Playing Catch-up?

Some of us work for companies that have been a bit slow in adopting newer versions of Excel. Considering the state of the economy these past few years, this is understandable. The fact is, according to a couple of studies, some companies are just now adopting Excel 2007 for their employees.

The change from Excel 2003 to 2007 has been, and is, challenging to many Excel users. If you or someone you know is working through the Learning Curve of transitioning to Excel 2007, there is a nifty little Add-in available from Microsoft that can get a user up-to-speed in very little time.

As Microsoft states on their website, “This add-in adds a Get Started tab to the Excel 2007 Ribbon. Commands on this tab give you easy access to free content on Office Online, such as training courses, video demos, and other Office Online content designed to help you learn Excel 2007 quickly.”

To get this handy little Add-in, you can go to the Microsoft Add-ins site and follow the easy installation instructions: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/downloads/CD010214099.aspx

Anything that can make a user’s life a little easier is, in the words of Martha Stewart, “A good thing”. Cheers!
