Looking up data in Excel 2013 is a fun thing. Yet many students find it difficult to search for data in Excel due to arcane explanations provided in help files and tutorials.
"Looking up", simply means to search a particular value from a spreadsheet or workbook against a particular value that we know before hand. It can be likened to looking up a word in a dictionary, or a record in a database.
Excel makes it easy to search for values, both in rows and columns. While there are advanced functions also that enable Excel users to search for data "database-style", the HLookup and VLookup functions are their simpler-yet-powerful siblings.
