Application Overview: Microsoft Excel
Microsoft Excel is a powerful tool to create and format spreadsheets and to analyze, evaluate, and calculate data. You can use advanced features to manage, track, and chart critical business data to create rich data visualization, PivotTable views, and professional-looking charts. You can compile your company’s data into Microsoft Office Excel by retyping or by copying and pasting. But importing is most effective when you're working with large amounts of data that would be time-consuming to enter manually or too large to copy and paste. In addition, if you import your data, Excel can automatically update your reports and summaries whenever the original source database is updated. Your data is always current.
IT, Database, Engineering, Finance, Legal, Marketing and Admin Professionals as well as anyone who needs create and edit spreedsheets that can be searched, sorted, analysed, reported, updated and shared with other users.
