    Reading the Excel board is a great place to learn new stuff. Any book by Walkenbach is useful. "Advanced" is a relative term. Anything in particular? Charting, pivot tables, VBA?

    Re: Learning Advanced Excel Book?

    For Excel, the books to get are John Walkenbach's books AND the Wrox Press book on Excel programming.
    There's material in each not covered in the other.

    After those, what one gets next is dependent on the application and other factors,

    Hi Mrs. Wolfman: <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
    I'm not knowledgeable enough on Excel to evaluate what is advanced, but "Excel 2000 Functions in Practice" by Patrick Blattner (QUE) seems to cover an awful lot. It comes with a CD. I mostly use it for reference.

    I've had great feed back from my users using LearnKey training CDs in both Word and Windows, from all skill levels. Sorry I haven't had time to check it for myself.

    KT, while not a book, the MVPS Excel site http://www.mvps.org/dmcritchie/excel/excel.htm is a great place to go and visit. Hundreds of links to just about anything you might ever want to know about Excel. HTH <img src=/S/compute.gif border=0 alt=compute width=40 height=20>
