Description Microsoft Excel 2010, and its predecessor Microsoft Excel 2007 both differ heavily from the earlier Microsoft Excel 97-2003 releases. The product features an overhauled user interface, focused heavily around something known as ribbon. Ribbon is a tabbed group of buttons and replaces the old toolbar functionality common with early MS Office products. Excel 2010 features only minimal improvements on functionality compared to Excel 2007, yet one standout feature is collaborative editing, which allows multiple users to edit a spreadsheet at one time, eradicating the issue of file locks.

Technical Details Microsoft Excel 2010 has a default file type of XLSX however this file type may not contain VBA macro code, something which is fairly common in more advanced files. Users who attempt to save files contain VBA macro code will be prompted to save the file in XLSM format. The main difference between XLSX or XLSM and the older XLS file type is that the files use an XML structure which adds business logic and structure to the files. The file types are also open, royalty free and are more efficient resulting in smaller file sizes.

Description Microsoft Excel is a commercial spreadsheet application written and distributed by Microsoft for Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X. Pre-2007 versions of Excel use XLS as the primary format for saving files. It features calculation, graphing tools, pivot tables, and a macro programming language called Visual Basic for Applications. It has been a very widely applied spreadsheet for these platforms, especially since version 5 in 1993, and it has almost completely replaced Lotus 1-2-3 as the industry standard for spreadsheets. Excel forms part of Microsoft Office. The current versions are 2010 for Microsoft Windows and 2011 for Mac OS X.
