Upgrading Your ExcelTips Subscription

Most people don't continue using the same version of Microsoft Excel forever. Things change, and over time you may upgrade to a newer version of the software.

As you do upgrade, consider upgrading the version of ExcelTips you receive, as well. There are two versions of ExcelTips published every week:

  • ExcelTips (menu). This version is for people using Excel 97, Excel 2000, Excel 2002, and Excel 2003. It is referred to as the "menu" version because these versions of Excel use what is known as a menu-based user interface.
  • ExcelTips (ribbon). This version is for people using newer versions of Excel: Excel 2007, Excel 2010, Excel 2013, Excel 2016, Excel 2019, and the version of Excel provided with Office 365. It is referred to as the "ribbon" version because these versions of Excel use an updated ribbon-based user interface.

These two publications are independent of each other, and you can subscribe to either (or both) of them. if you currently receive ExcelTips (menu) and you want to change to receiving ExcelTips (ribbon) and stop receiving ExcelTips (menu), follow these steps. (Hint: To receive both, just use the Subscription form in the right column.)

  1. Enter the e-mail address, below, at which you want to receive ExcelTips (ribbon). When you click the Upgrade button, a confirmation of your new subscription will be displayed.
  3. You'll get an e-mail welcoming you to the ExcelTips (ribbon) newsletter.

That's it. You should stop receiving ExcelTips (menu) and start (on next Saturday) to receive ExcelTips (ribbon).
