Microsoft Excel Information
RealData software will operate on any Windows computer that meets our Microsoft Excel requirements. All of our software (except the e-course) requires that you have Microsoft Excel, version 2000 or later, with exceptions noted below. Other spreadsheet packages will not operate our software.
Note: On Schedule requires Excel 2002 or greater.
Note: The e-course does not require Excel. It is distributed as a stand-alone e-book or Adobe PDF file.
Excel 2007 / Windows Vista
Our March 2007 software updates provide compatibility with Microsoft Excel 2007 and Windows Vista for the entire product line.
Please note that version 2 of our RealData PDF print driver is not compatible with Windows Vista. Download Vista-compatible version 3, and contact us to update your RealData software to the latest release. Version 3 only works with our software released on or after March 2007.
Purchasing Microsoft Excel
It is more cost effective to purchase Excel
as a part of the Microsoft Office suite instead of Excel alone. Excel
as a stand-alone product is only available directly from Microsoft.
Compare Excel prices online with these websites: Froogle (comparison shopping site), PriceGrabber (comparison shopping site), Gradware.com (online retailer of software for students and teachers)
Dell and Gateway offer unbeatable prices on Microsoft Office as an option when purchasing a new computer.
RealData offers separate Macintosh releases that are compatible with OS X operating systems running Microsoft Excel for Mac version 2004 and Excel 2011. Our software will *not* work with Excel 2008 since it does not support VBA macros.
Excel 2008 and other versions of Excel will not properly run the software.
Please note that the Windows releases of our software will not run on Macintosh computers.
