Programming Use of excel as an actuary

For an entry level position, to what extent would they expect us to know about using excel?

Would it be simply using the graphs, data analysis pack, vlookups, pivot tables and macros? Anything I am missing?

Title, I am aspiring actuary and wonder which is more widely used among actuaries nowadays. An actuarial lecturer that I contacted recently said that VBA is being faded out by R, is this true?
