Excel 2016 from Scratch Exercise
Vertical Lookup A
An Excel tutorial by Peter Kalmstrom
a recent tutorial in the Excel 2016 from Scratch series, Peter Kalmstrom has
introduced formulas with the vertical lookup function. Here is an exercise,
that you can try yourself before you look at the solution in the demo.
As an example Peter uses a campaign with discounts depending on how much you
buy. The more you buy for, the bigger percentage of discount you get. The
lookup formula finds to correct price span for each purchase.
If you want to try the exercise yourself, please

earlier versions of Excel.
