Excel’s new LET function can make your formulas easier to read and it can improve the performance of your formulas so they run faster. This applies to formulas that use the same expression (e.g. formulas, values) multiple times.

In this video you’ll learn the basics of the LET function and also find out in which situation the LET function can REALLY make a difference for you. I measured the time for a full calculation on a large data set for different scenarios. You’ll be surprised when you see the results!

Many thanks to Skillshare for sponsoring this video!

Note: LET function is not available in Excel 2019 or Excel 2016. Only in Excel for Microsoft 365.
