New Worksheet Functions in Excel 2007

Bob recently upgraded to Excel 2007 and understands that there are several new worksheet functions in the version of the program. He wonders if there is a good summary somewhere of what those functions are and how he can use them.

Actually, there are more than 50 new worksheet functions in Excel 2007. The majority of those were functions that had, in previous versions of the program, been in the Analysis ToolPak. A good, general intro to the new functions can be found in this blog post:

You might also, in Excel 2007, just use the Help system to find the new functions. Press the F1 key and then click the “What’s New?” link. You should see a good overview of what has been added to this version of the program.
