Microsoft Excel Tips & Tricks for All Occasions

Excel Tips for Creating ChartsThe Bright Hub library of Microsoft Excel tips isn’t just limited to techniques and strategies for creating files needed in the business world – we also look at quite a number of ways you can use Excel’s powerful features to manage your personal finances and even how you can use the spreadsheet software to create your own games. In fact, if you already own Excel and have been thinking about purchasing an additional software product to help organize and analyze personal or business data, you may want to hold off on that purchase and see if it’s possible to use Excel instead. This way, a small investment of time could save you quite a bit of money!

In addition to investigating new uses for the application, many of these Excel tips focus on becoming more efficient through the use of keyboard shortcuts, macros, and other neat little tricks. And, if you’re using an older version of Excel – don’t worry. While many of these tips focus on getting the most out of Excel 2007 and 2010, we cover prior releases of the software as well.
