Demographic Dashboard Lookup Edition

Become the Dashboard Master in your organization.

Take your dashboards to the next level with advanced lookup and aggregate functions!

Excel dashboardI know what you are thinking: “that’s not an Excel dashboard”. Well, it is an Excel dashboard, and if you follow this tutorial you will learn how to replicate it. Then you can use that knowledge to design an even better looking dashboard: your own.

The Lookup Edition of the Demographic Dashboard is a step-by-step video tutorial that takes you from a blank sheet to a fully functional dashboard. You will learn how to use advanced Excel formulas like OFFSET() or DSUM() and, unlike the VBA Edition tutorial, you do not have to leave the familiar Excel environment and you do not have to write a single line of code.

How it works

A 14-module course that shows you every single step I took to create the dashboard above. This dashboard contains:

  • Forms that allow the users to interact with the data;
  • How to use an Excel database;
  • Dynamic charts that change when the data changes (based on user selections);
  • Advanced Excel functions like OFFSET() and INDIRECT() or DSUM();
  • More than two hours of video;
  • The Excel dashboard itself;
  • The external data source.

Now, while you learn how to make Excel charts like a pro, you can apply these best practices to your dashboards. Get access to two dashboard tutorials, more than three hours of step-by-step videos that will help you unleash your creativity and create great dashboards using Excel. And you also get access a growing number of bonus files that you can explore and use to improve your Excel skills.

(Two dashboard courses only $97.00. 24-month access to the tutorials, 30-day, no questions asked, full money-back guarantee. Pay securely with your Paypal account. You’ll get a message from Amazon with a link to your gift a few hours after your purchase.)
