spreadsheet help

I've been using Microsoft word and excel. Once I got done making flyers and spreadsheets it locked the program so I can not edit either one. The program is 2007 and came with the computer. Iam looking for free programs for now, later on ill prolly look into quickbooks. Thanks

Might be. Its Microsoft 2007 I would have thought it would have expired along time ago. I though all computers came with it but you have the option of buying the upgraded version

If you are really good at using microsoft, then try openoffice. I learned it in a snap after using microsoft for years. AND its free!!!

+1 on the recommendation for Apache OpenOffice (or its sibling of common parentage, LibreOffice).

Migrating from Excel and Word is nearly effortless; you'll be referring to the User Guide more frequently in the beginning as there are some syntax diffs, but you'll be clicking on the guide less frequently in short order.

With the open-source, open-development stuff you're always assured of having the latest and the greatest.
