**INDEX**/

**MATCH can**work with vertical and

After all, the V in VLOOKUP stands for vertical. VLOOKUP **can** only go through data that is vertical, while **INDEX**/**MATCH can** go through data vertically as well **horizontally**.

### Why does my index match not work?

If you believe that the data is present in the spreadsheet, but

**MATCH**is unable to locate it, it may be because: The cell has unexpected characters or hidden spaces. The cell may**not**be formatted as a correct data type. For example, the cell has numerical values, but it may be formatted as Text.### Why is index and match better than Vlookup?

The greatest benefit of using

**INDEX MATCH**over**VLOOKUP**is the fact that, with**INDEX MATCH**, you can insert columns in your table array without distorting your lookup results. With**VLOOKUP**, any inserted or deleted column that displaces your return values will change the results of your formulas.### What is the difference between Vlookup and index match?

The main

**difference between VLOOKUP and INDEX MATCH**is in column reference.**VLOOKUP**requires a static column reference whereas**INDEX MATCH**requires a dynamic column reference.**INDEX MATCH**allows you to click to choose which column you want to pull the value from. This leads to fewer errors.### Why is Vlookup bad?

It can not lookup and return a value which is to the left of the lookup value. It works only with data which is arranged vertically.

**VLOOKUP**would give a**wrong**result if you add/delete a new column in your data (as the column number value now refers to the**wrong**column).### What is the index formula in Excel?

The

**INDEX function**returns a value or the reference to a value from within a table or range. There are two ways to use the**INDEX function**: If you want to return the value of a specified cell or array of cells, see Array form. If you want to return a reference to specified cells, see Reference form.### Which formula is not equivalent to all of the other?

In Excel, <> means

**not equal**to. The <> operator in Excel checks if two values are**not equal to each other**.### What is the use of not formula?

The

**NOT function**is an Excel Logical**function**. The**function**helps check if one value is**not**equal to another. If we give TRUE, it will return FALSE and when given FALSE, it will return TRUE. So, basically, it will always return a reverse logical value.### Which of formula contains an absolute cell reference?

An absolute reference is designated in a formula by the addition of a dollar sign ($) before the column and row. If it precedes the column or row (but not both), it’s known as a mixed reference. You will use the

**relative**(A2) and absolute ($A$2) formats in most formulas.### Which formula correctly counts the number of numeric values?

Use the COUNT function in a formula to count the number of numeric values in a

**range**. In the above**example**, A2, A3, and A6 are the only cells that contains numeric values in the**range**, hence the output is 3. Note: A7 is a time value, but it contains text (a.m.), hence COUNT does not consider it a numerical value.### Which formula correctly counts the number of numeric values in both B4?

To count the cells with numeric data, we use the formula COUNT(B4:B16). The COUNT

**function**is fully programmed. It counts the number of cells in a range that contain numbers and returns the result as shown above.### What does this formula do?

This

**formula**allows the user to select the Rep, Month and Count level and the**formula**returns the number of entries for the Rep in the selected month that are greater than or equal to the Level.### Which function finds the largest number in a range?

Example

A | |
---|---|

Formula | Description (Result) |

=MIN(A2:A7) |
Smallest number in the range (0) |

=MAX(A2:A7) | Largest number in the range (27) |

=SMALL(A2:A7, 2) | Second smallest number in the range (4) |

### Which function is used to count the number of numeric values in a range?

Answer. Explanation: The Excel count function returns the count of values that are numbers, generally

**cells**that contain numbers. Values can be supplied as constants,**cell references**, or ranges.### How do you find the largest number in an array?

**Java program to**

**find the largest number in an array**- Compare the first two elements of the
**array**. - If the first element is greater than the second swap them.
- Then, compare 2nd and 3rd elements if the second element is greater than the 3rd swap them.
- Repeat this till the end of the
**array**.
