Mastering Excel Array Formulas
Command The Power of the 'Array Formula' in
Array Formulas are a powerful tool in Excel. An Array Formula works
with a series of Data Values instead of a single Value. Excel Array
Formulas are mysterious, even to people who use Excel 40 hours a
week. Start with the secret keystroke that must be used to finish an
Array Formula: Ctrl+Shift+Enter. Then, you have to know which
functions will work with Arrays and which will not. Once you get a
grasp on Array Formulas, you will find they solve problems that
regular Excel Formulas can not solve, or would require hundreds of
thousands of regular Formulas.
Although elusive, Array Formulas can be used to solve everyday Excel
problems. If you need to figure out how many times your birthday
fell on a Friday, an Array Formula can solve that. If you need to
return a unique list of sales reps from a Database, an Array Formula
can solve that.
How does this book approach Array Formulas?
This book systematically lists the aspects, elements and guidelines
for array formulas. Array formulas can be insanely difficult. But
there are times when an array formula is the only way to accomplish
a task. Array formulas can beat filtering, sorting and pivot tables
because array formulas will automatically update when the input
Why should you read this book:
You love Excel magic and wizardry. Your idea of fun is making Excel
do the impossible with a formula.
You know how to create formulas and want to take the next leap in
Excel, into the upper echelon of creating advanced formulas.
You cringe when a co-worker sends a workbook with formulas wrapped
in curly braces.
You have heard about array formulas and know that in some
situations, they are the most efficient solution, but you have no
idea how to create them.
You use array formulas and are aware of some of the drawbacks they
present (such as slow formula calculation time), and you would like
to learn how to create more efficient array formulas.

*A Note About This Product:
The above BOOK, "Ctrl+Shift+Enter", by Mike "ExcelIsFun" Girvin,
Does Not follow along the same
format as the
DVD of the same title. This BOOK is a stand-alone
product with it's own format.
"The DVD 'Ctrl+Shift+Enter: Mastering Excel
Array Formulas' is a separate product from this book. The two products
cover the same broad topics related to creating efficient array
formulas. However, the video has kinetic visuals of how array formulas
work and less detail than the book. The book has a more complete story
and systematic presentation of array formulas. If you really want to
master array formulas, study both the book and the DVD."
DVD of the same title ["Control+Shift+Enter", by Mike
Girvin] does NOT contain this book as part of the
DVD Content as the formats between the two
products differ greatly.
