Since the introduction in 1978 of the VisiCalc row-and-columnbased layout of what we know as spreadsheets today, these have evolved to become powerful business tools that are widely used across business functions. Step into any of the various departments in a business and you will find some business processes that are supported by spreadsheets – a budget spreadsheet to assist the Finance department, a customer spreadsheet used in Marketing, employee data maintained on a spreadsheet in Human Resources – the opportunities for using Excel spreadsheets to improve business efficiencies are endless.

Over more than three decades, the world of spreadsheets has witnessed a lot of change. Today Microsoft's Excel spreadsheet software leads the market, with Excel 2010 offering single spreadsheets that have 17, 179, 869, 184 cells in each worksheet!

Microsoft's Excel application includes a myriad of tools that, with the correct knowledge, can be applied to improve any spreadsheet-appropriate business process.
