Microsoft Excel allows users to access, process, analyze, share, and display the information with which they run their business. Excel 2002 was designed to be an application that makes it even easier than before to access, connect, and analyze critical business data. At the same time, it gives everyday users the tools they need to get the most out of their data.
Excel 2002 now gives novice and intermediate users more confidence in working with spreadsheets by making more of the existing functionality easier to discover as well as by providing more intelligence to help assure users that they are not making mistakes. For the advanced users, Excel focuses on making common tasks easier and more intuitive. Excel 2002 is designed to make it easy for anyone to share data with others, connect to important data on the Web or within an organization, and analyze that data to make better decisions.
Excel 2002 allows users to spend time analyzing their data rather than worrying about their software. For example, in the past, if an error were to occur, it was likely that the user would have had to spend a significant amount of time recreating their work. With the reliability features in Excel 2002, users can continue to work even in the unlikely event of an error. Furthermore, a variety of security enhancements have been included in Excel 2002 to help users feel more secure when working with their spreadsheets.
