Learn complex array formulas in excel

You’ll learn 3 of them in this video!

Learn Excel Array formulas by going through the example

While I solve this problem, I also explain how array formulas work in Excel. They can be difficult to get the hang of. This video shows you how I approach complex problems. I hope I managed to explain it in simple terms.

You’ll learn a simple method to create complex formulas.

Before watching the video, try solving it yourself. Here is the deal:

You need to find a formula that solves the below problem:

Excel Array problem overview

The tricky part is this:

If B, D or R win a price, the workshop (i.e. that row) counts as 1. This means if we only had data until row 10, we need to get 4 as our answer!  (…the data set is bigger than this…)

Don’t watch the video until you attempt it yourself…

…then you can see how I tried to solve it with 1 Array Formula.

p.s. Honestly I shot this video over 10 times! It was originally intended to be 1 video, showing 1 solution, but every time I started editing the video, I came up with new formulas that could do this, so I kept shooting it over and over again with different solutions and finally it became a three series video.  Hope you enjoy it and learn more about Excel array formulas!
