I have several columns of data related to school scheduling. One of the columns has course numbers. I would like to change these course numbers into data such as teacher's name, subject taught, and period the subject is taught. I have a list of course numbers and what they represent. Is there a way to create a reference table for this information and create a formula to change these course numbers into the information I want?

You could use Excel's VLOOKUP worksheet funtion to extract info from your lookup table.
