someone told me about a trick where there is a flight simulator buried in excel that leads to the credits. truth or urban legend? can someone point me to find it?

Truth

Open a new book. Press F5, type x97:l97, hit enter, press tab ONCE, press Control + Shift and left click on the chart wizzard button on the standard toolbar.

Range is X97:L97, and the flight simulator is for Excel 97 only, i think... (NT)

Use "x2000:L2000" and follow the rest of the instructions and you should get a boring list of credits for the developers. A much more interesting Easter Egg for Excel 2000 is this one:
