What You Need to Know

This is not a book for beginning Excel users. If you have no experience with Excel, a better choice might be my Excel 2003 Bible, which provides comprehensive coverage of all the features of Excel. It is meant for users of all levels.

To get the most out of this book, you should be a relatively experienced Excel user. I didn't spend much time writing basic how-to information. In fact, I assume that you know the following:

♦ How to create workbooks, insert sheets, save files, and so on

♦ How to navigate through a workbook

♦ How to use the menus and shortcut menus

♦ How to manage Excel's toolbars

♦ How to enter formulas

♦ How to use Excel's worksheet functions

♦ How to name cells and ranges

♦ How to use basic Windows features, such as file management techniques and the Clipboard

If you don't know how to perform the preceding tasks, you could find some of this material over your head, so consider yourself warned. If you're an experienced spreadsheet user who hasn't used Excel 2003, Chapter 2 presents a short overview of what this product offers.
