. Any pointers?
