This textbook is intended as a thorough introduction to Microsoft Excel and has been developed especially for students in higher education and users of Microsoft Excel.

This textbook is different from other Excel textbooks in several ways.

Organization textbook

Content of the chapters.


This textbook works with Excel 365, a product that is constantly evolving, with new features appearing with each new version. A key feature is the introduction of dynamic matrices and functions in the July 2020 release. This has made Excel 365 different from other Excel versions, including the 2016 and 2019 versions. Dynamic matrices are not compatible with all other Excel versions.

Does this mean you can’t use this textbook with Excel 2016 and later? No, only the matrix chapter is not suitable, but all other chapters give no problems. This also largely applies to the older Excel versions 2010 and 2007.
