I tested out Excel 2013 briefly tonight; here are my initial impressions!
I am an accountant by trade and live in Excel most days. Therefore, Excel is one of the most important application in the Office suite to me, and I wanted to check it out briefly. First, go to the Metro desktop and click on Excel. I circled the tile in this screen shot.
You get this startup screen. I decided to take the tour and see what is new, so click on Take a tour.
Excel loads up a workbook that shows off some of the new features. Click on Let’s go.
The first demonstration is something called Flash Fill. Excel watches what you are doing, and anticipates when it can autofill for you.
