The solver in Excel is part of an analysis tool known as “What-If analysis”. You can use a solver to ascertain an optimal value in one cell known as the “target cell”.
Basically, a solver is used for a group of cells that are directly or indirectly related. Constraints can also be applied to minimize the value that can be used by Solver. We will provide a step-by-step guide on how to use Solver to find a solution to a business problem.
Geocoding creates coordinates for a physical location on a map. In this Excel tutorial, you will learn what is a geocode and how to use geocode with 3D Maps.
We can use geocoding along with address details to map data within Excel. Once Excel recognises the address details and applies a geocode, Excel maps this allowing users to see a geographic representation of the data.
What-if analysis is the process of finding an input that will result in a specific output. In other words, What-if analysis can be considered as the opposite of formulas. Formulas calculate an output by providing inputs, while What-if analysis helps you find out what input will result in a specific output.
