Hi Outthere!

I have a software question. Which Excell software will be able to download both the Rule Maker Essential and Rule Maker Ranker. I see that there is Excell 97 68K, 95 41K and I think a 97 and 95 53K. I think I would like to start off with the Essential and go to the Ranker. I still have to buy the software. Thanks!

I believe that if you buy Office 97, which includes Excel 97, you should be able to use both products. Excel is backwards compatible, so you should be able to view Excel 95 or Excel 5.0 documents inside of Excel 97. By the way, I've heard you can get cheap (~$30) legal copies of Microsoft Office 97 over on eBay, so I would check that route before heading to the nearest software store.

Hope this helps.

rating a bunch of companies with the Essential and then going to the Ranker is an excellent way to go. to be honest i think it would be hard to buy a version of excell that won't run the 95 version of the spread sheet.

but for expert advice try this board:

I'm hoping you can answer this one too!
I have Windows 98 and Microsoft Works Suite 99. Is Excel 97 compatible with Windows 98, or do I have to spring $250.00 for the 2000 version? Thanks!

Mjmkkh,

Sorry, I'm not Lanceman but I can field the question. Oh, and sorry to Lanceman for stealing part of his spotlight . :)

Yes, Office 97 (Excel 97) will run on Windows 98. That's what I was running until Office 2000 came along.

If you are interested in saving money, you can download Sun's Star Office for free.

Their spread sheet tool runs the excell spreadsheets fine.
