Excel without a Mac

February 8, 2013 General Update

I sold my 15″ MacBook Pro yesterday and am waiting on a 21.5″ iMac to arrive in 2-3 weeks. So no more adventures with Excel 2011 for a bit. Time to dust off the Dell desktop and reacquaint myself with the “real” Excel. That of the Windows variety. I’m putting Excel 2003 in my rear […]

A Dynamic Dependent Drop Down List with a Horizontal Table Reference

April 9, 2012 Formulas

I received a comment asking if a dynamic dependent drop-down list in Excel could have a list where the “table headers were actually rows and not columns?” Since I’ve already detailed how this is done in the article mentioned above, I’ll keep this short. The screen shot below is what I’ll be referencing. At the […]

How to Update a List or Range without OFFSET

March 22, 2012 Formulas

I avoid the use of Volatile Functions, especially OFFSET, which is commonly used to update a list or range. They can slow down the operation of your workbook. For very large workbooks with lots of data, it can be significant and irksome. Worksheet cells that use Data Validation for a drop-down list can simplify the […]

Check the Analysis ToolPak Add-In in Excel 2003 [VBA Code]

February 28, 2012 Advanced

I recently began using the NETWORKDAYS function in Excel 2007, yet my file was going to be widely used by people with Excel 2003 (both are Windows versions). The NETWORKDAYS function is a standard function in Excel 2007, but with 2003 you have to install the Analysis ToolPak, otherwise you get an error. The only […]

An Excel Crossroads – Mac and Windows

January 5, 2012 General Update

I bought a MacBook Pro and installed Windows 7 with Boot Camp Assistant so I could access the “normal” Excel. This was important to me at the time because I was doing Excel development work in versions 2003, 2007 and 2010 on a Windows PC. I love my MacBook Pro, which I consider my computer […]

A Dynamic Dependent Drop Down List in Excel

May 25, 2011 Formulas

The other day I was reading a post over at the Contextures blog about Dynamic Dependent Excel Drop Downs and realized that using an Excel Table would provide an alternative method that is both simple and flexible. Tables are available in Excel versions 2007, 2010, and 2011. In this post I’ll create a Table to […]

Ribbon Home Tab Comparison – Excel 2010 Windows and 2011 Mac

May 5, 2011 Features

I’ll review each hard-to-find item on the Ribbon’s Home Tab in Excel 2010 (Windows) and let you know where they are located in Excel 2011 (Mac). I’ve even got some nifty pictures to speed along that understanding. Note: The Ribbons in Excel 2010 and 2007 (Windows) are interchangeable, but I’ll only refer to 2010 below. […]

The Mini Toolbar in Excel

February 11, 2011 Beginner

The Mini Toolbar is nice to have when you need to do basic formatting and the Home tab is not displayed. Introduced in Excel 2007 and available in Excel 2010, the Mini Toolbar appears above the shortcut menu when you right-click a cell, range, chart, shape or other object. Note: There is no Mini Toolbar […]

Add Freeze Sheet Panes to the Quick Access Toolbar

February 4, 2011 Beginner

Add a one-click Freeze Panes command to the Quick Access Toolbar in Excel 2010 and 2007. This command icon is conveniently hidden from the Ribbon and is named Freeze Sheet Panes. In a previous post I made the recommendation to add the Freeze Panes command to the Excel Quick Access Toolbar, but recently found out […]

Import Data From the Web in Excel

January 28, 2011 Intermediate

Excel 2010 and 2007 for Windows have the option to import data from the web. Excel for Mac users don’t. An integral part of working with Excel is using keyboard shortcuts. They make your life so much easier (in the Windows versions at least, in the Mac version I think they tend to shorten your […]
