Your Spreadsheets won't Excel

Like many small business owners, I was a bit apprehensive about upgrading to the new Microsoft Windows Vista and Microsoft Office 2007. After all the listening to others and hearing their problems with the new system, I figured by now that all the kinks should have been worked out of Microsoft’s new offerings. I went ahead and upgraded all our office systems and must say that I have not experienced any problems with the new system so far.

Then I came across the following article that states math errors have been found in the new Excel 2007. It appears the errors have to do something with “floating point numbers” and the programmers at Microsoft are aware of the problem. They just don’t know when it will be fixed.

Check out the article and see if your spreadsheets have any of the errors included in them. As always it is good to foot and cross foot your totals for accuracy.
