Posted By April On August 31, 2011 @ 12:17 PM In MS Excel,MS Office Help | Comments Disabled

This is a familiar sight for those of us who use Excel for any length of time.

With the newest versions of Excel we now see this:

msex_new_acct_button

Spot the difference?

Most people I’ve worked with don’t slow down to notice small differences but there is one here that increases the abilities of the original button.

The change is the down arrow to the right of the $.

If you click the down arrow you’ll find that you can use this to quickly format numbers in more than just the dollar system.

Click the $ and you get what you’re used to. Click the arrow and the whole world opens up to you… quite literally in this case!
