Excel is Fun

excel is fun excel tips Jul 16, 2021

There are many people that think Microsoft Excel is just a spreadsheet application, and it's not really all that fun. Especially when compared to another popular product like PowerPoint that is more visually appealing. 

What more advanced users know are different ways to use spreadsheets that aren't just crunching numbers or running calculations (queue Michael Scott from The Office not knowing how Excel works). 

In this post, we're going to share 10 Reasons why Microsoft Excel is Fun. 

10 Reasons Microsoft Excel is Fun

Advanced users know there are all sorts of different things you can do with Excel. 

If you're looking for some tips on how to make your work life easier, then keep reading below!


  • It helps you quickly and easily create a spreadsheet to organize your data. With Excel, you can make tables of information in seconds that would otherwise take hours or days with pen and paper!

  • It has an ever expanding library of functions for analyzing numbers. These include statistics (mean, median), engineering analysis (root mean square) as well as financial tools such as net present value calculations. You don't have to be a finance wizard to find these useful--it's just adding new tabs onto the existing spreadsheet, so anyone can do them!
  • Charts are easy and fast to generate when using this program. It's not timele consuming to create a bar chart or pie chart, and these are much more attractive than tables of numbers.

  • It has powerful graphics tools for those who want to do advanced analysis on their data such as histograms (histogram) and scatter plots (scatter). It's great for quickly checking linear relationships between variables by number and graphing them all in one spot.

  • You can make graphs that are interactive--you click through the points on the graph to get additional information about each point!

  • It lets you add conditional formatting so your charts stand out even without extra design touches like colors or clip art. Conditional formatting can change the color of a cell based on its contents, for example.

  • You can create tables with formatting that looks like it came from an expensive spreadsheet program or word processing software. You'll have to build your own templates if you want them to be available all the time - but we think this one's worth the trouble!

  • Microsoft excel is fun because of everything in between these points: pivot table pivots and subtotals; pie charts (pie chart); functions such as AVERAGE() JOIN(), MAX(), MIN(); conditional formats; data validation rules. 

Last but not least:

  • It's fun because where would we be without everything else?

It may take some time, but regular users of Excel find ways to make it fun. If you want to utilize the fun parts of Excel, try take a look at our catalog of 100+ Excel templates designed to make spreadsheets easy to use and fun.
