The work performed by Excel is basically the job of entering data which is then processed

to obtain the desired results. It is, in principle, the same as entering data into an electronic

calculator. However, the data entered here consists of various types and coupled with

existing Excel facilities makes it possible to present the appearance of numbers, text,

associated tables, graphs and a database. This makes Excel becomes well integrated to

create a reporting text and the problem analysis as well.

Each version of Excel to be developed to always make changes and additions of new

facilities, while is still maintaining compatibility with previous versions. But the changes do

not alter the basic features of this software as a worksheet for computing applications. In

this book, we will be working with Microsoft Excel 2007.
