New York consultant

As an Excel modeller I need to know whether I should start learning to use Excel 2007 or 2010. In people's experience what has been the uptake of either of these products. I certianly haven't seen them in any businesses but the idea that businesses will keep using Excel 2003 for the next 10-15 years doesn't seem right either.

* Before some bored grad tries to be a smartarse, I meant 'Excel' not 'Excell'

Do you mean Excell?

We use Excel 2007 and we're really big.

London financial modeller to Not a bored Grad (#3)

Hi,

I'm a financial modeller, I skipped to excel 2007 a couple of years ago.

Not sure I fully understand your question, it took a couple of weeks to get used to the layout, tabs concept, new shortcuts, more powerful formula, etc...

but I don't think anyone will shut a door in your face if you haven't moved on from excel-2005... Modelling is always more about solid building, flexbility of variables, mental approach, financial rigour etc.

I didn't like it at the beginning, now I couldn't go back to older versions...still full of annoying little things though!

hope that helps

Anon to New York consultant (#1)

Seriously, you choose one topic to post on a forum like this, and that is what you come up with?

Fine... Excel 2010 and 2007 are different in terms of user interface and slightly different in terms of capabilities (i.e. formula nesting), but frankly if you can work Excel 2003 then when the time comes you'll pick up 2007 or 2010 or 2020 when the time comes.

Now, get thinking about something more important. Like should you sleep with your cute blonde mate or hold out for her fit brunette friend to realise her boyfriend's an ass and she could do so much better by going out with you. Then you've got the issue with the other cute blonde who you slept with last Sunday but seems a bit sporadic in replying to your texts, so should you just ditch her and maybe join an internet dating site to improve your flow and widen your circle a bit. But I digress.

New York consultant to chameleon (#8)

Actually it turns out in NY (I'm new here) they mainly use the newer version of Excel. Which probably means the UK won't be too far behind.

I need to learn it asap, will go buy a book on it; but could any expert modellers point out to me the key areas I should look into?
