I know - I had read bout it yesterday
Xcelerate is it compatible with excel?
useful for on the move ppl. but i dont think it can be a substitute for excel. just another experiment from google. it will take time to mature
Yep, you can open and save (and download) .xls and CVS files. The upload thing is pretty cool, it automatically uploads it once you select the file.
I've just received my activation code...So I'm able to review it and I think It's usefull...
The best of all is that it΄s free.
Hope they develop an entire suit, such as Office or OpenOffice.
could do, though im not entirely sure.
The only downside is you have to add rows over 100 manually
Have not tried myself yet. Is it true it does not include printing capabilities?
I already signup with my gmail id. But not yet get invited yet.
Actually how many hrs. it will take to get invited.?
the amazing thing is you actually share the spreadsheet real-time.
Not surprised about the fact thats its on the web.Its all that web 3.0 stuff. From what i see its still kinda frar from being real threat to excel bit its a good start, eh? The functions are alittle limited, to say, but itll serve well for normal use.
I can begin to picture a future where it's not necessary to have a 3ghz processor, 512mb of ram and 100gb hard disk just for using the basics. Imagine if people who just want to use email and office applications could just buy a cheap, low spec computer running some basic kind of linux and a web browser. They just log in to google an they have their email and office applications there waiting with google doing all the processing.
Now I know this isn't feasible yet but we're certinaly gettng there and this is a small step in the right direction.
Fun to goof around with.
I don't have REAL purposes for it right now though.
I have done a test drive of Google Spreadsheet and it is very impressive. Uploaded some fairly complex xls sheets and seemed to load them without a problem. Noticed that the 'hidden' sheets in the workbook were displayed.
Understandably, Google Worksheet does not support macros so sheets do not have access to the user defined VBA functions. The sheets with user functions uploaded fine and displayed the current value in the cell.
Have not tried the sharing options yet - going to try it out with friends sharing some baseball stats, fantasy football fans will love this!
