For the last couple years I’ve been meaning to pull together some of the tips that I’ve learned working on the Excel team about how to make nice looking spreadsheets. Well, last week, Rob Collie (a previous Excel Program Manager, and now CTO at Pivotstream and author of PowerPivotPro.com) beat me to it with his post “In the Browser, Aesthetics Yield a Greater Return.” I had a quick chat with Rob and he was nice enough to let me pile on with my tips, which got posted to his blog on Tuesday. So, rather than spoil any of the surprise here, head on over to PowerPivotPro and check out 15 Spreadsheet Formatting Tips. And, while you’re there, you’ll definitely want to check out PowerPivot - it can take your Excel to a whole new level!

Feel free to post feedback on PowerPivotPro or here, I’ll try to watch both.

Boy, do I concur with the statements above... Now; I'm by far a designer yet do consider myself to be a (junior) Excel poweruser. 'junior' in the sense that I've only been using the critter for a good 6 months now. Yet having said I really admired and ended up to be plain out amazed with some of the templates you guys (office blog team) have provided during the past months.
As for me; I can only comment on the functional part of Excel and say it goes wide and deep (ever tried to use Excel to check the IP of a dozen websites and then store the result in the sheet & compare it with the 'main' IP ? I did (with a little help from Visual Studio Express) and it even managed to detect some mistakes on my part).
I'll be sure to check up on powerpivot sometime. Thanks for sharing!
It's actually possible to create nice looking spreadsheet, but while sharing online I feel importing the file to Google docs and using for various reasons like privacy and security. While I was browsing through read this blog blog.collatebox.com/.../share-data-online-with-better-security-than-spreadsheets.html
Looks like an interesting tool.
