Excel Project 3 – MS Excel
Note: Microsoft Office 365, the online version, is not appropriate for the course. But anyone who has
an Office 365 subscription has access to a fully functioning downloadable version of Office 2013 or
2016 If you do not have an Office 365 subscription you may download the 2016 or 2019 version of
Microsoft Office Professional Plus or Microsoft Office Home & Business from OntheHub. (See the
Course Resources link.)
If you are using a Chromebook, the only Excel product available from the Google Play Store is not a
full version of Excel and cannot be used to complete the steps in our Excel projects (it is missing
about 30% of the normal Excel functions). The Chromebook will not allow you to download the full
Excel from UMGC 365
