Welcome to Excel Plaza!

Please come in! Excel Plaza is a resource for the Excel community. It's a place to wander from "shop" to "shop" and read articles written by a variety of folks that really enjoy working with Microsoft Excel and helping others become better at doing the same. If you're shopping for a specific solution, please use our search tool (coming just as soon as I figure out how to add one to the website, I promise) or check our our Article Index. And feel free to just browse like you would a regular open air market or bazaar and see if you find something interesting!

Umm, yeah, about some of the "articles"... I've only just re-launched this site in May of 2018, so you may find whimsical placeholder pages around the website until each author builds up his library of articles.
