An Excellent Learning Tool

BY RUSS ERICKSON

I enjoyed “ Push-Button Spreadsheets ” ( JofA , Sep.02, page 35). The authors did a fantastic job with the lesson, which I’ve just completed.

I would recommend the article to any spreadsheet users, even those who are wizards. Here is a realistic situation that shows how to prepare the type of spreadsheet that nonspreadsheet people can easily use for day-to-day business.
