Excel 2013 is still the classic software for making spreadsheets, mathematical operations, and even financial projections. However, the new version made it less intimidating and much more user-friendly.
Easy-to-use statistical aid
Excel has always been extremely efficient, way to analyse data and generate various graphs. It catered to both beginners organizing simple tables and people running regression analyses.
However, its complexity used to make most of its nifty functions go by unnoticed. So, the 2013 version is all about ease of usage. Now, the tool will work for you while feeling much more natural and helpful.
Tabs for multiple worksheets
The tool has several changes in between Excel 2010 and Excel 2013. The most evident one is that now you will observe multiple worksheets in separate windows, not as separate panes. This means you’ll have access to separate ribbons for each sheet. Besides, there are fifty new functions for formulas, most of them highly customizable.
Suggested charts for datasets
The new version of Excel makes it much easier for beginners to put the various comprehensive tools it offers in use. Data analysis is streamlined now, with even suggested charts and formatting.

Many extra features aren’t visible right away but do wonders on the Internet. For example, it is now possible to add interactive Excel tables to web pages.
Business people using this tool will enjoy the possibility of real-time collaboration on spreadsheets. Everything is stored on Microsoft’s cloud, and, to make things even more convenient, it’s now possible to mark the parts of the sheet that may be edited.
All tools from the Microsoft Office 2013 now support plug-in modules downloadable from the Office store. When it comes to this one, Microsoft developed an answer to the real-time stock quotes from Google Drive.

It still comes with a steep learning curve, but Microsoft made this version the most helpful so far. With all the functions now included, it is one of the best worksheet apps available.
