First, you're a newcommer to Excel and want to be hand held from the beginning to get started. I suppose that there must be at least a few people out there who don't know Excel - Well, my mother doesn't, but she's not likely to read this book anyway.
Second, and I suspect most of us fit into this category, we've been using Excel for a lot of years, but at a fairly rudimentary level. We do expense accounts, a few formulas to check things out, maybe use it as a calculator, etc. We don't do things like macros or pivot tables.
Now though, there's a new version of Excel - Excel 2007. It is worth spending the bucks on? What does it have that I might find useful? And I don't want to just see the Microsoft hype, I want a bit more than that. So here for twenty bucks or so is not only a description of what's new, but how to use it.
As best I can tell, the biggest change in Excel 2007 in in its user interface. There's a new look on the screen called the ribbon. This seems to replace all the various toolbars and the like from previous versions with a new layout that puts the bulk of the Excel commands you use only one click away. (The existing File button is replaced by an 'Office' button.) Furthermore, the Ribbon appears to be a dynamic thing. As you are doing something different, for example charting, a different set of frequently used commands appear in the Ribbon. The Ribbon is also easy to customize, so if you're doing a spreadsheet for someone else to use, you can get rid of things that might get them into trouble.
Down inside there are a bunch of other changes.Read more ›
