Entire Site

**Mega-formulas—a formula within a formula
within a formula—are enough to send even the most seasoned
Excel veteran running for the hills. With a little forethought and by
working step by step toward the formula you need, however, you can
tame those complex mega-formulas without fear**.

Does the very thought of having to make sense of, let alone construct, nested formulas fill you with dread? Some of those cells, so chock-full of complex functional gobbledygook, make us feel a little faint too. But with a little forethought and a step-by-step approach, you’ll be creating mega-formulas without fear. And maybe, just maybe, you’ll even be able to read and understand them again later.
