Reply from Richard Rost:

This lesson is for Excel 2000-2003. If you have Excel 2007, you need my Excel 2007 lessons.

Hi Richard,

Yes, I agree with Brenda's comments. I'm an older adult who's not quite as fast as the younger set. Your tutorials are just the right pace for me. Thank you. I do have a question though. Here at home I have MS 2003. I'm sure that most offices in 2010 have at least the 2007 version. Will I be lost if I don't purchase MS2007 or will the updates not be too overwhelming? Thank you for your time.

Hi Richard,

This is a great refresher, how can I make the lines visible when I print the spreadsheet?

A great course. I've used it quite often in the past. Now I'm back learning even more. It sure beats the other software that I've heard friends talk about. It has really helped me a lot.

Charles, you want to fill a whole range of cells with the same percentage value? If so, type it in once and then AutoFill it across and down. If you want to apply it as a  format to block of cells, just highlight them all and hit the % button.

ALL of our Excel courses (101 through 232 as of this time) fit one ONE single CD. The shipping and handling we charge is PER ORDER, not per lesson. So no matter how many courses you order, the shipping charge is the same.

If I want a hard copy or CD of this Excel 101 to 104, do I have to pay $9+ for each lesson or can they all be burned on one CD?

Sarah, Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Works are two completely different programs. Now, I haven't used Works in a VERY long time, but I don't believe Works uses the AVERAGE function. I think Works uses AVG as it's averaging function. Works is OK for casual spreadsheet users, but if you really want to build serious spreadsheets, you need to upgrade to Excel.

If you don't see "Microsoft Excel" listed anywhere on your Start menu, you might need to reinstall it. You can try searching for "EXCEL.EXE" with a Windows Search, but if you simply reinstall the program, it will recreate any shortcuts for you.
