Summary: I have the Windows XP operating system, I like and have no desire to upgrade. I had been using the Google docs spreadsheet that also converts to MS Excel but I really needed Excel for the sake of efficiency. But the latest versions of Excel require that I upgrade my Widows XP to Windows 7 or 8 and it seems almost impossible to find Excel 2010 anywhere. I turned to Ebay and found a vendor who sold me a brand new copy of Excel 2010 and I'm very satisfied with my purchase.
Summary: As I take a few minutes to get away from this software I'd figure I'd give it a solid four. . . Even a moderate user like me can quickly adapt to many of the features of this popular spreadsheet program. Easy to use and utilize- it didn't take long for me to adapt to the features necessary to get quality work out of this product. Praising Microsoft is like rooting for Goliath, but they got this one right. . .
Summary: As much as I dislike Microsoft, I do like Excel. It is very intuitive and does the job. One neat feature is to be able to copy any data table from anywhere and paste into a spreadsheet. Then you can manipulate, add, average out etc. any data in the table and also have instant charts if you want.
Summary: As there is no RateItAll description for this software, Excel is a spreadsheet program primarily used for working with and manipulating numbers (eg financial statements, reports and graphs). I have used other spreadsheet programs (ie Lotus and Quattro); however, Excel seems to be the most powerful and intuitive.
Summary: If you don't have this skill, you must take a course in it especially if you are seeking some kind of office related job. Being in the recruiting business, I find that almost 95% of my clients will not even look at someone that doesn't know how to use this feature proficiently.
