Microsoft Excel is a spreadsheet program. It was originally a competitor to the dominant Lotus 1-2-3, but it eventually outsold it. It is available for the Windows and Mac platforms. The current Mac version (Office 2008) has removed Visual Basic functionality so macros cannot be used and those generated in previous iterations of Office no longer work. Microsoft announced in May 2008, that Visual Basic would be returning to Excel in future versions.
Each of the Excel tutorials is designed as two Modules. In the first Module, you'll learn how to create a spreadsheet, enter data and work with formulas. In the second Module you'll learn how to format, print, and create and print graphs from the spreadsheet. The individual areas, covered in each Module, are furnished below. All of the tutorials follow the same theme - creating a personal budget spreadsheet. This is purposeful. It was felt that, as a person progressed to newer versions of Excel, having the same tutorial theme would make them more comfortable with learning the material.
