Find Excel 2003 Commands in Excel 2007 Use this handout to find where Excel 2003 commands are located in Excel 2007. It consists of the following three sections: Navigation tips about getting around in Excel 2007. New location of buttons from the old Standard and Formatting toolbars. New locations of the old menu items. NAVIGATION TIPS Tabbed Ribbons The old menu system and toolbar buttons have been combined into stationary tabs with buttons on them. Click a tab to view a different set of buttons. Double click a tab to hide all buttons. Double click a tab again to view the buttons. Click the Microsoft button in the upper left to display this menu Special Tabs Selecting objects such as charts and PivotTables will cause new tabs to appear. These tabs contain buttons which pertain to the type of object you have selected. Double clicking the object will make the tab appear AND display its buttons. Marshall School of Business USC 7/12/07 By Wayne Wilmeth Page 1 of 13 Quickly Browse Through Tabs If you hover your mouse within the ribbon area and spin your mouse wheel, you can quickly scroll through the tabs. Split Buttons Note that some buttons have two halves. The top part issues its most common use while the bottom part brings up a list of commands. Accessing More Options Some sections on the ribbon have a "More" arrow which will bring up window with more options. Most of these you have probably seen before. Right Click for Quick Commands If you right click an area or object in Excel, you will get a popup menu and usually a small formatting tool bar. The popup menu commands will change to reflect the area or type of object you right clicked. Keyboard Shortcuts Most shortcut keys still work (for example, Control + S saves). However if you used to navigate the menu by pressing the ALT key, the letters or numbers you have to press now will be a different sequence.
