Excel is a spreadsheet developed by Microsoft but is by no means the first spreadsheet.



The very first spreadsheet was developed (or invented) by Dan Bricklin and Bob Frankston called VisiCalc. VisiCalc was a spreadsheet written to operate on the Apple II computer and was released in 1979. The program was sold to Lotus who developed Lotus 123 from the VisiCalc principle. Lotus 123 was released in 1983.

Excel, first released in 1987, is a development of the early spreadsheets and therefore cannot strictly be classified as an invention. Excel is far more powerful than VisiCalc but that is also a result of development over the years that Microsoft have been working on the product, and the increase in computing power.

Dan Bricklin and Bob Frankston never patented the product because software patents were almost unheard of in the 70s.

Excel is a spreadsheet program. You can do lots of programing applications with Excel. A more advanced database managing program within the Microsoft Office set is Microsoft Access. It comes with Office Pro and above. Otherwise it is sold separately.

Properties in importing excel table to an access table


This article explains how to import a Microsoft Excel file into Microsoft Access version 2.0 or 7.0. Microsoft Access can import files from Microsoft Excel version 2.0 through version 7.0. However, Microsoft Access cannot import Microsoft Excel 4.0 workbooks (.xlw). This article assumes that the Microsoft Excel file is using standard database formatting. That is:

To import a Microsoft Excel file in Microsoft Access 2.0 loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation');
  1. Save the file in Microsoft Excel using standard database formatting listed above. Close the file.
  2. Start Microsoft Access 2.0 and open the database you want to import the Microsoft Excel information into.
  3. On the File menu, click Import. From the Import dialog box, choose the appropriate version of Microsoft Excel that you are importing and click the OK button. Microsoft Excel 7.0 files are not on this list. If you are importing a version 7.0 file, choose the Microsoft Excel 5.0 option.
At this point options such as whether to append to an existing table or create a new table may be selected.
To import a Microsoft Excel file in Microsoft Access 7.0 loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation');
  1. Save the file in Microsoft Excel using standard database formatting listed above. Close the file.
  2. Start Microsoft Access 7.0 and open the database you want to import the Microsoft Excel information into.
  3. On the File menu, click Get External Data and then click Import.
  4. From the import dialog box, choose Microsoft Excel (*.xls) for the Files Of Type option.

    This will display only the Microsoft Excel files.
  5. Find the desired file and click the Import button.
The Import Spreadsheet Wizard appears and allows you to choose options specific to the file.

In order to use Microsoft Excel you have to buy a license. You can always download a limited time trial. Trial programs contain the same functionality that you get when you buy the perpetual versions.

If you don’t want to pay for a license, you can use OpenOffice, the leading open-source office software suite for word processing, spreadsheets, presentations, graphics, databases and more. It is available in many languages and works on all common computers.

Great software, same functionalities as Microsoft Excel, easy to use, and it’s free:
