For lovers and haters of spreadsheets

This post is intended for real nerds out there: people who use Excel. Woot woot!

I’ve been deep into the research/writing process for school and have butt heads with Excel more than a few times. The built in help functions really haven’t been helping me at all, and I’ve just resorted to doing a lot of things manually even though I know Excel should be able to do it for me. After receiving the largest Excel file I’ve ever personally had my hands on though, I realized that I really need to figure out the secrets of the spreadsheet.

The other night I met a programmer at a bar who was (drunkenly) professing his love for the program. I was telling him my Excel woes and he brushed them off, saying that all one needs to do is go online and search the problem and there will be tons of great answers out there. Duh. Why hadn’t I done this before? I have NO clue. But he was right. There are all sorts of helpful people on different forums answering all manner of Excel questions for the clueless like myself.

One resource I found and really like is a YouTube channel called “Excel Is Fun“.

Seriously good online tutorials for the Excel user in need.
