The first thing you’ll
see when you open Excel is a brand new look. It’s
cleaner, but it’s also designed to help you get
professional-looking results quickly. You’ll find many
new features that let you get away from walls of numbers
and draw more persuasive pictures of your data, guiding
you to better, more informed decisions.
Top features to explore
Get started quickly
Templates do most of the set-up and design work for you, so you can focus on your data. Excel 2013 has new templates for budgets, calendars, forms, and reports, and more are on the way.
Instant data analysis
The new Quick Analysis tool lets you convert your data into a chart or table in two steps or less. Preview data enhancements like conditional formatting, sparklines, or charts, make it stick in just one click.
Fill out an entire column of data in a flash
Flash Fill is like a data assistant that finishes your work for you. As soon as it detects what you want to do, Flash Fill enters the rest of your data in one fell swoop, following the pattern it recognizes in your data.
Create a chart that’s right for your data
Find the best way to visualise your data in a chart by using Chart recommendations. Excel 2013 recommends the most suitable charts based on your data. Get a quick peek to see how your data appears in the different charts, and then simply pick the one that shows the insights you want to present. Give this feature a try when you create your first chart.
Filter table data by using slicers
First introduced in Excel 2010 as an interactive way to filter PivotTable data, slicers can now also be used to filter data in Excel tables, query tables, and other data tables. Simpler to set up and use, slicers show the current filter so you’ll know exactly what data you’re looking at.
