Book Description

June 30 2007 0596528345 978-0596528348 Second Edition

Millions of users create and share Excel spreadsheets every day, but few go deeply enough to learn the techniques that will make their work much easier. There are many ways to take advantage of Excel's advanced capabilities without spending hours on advanced study. Excel Hacks provides more than 130 hacks -- clever tools, tips and techniques -- that will leapfrog your work beyond the ordinary.

Now expanded to include Excel 2007, this resourceful, roll-up-your-sleeves guide gives you little known "backdoor" tricks for several Excel versions using different platforms and external applications. Think of this book as a toolbox. When a need arises or a problem occurs, you can simply use the right tool for the job. Hacks are grouped into chapters so you can find what you need quickly, including ways to:

  • Reduce workbook and worksheet frustration -- manage how users interact with worksheets, find and highlight information, and deal with debris and corruption.
  • Analyze and manage data -- extend and automate these features, moving beyond the limited tasks they were designed to perform.
  • Hack names -- learn not only how to name cells and ranges, but also how to create names that adapt to the data in your spreadsheet.
  • Get the most out of PivotTables -- avoid the problems that make them frustrating and learn how to extend them.
  • Create customized charts -- tweak and combine Excel's built-in charting capabilities.
  • Hack formulas and functions -- subjects range from moving formulas around to dealing with datatype issues to improving recalculation time.
  • Make the most of macros -- including ways to manage them and use them to extend other features.
  • Use the enhanced capabilities of Microsoft Office 2007 to combine Excel with Word, Access, and Outlook.
You can either browse through the book or read it from cover to cover, studying the procedures and scripts to learn more about Excel. However you use it, Excel Hacks will help you increase productivity and give you hours of "hacking" enjoyment along the way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for common issues Aug. 3 2007
By J. Druin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book could be titled "The Top 138 Excel Tips" book as well. The title seems to come from being a part of Oreilly's "Hack Series". The book is aranged roughly as 138 separate short chapters, one chapter per tip. Each tip is to the point and well explained. Samples, screenshots, and explanations accompany each tip. The tips are grouped into 8 actualy chapters that cover workbooks, built in features, naming, pivot tables, charts, formulas, macros and cross-application (such as Access integration). There are enough tips covered that different people will appreciate various parts of the book. It is not designed to be read cover to cover but to be indexed when trying to solve a problem in Excel. The titles of each tip are verbose enough that I can find what I am looking for by just scanning the table of contents rather than having to flip through the actual pages. This makes it easy to use and quicker; especially when I am at the computer and I just need to figure out how to do soemthing. I used tip #17 (validate data from a list on another worksheet) immediately to validate data being prep for posting to a database. Other tips were used within a few days so the book has already made itself useful in a short time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Required reading for anyone using Excel 2007... March 6 2008
By Busy B - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I've been preparing financial and statistical models in Excel for about 13 years, and I found the Hawley's book to be well written and organized. Unlike 2004's Excel Hacks: 100 Industrial-Strength Tips and Tools, this book covers how you can use Excel 2007 more effectively.

Disclaimer: I'm not a fan of Excel 2007 and its new layout and shortcuts, but this book is more useful than anything I've come across.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fine reference Sept. 7 2007
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Users of the Excel program who want to move from beginning to intermediate levels without hours of study will find this handbook of over a hundred 'hacks' invaluable, offering tools and resources perfect for handling information, worksheets, and data analysis tasks. Hack formulas and functions show how to use macros and other shortcuts to maximum effectiveness, making this a fine reference for not only college-level libraries strong in Excel resources, but for general interest lending collections where patrons use computers for business purposes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superior April 27 2008
By Omnilord - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Excel Hacks is extremely useful for anyone who works with MS Excel frequently. From the moment you open the book, or just page through it, you can pick up on so many useful tips that may not be apparent even in formal classes or after years of use. Having had both formal classes and spent years creating spreadsheets used in production environments, Excel Hacks has helped me improve my spreadsheet knowledge.

5.0 out of 5 stars More useful than I ever could have imagined Aug. 13 2007
By Greg A. Hurst - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
There are over 100 tips and tricks ranging from relatively simple for the novice user to reasonably complex for the power user. I've found myself going back to it again and again...and it's become the most dog-eared book on my shelf.

It does the best job of any book I've seen of truly explaining Pivot Tables as well as complex database functions.

Whether you're just getting started with Excel or whether you are a power-user (I generally fit into the power-user category), there is something for everyone!

I strongly recommend this book and give it my highest rating!
