Excel history

Microsoft Corporation launched Excel in 1985 as a spreadsheet system to organise data in columns and row. Is has the capability to manipulate large amounts of data using formulas executing mathematical tasks.

Its predecessor, Lotus 1-2-3 dominated the market from 1982. Microsoft saw the opportunity to release a fast application with strong graphics to the Apple Inc. Macintosh computer user. Lotus 1-2-3 was not supported on Macintosh which allowed Excel to gain significant momentum up until Microsoft launched its new Windows operating system in 1987. Lotus were slow to respond and by the mid-1990s Excel, with its highly developed graphic interface and powerful functionality, was the dominant spreadsheet application.

Excel has evolved extensively over the years and in 2007 featured a new user interface allowing full sharing with other Microsoft products including PowerPoint and Word. This facilitates seamless data movement between applications. Other enhancements included security, formula writing, data sharing, filtering and sorting.

Excel has evolved to be the most important computer program in organisations all over the world. It is endemic in all functions across every industry and provides benefits for business process and flow. Excels power has become engrained in business processes globally from market analysis to budgeting, to management reporting.

It’s the code that is read to action a task in Excel, automating tasks with varying degrees of complexity. VBA can turn repetitive manual procedures into single button applications.
