FILTER vs VLOOKUP, INDEX/MATCH, XLOOKUP, SUMIFS
In this video, which is part of Microsoft’s Modern Excel webcast series, we’ll cover the basic syntax of FILTER and then see how it compares to VLOOKUP, INDEX/MATCH, XLOOKUP, and SUMIFS. The question is: can FILTER accomplish the tasks we typically associate with these powerful Excel functions?
Note: not all versions of Excel contain the FILTER function. At the time of this writing, it is available in Excel 365 subscription only, and not in perpetual license versions such as Excel 2019, 2016, 2013, 2010, and so on.
