Dear Computer Lady,
I got Windows 7 and I find that Microsoft Works is not there anymore. I want to do spreadsheets.
Can you help? I have some of your lessons but haven’t seen anything about that.
There are a few options available for you to do spreadsheets on.
You can purchase Microsoft Excel. Even though Microsoft has discontinued development of Works, you can still purchase the last version online at places like Amazon. Here is an example:
You can switch to Microsoft Excel, or another spreadsheet program like WordPerfect Office. It’s a bit more expensive, but you can get the home and student version at a reasonable price.
A free option is for you to use OpenOffice at www.openoffice.org
OpenOffice includes a spreadsheet program that is similar to Microsoft Excel, only without the high price tag.
