When you’ve got stacks of data to organize, you need a spreadsheet that is up to the challenge. As part of the Microsoft Office suite, Excel is one of the most popular options — and for good reason. Microsoft packs a lot of computing power into its Office products, but all that power won’t do you any good if you don’t know how to use it. 

Before you stress about learning a whole new program, remember that Excel wouldn’t be hugely popular with both companies and individuals, including students, if it was difficult to learn. Besides guidance and tutorials that are available straight from Microsoft, the internet offers a lot of free guidance to help you learn how to use Excel and other Office programs. Let’s take a look at a few good options to get you started.
