Last paragraph

"You will need the simple to-do list workbook located in the Chapter02 practice file folder to complete this exercise..." However, the file is not located in the folder for Chapter02. Instead, it's located in the folder for Chapter01, which, according to the list on page xxiv in the Introduction, shouldn't even exist!

Note from the Author or Editor:
I sent a request to correct the files and have verified they've been fixed in both the H&S and Pro books.

Entire exercise

Microsoft removed the Insert Online Video feature in a recent update, so this exercise can no longer be completed.

On pg. 505, the workbook has no labels. On 506, the workbook suddenly is different with extra rows with titles. The directions never really explain how to add the labels??? The text says that, "this time, because you selected the label in column A in the selection, Excel added the label." There is no explanation how to get "name" drop down does the selection automatically and I can't get the label column to get selected. Really confused. I am a CS teacher and will need to teach 2013 next semester. Help.

Note from the Author or Editor:

Insert the following two steps and renumber the existing steps (7 and 8): 5. Click the Seven-Year Financial Summary worksheet tab to activate it. 6. Select cells A10:H10
