Types of formulas:
2. Logical Formulas that give you a logical value, either TRUE or FALSE (like formulas that say whether two accounts are in balance)
3. Text Formulas that deliver a word to a cell or create labels for reports (like a label for a loan payment).
4. Lookup Formulas that look up an item in a table (like looking up a price for a product).
5. Array Formulas are advanced formulas that contain a formula element that operate on arrays instead of individual items and produce an array of answers.

Formula elements:
1. Equal sign (starts all formulas).
2. Cell references (also defined names, sheet references, workbook references, table nomenclature).
3. Math operators.
4. Numbers (if the number will not change; for example, 12 months, 24 hours).
5. Functions (IF, MATCH, INDEX, COUNTIF, and so on).
6. Function argument elements (such as a 0 in the third argument of MATCH to tell function to do an “Exact Match” lookup,or FALSE in the 4th argument of VLOOKUP to do an “Extact Match” lookup).
7. Comparative operators.
8. Join operator: Ampersand (join symbol: &).
9. Text within quotation marks (for example, “For the Month Ended”).
10. Array constants (for example, {1,2,3}).
