SQLAuthority News – Virtual Launch Event for Office 2010 – Contest – Win MS Office License

Office products are integral products of any PC. I accept that without Office Suites, I can not survive or make enough leaving. I am blogger and use word to create my blogs. I am SQL Server Trainer  and I use PowerPoint as my presentation tool. I am SQL Server consultant and I use Excel to keep my work log. I can not see my life with Office Tools.

  1. Hi

    I had the opportunity to listen to Mr. Kamal Hathi in this years TechEd 2010 virtual event held at Bagalore. For those who wonder who is Mr. Kamal – he is the person responsible for getting the PowerPivot out.

    Answer to the question is – EXCEL.

    What people dont know is PowerPivot was internally code named as Gemini.

    (check my blog for more facts :) http://weblogs.asp.net/kashyapa/archive/2010/04/24/tech-ed-2k10-a-virtual-experience.aspx)

  3. PowerPivot refers to a collection of applications and services that provide an end-to-end solution for creating and sharing business intelligence using Excel and SharePoint.

    As SharePoint is not the option answer is ‘EXCEL’.

    PowerPivot for Excel is an authoring tool that you use to create PowerPivot data in an Excel workbook. You use Excel data visualization objects such as PivotTables and PivotCharts to present the PowerPivot data that you embed or reference in an Excel workbook file.
