This workbook contains 157 worksheets, each explaining the purpose and usage of particular Excel functions. There are also a number of sample worksheets which are simple models of common applications, such as Timesheet and Date Calculations.

The Arial font is used exclusivley throughout the workbook and should display correctly with any installation of Windows.
