excel/word online tutorial

My girlfriend is going for an interview where she will be tested on Microsoft Word and Excel. Is there an online tutorial where she can take some sample tests or run through some applications? We've googled a few, but they seem to stop at beginner levels and to be rather cumbersome. Just wondered if anyone had some first hand knowledge of a site to head to. Regards/p &k

Finding the right Microsoft Excel formula

I've got an Excel spreadsheet with numbers ranging from 2,000 to 600,000. I want Excel to look at each cell and essentially categorize all of those into five categories in a new column. If the value is less than 10,000, I want Excel to give it a 1, if the value is between 10,000 and 50,000 I want it to be 2, if the value is between 50,000 and 100,000, I want it to return 3, if it's between 100,000 and 500,000, I want a 4, and if it's above 500,000, I want a 5. I tried the IF function, but I can't figure out how to a) make it recognize multiple variables, and b) I don't know how to tell it to look for numbers within a range. The Excel help section about arrays and lookups is fairly mystifying. Anyone got an idea? (I know I could sort the data and do this manually, but I'd like to learn how to do this Excel's way.) Thank you!

Oh. My. Code. Excel VBA Needs

I've created a button in Excel 2002 that runs some VBA when clicked. Works great. I've emailed the spreadsheet home and opened it with Excel 97 and clicking does nothing. When I run the subroutine from VBA editor, it works fine. So, what gives? Why won't this work in Excel 97 and what can I change so that it will run in Excel 97 and beyond? I've pasted the subroutine into the Extended box. Oh, and I'm really an infant with this, so please try and communicate on that level. [more inside]

Excel master needed...where to find one?

I run a computer service. I have an issue that is a bit outside the bounds. I have a client who has been using an Excel spreadsheet to track his portfolio. It is pre-formatted for him to enter data and the formulas are all there. Just recently, it started calculating some things incorrectly. The person who originally set it up just passed away earlier this year. We need an Excel expert that can look at the file and don't know where to begin to find one. Checked the local community college but no dice. All ideas or pointers are appreciated.
