VLOOKUP/HLOOKUP: For looking up and comparing numeric or text data from same or different worksheet
INDEX: Returns a value or the reference to a value from within a table or range.
OFFSET: For getting a reference to a range that is a specified number of rows and columns from a cell or range of cells.
Search: SEARCH returns the number of the character at which a specific character or text string is first found, beginning with start_num. Use SEARCH to determine the location of a character or text string within another text string.
Find: FIND finds one text string (find_text) within another text string (within_text), and returns the number of the starting position of find_text, from the first character of within_text.
Match: Returns the relative position of an item in an array that matches a specified value in a specified order. Use MATCH instead of one of the LOOKUP functions when you need the position of an item in a range instead of the item itself.
Indirect: Returns the reference specified by a text string. References are immediately evaluated to display their contents. Use INDIRECT when you want to change the reference to a cell within a formula without changing the formula itself.
Array Formula: An array formula can perform multiple calculations and then return either a single result or multiple results. Array constants can be used in place of references when you don't want to enter each constant value in a separate cell on the worksheet.
