I want to learn the basics of excel (and will be using it for financial methods) - does anyone have any online sources that they could recomend?Failing that could you post an excel file which tackles some well known financial maths problem - anything for which the answer is well known (so that i am certain of what should happen) but of sufficient complexity to demonstrate the uses of excelmuch obliged (in advance)
