anyone got any recommendations for 'teach yourself' textbooks for MS Excel?? are the '...for dummies' books any good generally? looking for a book about Excel - formulas, pivot tables, that kind of thing. as someone says on an amazon review, the information is probably all there in the help files, but MS's help files are about as much help as piles and as easy to navigate as the south cape. I'd prefer to have something in my hand I can easily refer to, if that makes any sense.
