"Personalize" should be "Popular" On page 42, the 3rd sentence in the box at the top of the page titled "Belly Up to the Mini-Bar" contains an incorrect menu option choice. Change: "Click the Microsoft Office Button, click Excel Options, and in the Personalize category, select or clear the Show Mini Toolbar On Selection check box." To: "Click the Microsoft Office Button, click Excel Options, and in the Popular category, select or clear the Show Mini Toolbar On Selection check box."

Incorrect information about template files On page 50, the last paragraph is incorrect and should be removed. The paragraph to remove reads: "Note that in previous versions of Excel, you could put any type of Excel file into the Templates folder or any of its subfolders, and Excel would treat them all as templates. Office Excel 2007 no longer allows this—only template files show up in the New dialog box."

All references in this section refer to 'Open' dialog box which is implimented in Vista only. This is icorreect and misleading for users using Excel 2007 in Windows XP. Functions refered to in this section are not available to XP and earlier implimentations.

Note from the Author or Editor:
(previous edition of the book) True, although these issues were discussed in detail at the beginning of this same chapter. To have added XP information at every juncture would have swelled the book considerably.

1st paragraph and Figure 14-1

The references to OR and AND in the first paragraph are reversed. The formula on line three should read: =IF(AND(G4<5,F4>75), “Pass”, “Fail”). The formula appears to work in Figure 14-1 because the formulas in cells H5 through H8 in the And Or Not.xlsx Sample File, which is the source for Figure 14-1, correctly use AND instead of OR. (The formula in cell H4 should also use AND.) The last sentence in the paragraph should read: “If you use OR instead of AND in the formula shown in Figure 14-1, all students would pass.”

Note from the Author or Editor:
Yes, this was a mistake in the Excel Inside Out 2007 edition. It was fixed, and is correct in the 2010 edition.

last paragraph

You have an incorrect cell reference where it says: "The data has been filtered to show the numbers of a single category, Mystery, but by using the filter control at the right edge of cell B2, we could switch the table to a different category (or combination of categories). B2 should be B1, B2 is an empty cell.

Note from the Author or Editor:
Thanks for the careful review.

"seven" should be "64" On page 966, the second sentence in the description of the "IF" function contains an incorrect number of additional functions. Change: "You can nest up to seven additional functions within an IF function." To: "You can nest up to 64 additional functions within an IF function."
