This week’s email newsletter articles are:
- The World’s Shortest Excel Book Updated to Excel 2007 & Excel 2010
At only 30 pages, The World’s Shortest Excel Book was designed to cram the things you need to know into an easy-to-read electronic book (Adobe Reader .pdf file) along with Excel practice files to go with the lessons.
