Full disclosure: We are not expert-level Excel wizards. You might not be an Excel expert, either. While we know how to do quite a bit of things in there, there a folks we’ve dealt with who are absolute Excel wizards. We have clients that are Economic Research or Financial Management firms who have folks that can do some pretty cool things, and we have some guys in house that really enjoy creating spreadsheets with all sorts of data references, linking, calculations, etc… . But we know that we don’t know nearly as much as some folks. However, we do know a cool new feature when we see it.
So basically, you’ve created a complicate formula and want to re-use it somewhere else? Store is as a LAMBDA function (like “MyAwesomeFunction()”) and you can re-use it wherever. There is more technical details here on how it all works and how to set up your first function.
Yes, it’s a bit advanced, but if you work on massive spreadsheets that need to do a bunch of calculations calculations, LAMBDA would be a very valuable tool for you.
