Microsoft Excel 2016 Versus 2013 For Windows




This Excel Hint quickly goes over the two most current versions of Microsoft Excel. Yes, there are holdouts working in Excel 2003, 2007 and 2010, but the majority of people are working in 2013 or 2016. As such this post will quickly go over Microsoft Excel 2016 Versus 2013 For Windows.


There are many reasons companies do not upgrade as soon as a new version of Excel comes out. For many it is simply the cost, for others it is the fear of the unknown, what wont work, and what bugs are in the software itself.




For those companies that are stuck in 2003 or 2007, or firms that want to use Power BI, an upgrade to one of the two most recent versions would be a good idea. But there is something you need to know before you upgrade. If you want to work in the most ‘recent’ version of Microsoft Excel, and if you don’t want to upgrade twice in a year, then you should consider waiting for Excel 2019 (Click here to learn more). Yes, there is a new version of MS Office coming out, didn’t you know?


Okay, so if you are even considering an upgrade anytime soon, you will want to read our full post which has more than enough info and links to quality posts to help you decide.


If you were to ask me, I would say wait until the 3rd quarter of 2018, and upgrade to Excel 2019.
