end of first paragraph

Refering to the Go To feature. At the end of the paragraph the arrow sequence to get to the Go To feature refers to the Windows version of Excel 2010 not the Mac OS, certainly not the Mac OS 10.10. I am actually wondering if any of your books, of which I have quite a few actually "talk" the Mac language. Could you please send me a short email answering my query? Many tanks. Andre Bonneau MD

Under Figure 1-7

In this sub-chapter, you refer to the backstage view. However, I operate a Mac Book Pro and I run the 14,5,3 version of Excel 2010, and the display and functionalities of the Backstage view are totally different. Consequently most of the text refers to a view to which I have no access. By the way, under version 14,5,3, the file tab is on the menu bar and does not operate the same way, nor does it have the same options. Mac's are really different creatures! Andre Bonneau MD

1st paragraph; line 6

Very minor data error. The book says "covering the time period January 2010 and December 2011". Figure 17-11 has dates that range from Jan 07-Dec 08. Also, it reads "August 2010 and June 2011) is missing". There is one more instance of this data error in paragraph 2. Great book overall though. A++

Power Users' Clinic, 2nd paragraph

The text reads, "For example, in the student grade calculation shown in Figure 8-11,...." Should reference Figure 8-12 not Figure 8-11

2nd bullet, 3rd sentence

The sentence reads, "This is a good solution because it's doesn't require any work on your part." Should read, "...because it doesn't require..."
