One of the primary programs within the Microsoft suite is Excel. This spreadsheet was developed by Microsoft and released for Mac in 1985. The first Windows version was launched two years later in 1987. This program features calculation, tables, graphing tools, pivot tables, and a macro programming language called Visual Basic for Applications.

All active students enrolled in classes are eligible for free downloads of Office 365 ProPlus—including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and more—on up to fifteen personally-owned devices: five computers, five tablets and five phones.
