Question about one of the Solutions in the Book.

Postby mitchandsuzy » Sat Dec 05, 2015 11:06 am

Hi Matt and Team,

I am using your new book and I would like to check the solution to one the the exercises. Specifically Page 72 38-Sales Married Men - Bikes

Did you use exactly the same data base that we do?

I used the old vlookup to check my answer and it seems that my answer is correct. I have noticed that some of the column names are different so I thought maybe there was a database change.

KInd Regards
Suzy

Hi Suzy, thanks for your note. This sends shivers down my spine - yes it is an error. In fact I found this error before the final edit run and corrected the error, but something obviously went wrong and the updated image didn't make it into the final print run. I'm really sorry about that, but glad you pointed it out.

Here is the correct image.
