Excel let’s you perform any operations using the Excel functions and their formulas. These functions can have the arguments input as cell references.

Let’s understand how to use cell references in Excel and then we will learn about all Excel functions.

Here we will use direct numbers to get the result

Use the formula in the cell

=2+2 |

Result: 4

Every function must start with equals to sign (=). It tells the excel that the user needs to access Functions in the sheet.

Now see the same operation between two values using cell reference.

Whenever you will using cell reference. You just need to use the equals to(=) sign and just click the cell where your values are.

Excel helps you to differentiate between the 2 cell references with the different colour format as shown in the above snapshot.

Now press Enter and you will have your result.

Now you can use this output into the input of another function.

If the values are text, then we need to take it as strings and apply the functions appropriately.

Here string “A” is joined with string “B” using **& **operator to get the new text “AB” in the cell.

Now there’s one more thing. Numbers represent so many values in a text as Date, Time and currency. So Sometimes you need to change the format cell type to required field type using Format cell option.

Use the format cell option shown below or **Ctrl + 1 **shortcut keyboard key that will open a full Format cell dialog box

Changing the format you will get
