About the Author
Greg Harvey has authored tons of computer books, the most recent being
Excel 2019 For Dummies. He started out training business users on how to
use IBM personal computers and their attendant computer software in the
rough-and-tumble days of DOS, WordStar, and Lotus 1-2-3 in the mid-80s of
the last century. After working for a number of independent training firms, he
went on to teach semester-long courses in spreadsheet and database
management software at Golden Gate University in San Francisco.

His love of teaching has translated into an equal love of writing. For
Dummies books are, of course, his all-time favorites to write because they
enable him to write to his favorite audience, the beginner. They also enable
him to use humor (a key element to success in the training room) and, most
delightful of all, to express an opinion or two about the subject matter at hand.

Excel 2019 All-in-One For Dummies brings together plain and simple
information on using all aspects of the latest-and-greatest version of
Microsoft Excel. It’s designed to be of help no matter how much or how little
experience you have with the program. As the preeminent spreadsheet and
data analysis software for all sorts of computing devices running Windows 10
(desktops, laptops, tablet PCs and even smartphones), Excel 2019 offers its
users seemingly unlimited capabilities too often masked in technical jargon
and obscured by explanations only a software engineer could love. On top of
that, many of the publications that purport to give you the lowdown on using
Excel are quite clear on how to use particular features without giving you a
clue as to why you would want to go to all the trouble.

Warning: Excel 2019 marks the first version of Microsoft Excel that runs
exclusively under a home or business version of Windows 10. If your
computer runs an earlier version of Windows, such as Windows 7 or 8, you
must content yourself with using Excel 2016, which is part of an Office 365
subscription has all the power of Excel 2019 but in a slightly different format.
If such is the case, you need to put this book down now and instead pick up
the Excel 2016 All-In-One For Dummies by Greg Harvey.

The truth is that understanding how to use the abundance of features offered
by Excel 2019 is only half the battle, at best. The other half of the battle is to
understand how these features can benefit you in your work; in other words,
“what’s in it for you.” I have endeavored to cover both the “how to” and “so
what” aspects in all my discussions of Excel features, being as clear as
possible and using as little tech-speak as possible.

Fortunately, Excel 2019 is well worth the effort to get to know because it’s
definitely one of the best data-processing and analysis tools that has ever
come along. Its Quick Analysis tool, Office Add-ins, Flash Fill, and
Recommended Charts and PivotTables, along with the tried-and-true Live
Preview feature and tons of ready-made galleries, make this version of the
program the easiest to use ever. In short, Excel 2019 is a blast to use when
you know what you’re doing, and my great hope is that this “fun” aspect of
using the program comes through on every page (or, at least, every other page).

About This Book
As the name states, Excel 2019 All-in-One For Dummies is a reference
(whether you keep it on your desk or use it to prop up your desk is your
business). This means that although the chapters in each book are laid out in a
logical order, each stands on its own, ready for you to dig into the
information at any point.

As much as possible, I have endeavored to make the topics within each book
and chapter stand on their own. When there’s just no way around relying on
some information that’s discussed elsewhere, I include a cross-reference that
gives you the chapter and verse (actually the book and chapter) for where you
can find that related information if you’re of a mind to.

Use the full Table of Contents and Index to look up the topic of the hour and
find out exactly where it is in this compilation of Excel information. You’ll
find that although most topics are introduced in a conversational manner, I
don’t waste much time cutting to the chase by laying down the main
principles at work (usually in bulleted form) followed by the hard reality of
how you do the deed (as numbered steps).
