RE: Spreadsheet

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I have to say, the latest iteration of MS Excel is pretty dang cool.

I have that $10/month subscription to Office 365, which gives us all the 
office apps on five computers and other devices, including both my wife's 
PC and my iMac.

The apps are Office 2013 (for PC) and Office 2011 (for Mac).
