Microsoft (MS) Excel () is a powerful spreadsheet that is easy to use and allows you to store, manipulate, analyze, and visualize data. You may not yet be familiar with this program. There are many handbooks available published by MS or other companies. We do not want to dublicate their efforts here. In addition, Excel itself provides several online help options, such as interactive tutorials and topic specific searchable help files. We think, this is the most effective way for you to get the most out of Excel. In addition, you do not need to buy and carry a book around. Also, if you know how to get help in one program you will be able to transfer this approach to teach yourself other programs, because the structure of many different software packages has become fairly uniform.
There are small differences between Excel for the Macintosh and for Windows and the different versions of Excel. Please select the version that you are using:
