Specs: vista =prem, 3ghz

can anyone point me the right direction, after several years of office 2003 , i can no longer find the obvious/simplest features in the latest version of office 2007 :/

i need to show a simple bar chart (im now reliably informed this is now called a column chart) where is the chart wizard?
And the same for the edit 'undo' feature that is in office 2003, i cant find it in excel office 07

my top tool bar has home ,insert ,page layout, formulas,data,review,view

but no edit.

Click on the Insert Tab. You will find the section for charts there.

For the undo, look at the very top menu, up by the big round office button. There you will see a drop down arrow. Click it and you can select different options to turn on, one of them being the Undo feature.

I'll just throw this out there as an additional piece of info since you mentioned clicking on tabs and pull-down menus.

I don't know if this feature exists in 2007, but in 2003 you can use Tools...Customize...Commands tab to drag commonly used task buttons onto a toolbar so they are just one click away.

For example, if the Chart Wizard button wasn't on a toolbar where I could just click on it, I'd use the process described above to drag it to a toolbar for ease of use.

Thanks for your time


I didnt see the relevance of the small left & right arrows until pointed out by you.
I spent more time faffing with the toolbar ribbon.

DerbyDad thanks for the input, yes you would think so,
for info, the excel office07 has no obvious 'tools' option, its buried in the MOB (microsoft ORB button) excel options / customize. Looks like drag n drop is gone or not working it just 'adds' to a quick ref tool bar there doesnt seem to be a way to customise the ribbon,

ok this version isnt for me at the moment, spent too much time on back to basics, have to dig out office 03 excel , & play with this when i have time.

I found excel 07 hard going at first but now I'm whizzing around it like a seasoned pro. Far prefer it.

If you're working with spreadsheets a lot I'd say it's well worth a week of going a bit slower but it's your call to make.

Would be interested to see what other users think of it?
