Conditional Formatting Tutorial – Excel 2007 & 2010

Conditional Formatting is the practice of formatting cells in Excel spreadsheets to change cell appearance depending on certain conditions.

In this tutorial we’ll show you how to use conditional formatting to change the colour of cells depending on a percentage.

Excel Web App in Office 365 – Working in the Cloud

microsoft-excel-office-365You might have recently heard about Microsoft Office 365 – and if you work in IT you’ve almost certainly come across Cloud Computing.

Office 365 is Microsoft’s new “cloud” version of Microsoft office. Essentially that means online versions of Excel, Word, Outlook etc… that allow users to:

  • Access their office documents from any PC
  • Create, edit and share Microsoft Office documents (including Excel Workbooks) from PCs which don’t have the native version of MS Office installed on them

These online versions of the MS Office packages are known as Web Apps. Here we take a preview of the Excel Web App in Office 365 and how it will work.

What is the Microsoft Excel Web App?

The Excel Web App in Office 365 is essentially a web-based version of Excel that runs in a web browser. This means that you can run it on any PC with web access (you don’t actually have to have Excel installed on your PC).

The look and feel of the Excel Web App is exactly the same as the latest versions of the Excel desktop application, so if you’re used to working in Excel 2007 or 2010 you should have no problem using the web app.

But if you’re using Excel online – where do your Excel Web App workbooks get saved?

Depending on how you are implementing Office 365, the actual workbooks are stored in one of two places:

  • Windows Live SkyDrive - which is a free online storage & sharing service (if you use the Mac “MobileMe” service – soon to be replaced by iCloud – this is the Windows equivalent – If you have a Windows Live ID (e.g via having Hotmail account) you’ll be able to log in using this.
  • SharePoint Site - If your organisation uses SharePoint server, all of your documents can be stored here

How to Create an Excel Web App Workbook

If you already have a Hotmail account or Windows Live ID – try logging in to your account (if you don’t have one you can set one up here)
