What’s New in Microsoft Excel 2003

What’s New in Microsoft Excel 2003

You’ll notice some changes as soon as you start Microsoft Excel 2003. The toolbars and menu bar have a new look, and there are some new task panes available on the right side of your screen. But the features that are new or greatly improved in this version of Excel go beyond just changes in appearance. Some changes won’t be apparent to you until you start using the program.

To help you quickly identify features that are new or greatly enhanced with this version, this book uses the icon in the margin whenever new features are discussed or shown. If you want to learn about only the new features of the program, you can skim through the book, completing only those topics that show this icon.


The following table lists the new features that you might be interested in, as well as the chapters in which those features are discussed.
