00:00:02,001 --> 00:00:09,000Welcome to VTC's Microsoft Excel 2007 Training Course. You have made an important step into the wonderful world of spreadsheets. My name is Cheryl Brumbaugh Duncan and I will guide you through this course. I've been a user of spreadsheets since Visicalc was released in the 1970s and I became hooked on spreadsheet programs. Then when Microsoft first released Excel in 1985 I switched over to this exciting new software program and I have been a user ever since. I have watched Excel grow to a very robust program that provides tools and features to help you create, analyze, share, and manage your data. Excel 2007 is one of three programs that make up the Microsoft Office 2007 Suite of software. Office 2007 is comprised of Excel, Word, and Powerpoint. In this release of Microsoft Office, the talented programmers at Microsoft have completed redesigned its interface. The menu bar that is standard in most software programs, as well as all previous releases of Microsoft Office has now been replaced with a new feature called the Ribbon. All the commands, options, and features that you used to access through the menu bar and the dialog box are now readily available through one of the various tabs that make up the Ribbon. You have the Home tab, the Insert tab, Page Layout, Formulas, Data, Review, View, and Add-ins tabs. If you are new to Excel or already a user of Excel you will find this course beneficial as it guides you through the features and tools and options of this redesigned and powerful new release of Microsoft Excel. You will also notice some other differences in my screen, as I am running Windows Vista as my operating system. Windows Vista is Microsoft's new operating system and it replaces Windows XP. It is not essential to have Windows Vista installed to run any of the Office 2007 Suite of software so whether you are using Windows Vista or Windows XP Home Edition, or Windows XP Professional operating system, you will find that Office 2007 runs on each platform with only minor differences. These differences will not affect this course and you'll be able to follow along regardless of your operating system. We have a lot to cover and many new exciting skills and techniques to learn, so let's begin.
