  8. Lee Townsend says:

    Please include Chris Newman, http://www.thespreadsheetguru.com, and John Michaloudis, http://myexcelonline.com. Also SUMPRODUCT is a great function as well as the INDEX/MATCH pair. If VBA is considered a feature, that should be included as well. I often end up at stackoverflow.com. Their solutions are usually pretty good.

    Thanks for making the list.

  9. Debra says:

    Thanks Lee, and I’ve added those.

  10. Michael J Fox says:

    The first spread sheet program I used was back in about 1986 or so was called S2020 on a Prime computer.
