The intuitive and user-friendly interface of Microsoft Excel 2013 allows even inexperienced users to get started quickly and easily.
One of the highlights of Excel 2013 is above all the flash preview feature: It automatically recognizes patterns in tables and makes suggestions for automatic additions. In addition, Microsoft Excel 2013 not only offers the new Strict Open XML file format with the .xlsx extension, but also a compatibility mode to ensure the use of older Excel documents.
From a technical point of view, the versionExcel 2013 offers the advantage that it still runs under Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008. This means that the software can also be used on older computers - an advantage especially for private users and self-employed persons, but also for smaller companies looking for an economic solution to cover their software needs.
Excel 2013 also offers the option of using Microsoft SkyDrive to save Excel worksheets and sheets online, so that they are also available in the cloud and can be shared with other users via SharePoint and also edited by them.
Excel 2103 is availablefrom Wiresoft at a reasonable price as a stand-alone program in the purchased version. The following overview presents the most important features and extensions of Excel 2013.
Excel 2013 - Presentation of the most important new features
The 2013 Standard version of the proven spreadsheet software has new tools that support users even better in processing and analyzing large amounts of data. For example, Excel 2013 recognizes patterns while editing data sets, suggests suitable charts and provides tools for direct editing.
Wizards make it easier to use Excel 2013
Even the basic settings of Excel 2013 are designed in such a way that functions are clearly arranged and, thanks to a number of presets, many configurations can be automatically adopted when creating new worksheets, which saves time when working with the software. Users will find templates for forms and reports, but also for budgets and calendars and others.
The program also recognizes recurring patterns in the processing of data and makes them available automatically. In addition, it offers even more convincing representations of data to facilitate their interpretation from individual points of view, etc:
- Quick analysis: The option of immediate data analysis makes it possible to immediately create a chart or table from existing data in just two steps. The preview displays the selected data in a conditional format, e.g. as sparklines or charts.
- Flash Preview: The Flash Fill Assistant takes over further work as soon as it has recognized which process a user is about to perform. The user then enters the remaining data in full, following the pattern that he has recognized in the data. This allows data columns to be filled in a single step.
- Chart recommendations: This Excel feature recommends the most suitable chart types based on the existing data and compares them. Users then only need to select the chart that best suits their preferred presentation. Chart data slices: This tool makes it much easier to view data in query and other Excel spreadsheets. The data slices, previously only available in PivotTable data, are much easier to set up and use, and they display the current filter, so users always know what data they are looking at separately.
- A separate window for each workbook: Instead of clicking back and forth between two tabs, Excel 2013 can display each workbook in a separate window. This makes it much easier to work on two workbooks simultaneously, especially when using a second monitor.
Powerful data analysis in Excel 2013
Above all, Excel 2013 offers powerful tools and functions to process and use data efficiently:
- PivotTable Wizard: The creation of a PivotTable is now even easier with Excel 2013, because the program makes several suggestions on how to summarize the selected data, these are supplemented by a preview of the layout, so that users only have to select the appropriate type that corresponds to the presentation they want.
- Creating complex PivotTables: In Excel 2013, it is now possible to create PivotTables based on multiple tables, and relationships can also be created between the individual tables.
- field list when creating different layouts of PivotTables: With a single field list it is now possible in Excel 2013 to create the layout for a PivotTable for which not only one but now also several tables can be used. The field list simplifies the following steps: Finding the fields to be used for a PivotTable, adding more tables by switching to a new Excel data model, and navigating through all the corresponding tables.
- Power Query: Users of MS Office Professional Plus 2013 can use Power Query to make connections between data from a company's public and internal data sources.
- Include other data sources: Excel 2013 can also import data from other sources in the form of tables or PivotTables; for example, data feeds such as OData, Windows Azure DataMarket and SharePoint, as well as those from OLE DB providers, can now be used.
- MDX Queries: This feature allows you to establish relationships between tables from different sources, including those linked to an online analytical processing (OLAP) cube, for analysis without having to consolidate them into a single table.
- Timeline feature : Instead of being able to group data from PivotTables or PivotCharts by date values only, as was previously the case, Excel 2013 now allows you to interactively filter the data and display it on a timeline for different time periods.
- Drilldown, Drillup and Crossdrill: These features make it easier to navigate to the different levels of PivotTable or PivotChart hierarchies: For example, with Drilldown you can display detail levels in a more differentiated manner, while with Drillup you can navigate to a higher level.
New Excel file format Strict Open XML
Excel 2013 also has a new file format called "Strict Open XML Workbook" with an .xlsx extension that allows data to be opened and saved. Among other things, tables formatted with .xlsx have the advantage that ISO8601 date values are also read and written, thus also solving the leap year problem for the year 1900 known from previous versions.
New chart tools in Excel 2013
In addition to the "Recommended Charts" button described above, which suggests charts based on the current selection of data and which are the preferred charts for their presentation, Excel 2013 also contains a number of other functions for editing charts. These include three newly integrated chart buttons that make it even easier to change typical elements such as title, label and format:
- The plus symbol can be used to adjust the individual chart elements. Other options can also be displayed.
- The brush symbol offers setting options for different diagram styles and colors.
- With the filter symbol, data can be subsequently selected to be displayed in the existing diagram.
- Data labels: Texts can now be inserted for certain data points, which are not only updateable but also remain intact when the chart type is changed. These can also be linked to their data points using guide lines.
- Animation of diagrams: Changes to source data can now be displayed and tracked in animated form in Excel 2013.
Using Excel 2013 with online functions
By using the Microsoft online services SkyDrive and SharePoint, Excel 2013 also has some specific web functions. This opens up completely new possibilities for collaboration, for example, by allowing worksheets etc. to be saved and shared online:
- Real-time collaboration: Regardless of a location or the end device used, all participants can work together on a worksheet in real time.
- Sharing Excel worksheets via Lync: Lync users use Excel files even during an online meeting and can share them with other participants.
- Share Excel data on a web page: Users can embed worksheets or parts of them in a web page. This makes them available to other employees, who can open and use the data with their Excel program.
