    Excel Charts

    Aside from tiring digressions, like the aesthetics of pie charts, and well-worn topics, like what is a pivot table, this work suffers from errors that make it hard to use because you must figure out what really will work. An example is Ch 7 on interactive charts where on p. 213 incorrect entries are provided (they omit an equals sign and have mistakenly used 'dates' instead of 'date'). Fixing these things is trouble, but eventually you find what is needed. On p. 228 and 229, however, incorrect info is given and no guidance that could help in fixing the problem. Instead of telling us how it works, which might lead us in the right direction, we are told that 'explanation is beyond the scope of the book' but 'it's not necessary that you fully understand them in order to use them'. *BOTTOM LINE*: wait for corrections.

    Excel Charts

    My interest was Chapter 7, creating interactive charts. Unfortunately, I found the instructions contained a number of errors that detract from ease of use. For example, on p. 213 we are told to enter Sheet1!Dates, but the correct entry is =Sheet1!Date. Ommision of the = sign or addition of the plural 's' means no results - big time waster. On p. 228 we are told to enter =N(OFFSET(...)) and on p. 229 to define the variable NewDates with a similar expression (I haven't filled in all the details). Neither suggestion works, and we are told that an explanation of how they are supposed to work is 'beyond the scope of the book'. I wasn't able to find the correct entries - BIG waste of time. Bottom line: sloppy, sloppy editing - wait for the next edition
