Excel for Mac 2011 helps you analyze, organize, and manage all your data and lists. Then save, edit, and share online.
Display your data visually.
Create rich, visually compelling datasheets and tables with icons, data bars, and color scales. See enhancements like borders, solid colors, and negative values, as well as pre-packaged choices for formatting and filtering, including “Top 10,” “Bottom 10%,” “Text That Contains,” and more.
See trends within your data—and the big picture.
Sparklines are thumbnail‐sized charts that permit users to view large volumes of data at a glance, enabling the easy spotting of trends in time‐series data, or trendlines. Data can be expressed in bar, line, or column form. Sparklines are based on the OfficeArt engine, so they are rendered with very high quality and fidelity. They may also be “themed” to adopt specific color sets.
Manage your data.
Organize, filter, and format related data with Excel tables. Make managing and analyzing a group of related data easier, you can turn a range of cells into an easily viewed and manipulated Excel table. You can even insert more than one table into a single worksheet.
Summarize your data.
Spend less time sifting through data, and more time analyzing with automatic PivotTables. The popular PivotTable feature distills large sets of data into crisp summaries, and easily shows the cross‐tabular relationships between variables in the data. And in Excel 2011, PivotTables are more compatible with Windows Excel and have been redesigned for ease of use.
Program easily across platforms.
In enterprise situations where there is a mix of PCs and Macs, the Visual Basic feature works easily across all platforms. Visual Basic offers new features including IntelliSense and watch windows, as well as the Visual Basic debugging toolbar and new debugging tools.
Access your files anywhere.
Post, access, edit, and share your files from virtually anywhere. Excel is now integrated with Windows Live SkyDrive so that your documents can be stored, viewed, edited, and shared in the cloud from any computer with Internet access. Supported browsers include Internet Explorer on Windows, Safari on Windows or Mac, Firefox on Windows or Mac.
