very correct . but i think google too has a similar app

You're probably referring to Google sheets.
It's not bad, the major attraction is that it's absolutely FREE. But it's cloud based, so you need to always be online to use it. Also it doesn't have a wide range of functionalities (particularity macros and all) like Excel; understandable considering it's a freeware.

Lol if you are into app development you'll know there's nothing "easy" about creating Apps. Excel beats app creation in 3 ways:

1) Affordability: App design is expensive, most Startups & SMEs in Naija, still struggle to cover more pressing business needs & don't have funds to hire a software developer.

2) Flexibility: Excel can perform a whole lot functions, there's no single App that is even half way close to meeting this.
Applications are usually designed to solve a SINGLE need. Excel solves MULTIPLE needs seamlessly.

3) Availability: Excel is very available. Almost any laptop/ PC you buy has it preinstalled (trial / full version). This makes it convenient to use. You don't need to consult anyone to get it.

My opinion sha o.

Na true o. Generic software beats custom software anyday.

4). Learnability: So many tutorials on excel. The support team is still very much alive compared to applications which would have bed bugs most times with no fix. Lol

Thank you for this timely piece.

Iam familiar with 'word' but not with Excel. I had never paid serious attention to Microsoft Excel, until now that I have business-related tabular work to be performing.

Pls, can you guide me on how I can colonize Microsoft Excel and perform the functions?

You're very welcome.
Microsoft Excel is very broad and no individual can master all the functions.
Here's what I advise most Startups & SMEs.
Identify what you need Excel for, could be:
1) Tracking Product Sales (Revenue)
2) Tracking Inventory (if you sell physical goods)
3) Income / Expense tracking
4) Budgeting
5) Petty Cash Management
6) Customer / vendor / supplier Database (storing contact & other info),
Etc etc etc
Then with this we can provide a customized tutorial video and sample Excel Spreadsheet to solve that need. The video will teach you the functions related to that area and the spreadsheet will perform the task.

This way you save time & are more productive.
As a Nairalander let me know which areas and I'll freely create the video & spreadsheet.

Oh okay, we already have a template that meets that. View template below. If this meets your needs provide your email address & the template will be sent free. It also creates invoices & a database to store customer information.

For Excel, my personal favorite is - Excelisfun; https://www.youtube.com/user/ExcelIsFun/playlists - he has several playlists covering different uses of Excel (Accounting, HR, Formulas, etc.)

For Word, except your profession requires some sort of publishing (where mail merge, change tracking, forms, footnotes or TOC is required) , you can learn by playing around with the application.
While tutorial videos exist, you can try Simon Sez it; https://www.youtube.com/user/simonsezittraining/playlists

Desktop publishing - many applications can be used here, at the basic level some people even use Ms word or Power-point. Would recommend Illustrator or Photoshop (most popular). Not really my field so can't recommend here, sorry.

Hope that helps. There's so much material online now, in fact too much material.
thank you so much.

Excel is just the best.

For those looking for a book, a Google search should turn up something. The issue is most are videos. But if you click the help icon in Excel or hit the key part key F1, you can have exercises to play around with.
