MrExcel Inks a 3-Book Deal with Microsoft Press

I am changing uniforms this year. After 14 years of writing for QUE, I will be moving to Microsoft Press this fall.

Microsoft Press is uniquely focused on Microsoft technologies. Their books are respected and are carried in all brick and mortar Microsoft Stores.

I spent the first part of the summer of 2018 at the Kola Mi Writing Camp and recently finished writing the first title: Excel 2019 Inside Out.

Although the title says "Excel 2019", I expect most people reading the book will be using Excel via an Office 365 subscription. The book includes features exclusive to Office 365 and will include new features such as Forms, Artificial Intelligence Insights and new array functions such as SORT, UNIQUE, and SINGLE.

Pre-order the book at Amazon or use this link:

Bill Jelen is the author / co-author of
Excel Dynamic Arrays Straight to the Point

The new Dynamic Array Functions are just one side-effect of an effort to completely rewrite the Calculation Engine in Excel. Joe McDaid and the rest of the CALC team have the laid the groundwork for all future functions in Excel. Yes, the first crop of SORT, SORTBY, FILTER, UNIQUE, SEQUENCE and RANDARRAY are awesome and powerful, but they are just the first of many new functions that will come to Office 365 over the coming years.
