With the impending launch of Office 2010 this year, I thought it would be interesting to know what versions of Excel readers were currently using.
Please use the poll at the top left of this blog to let me know.
Personally, I have both 2007 and 2003 installed but I still do most of my development work for clients in Microsoft Excel 2003, because of the backwards compatibility issues from Excel 2007. Excel 2007 is much more powerful, particularly with large datasets, but the potential problems if the client is using 2003 are too great to justify changing my default position. I also have many corporate clients who have not made the move up to 2007 for similar reasons.
I also have the Beta version of 2010 but have not had the time to properly play with it yet.
