Best way to get proficient in Excel? New role requires intermediate proficiency of excel, previous role required zero. I can do basic math, basic pivots, but I don’t know vlookups etc.

Practice, practice, and practice. Look up videos on YouTube for vlookps. Just curious as to what company didn’t require excel for an analyst position
