Excel Version History

Excel Version History

The table below lists the various versions of Excel for Windows that you may encounter.

Version Released Comments
1 1985 Version 1, for the Macintosh was released.
2 1987 The first Windows version was labeled « 2 » to correspond to the Mac version. This included a run-time version of Windows.
3 1990 Included toolbars, drawing capabilities, outlining, add-in support, 3D charts, and many more new features.
4 1992 The first « popular » version. Included lots of usability features.
5 1993 A major upgrade. Included multi-sheet workbooks and support for VBA.
7* 1995 Known as Excel 95. The first major 32-bit version of Excel**. Feature-wise, it’s very similar to Excel 5.
8 1997 Known as Excel 97. A new interface for VBA developers, UserForms, data validation, and lots more.
9 1999 Known as Excel 2000. Can use HTML as a native file format, « self-repair » capability, enhanced clipboard, pivot charts, modeless user forms.
10 2001 Known as Excel 2002, this is part of Office XP. It has a long list of new features, but most of them will probably be of little value to the majority of users. Perhaps the most significant feature is the ability to recover your work when Excel crashes.This version features product activation technology (i.e., copy protection). Please consider the ramifications of this before deciding whether to upgrade.

Read John Walkenbach’s Excel 2002 Review at PC World.

11 2003 It’s called Microsoft Office Excel 2003.The new features in this version are: (a) improved support for XML, (b) a new « list range » feature, (c) Smart Tag enhancements, and (d) corrected statistical functions. Most users will not find the upgrade worthwhile.
12 2007 Finally, some major changes in Excel. For some, the changes may actually be too major.
14 *** 2010 New features include sparkline graphics, pivot table slicers, an updated Solver, and a 64-bit version..
15 2013 New features include a single-document interface, charting enhancements, and recommended charts and pivot tables.

* There is no Excel 6. Beginning with Excel 7, the version numbering was changed so all of the Microsoft Office applications would have the same version number.

** There was also 32-bit version of Excel 5, but it was not widely distributed.

*** There is no Version 13 of Microsoft Office
