Excel is a well-known spreadsheet application. Use it to collate and organise data, to carry out calculations and analysis, and to create graphs.
Excel is made available as part of the Microsoft Office suite and also sold separately. Separate versions suit the Windows and Mac operating systems. From time to time, students can obtain Microsoft Office at a discount in student promotions. Members of staff can download it from http://ox.ac.onthehub.com . All requests for help with purchasing, downloading and installing need to go to firstname.lastname@example.org or toll free in the UK at 0800 098 8436.
