One of the most common tasks in Excel is the process of looking up specific values within a data set.
In a simple database, this process would be completed by writing a “query” for a specified “table.” For Excel, you complete this task by using a “formula,” with specific syntax rules, and reference a “data range.” If your intent is to someday become an Excel power user, you will need a solid understanding of all the lookup formulas available to you.
When this option is set to automatic, Excel recalculates the spreadsheet’s formulas whenever you change a cell value.
