Meet the Author

Greg Harvey has authored tons of computer books, the most recent being Excel Workbook For Dummies and Roxio Easy Media Creator 8 For Dummies, and the most popular being Excel 2003 For Dummies and Excel 2003 All-In-One Desk Reference For Dummies. He started out training business users on how to use IBM personal computers and their attendant computer software in the rough and tumble days of DOS, WordStar, and Lotus 1-2-3 in the mid-80s of the last century. After working for a number of independent training firms, Greg went on to teach semester-long courses in spreadsheet and database management software at Golden Gate University in San Francisco.
His love of teaching has translated into an equal love of writing. For Dummies books are, of course, his all-time favorites to write because they enable him to write to his favorite audience: the beginner. They also enable him to use humor (a key element to success in the training room) and, most delightful of all, to express an opinion or two about the subject matter at hand.
Greg received his doctorate degree in Humanities in Philosophy and Religion with a concentration in Asian Studies and Comparative Religion last May. Everyone is glad that Greg was finally able to get out of school before he retired.

    Excel 2007 for Dummies

    I got a new computer and had the Microsoft Office 2007 added.
    I was working with Microsoft Office 2000 and with it came a book
    on how to use it.
    However Microsoft Office 2007 has changed a lot. I need a manual
    to go by, and no manual book came with 2007. The colleges have not
    changed their computers over to Microsoft Office 2007 and there are
    a lot of differences.
    This book helped me find some of the answeres to my questions.
    I am still going through it as I run into problems and change overs in
    information.

    Not for Advance Users

    If you are an advanced user do not waste your money.This book is well written and properly organized for a novice. I was very disappointed being an advanced user. The small amount of information on the difference between to old and new versions of this software was the only thing that was worth my money. But I would have prefered another book on the actual use of the software and not an introduction. Again, If you are an advanced user do not waste your money.

    Easy to find information without reading the entire book.

    Not very helpful to learn common, everyday tasks for beginners

    It wasn't what I thought it would be. I was looking for a book to help me get started with basic tasks in excel. This was not the book for me.
