Learn Excel 2013 – “How to Buy PowerPivot 2013”: Podcast #1649
This is another one of those times when one has to ask her/himself: “What were they thinking, really?” Is this a Fail in the making?
Live from Washington, Bill Jelen checks in: “Microsoft marketing has made it incredibly difficult to buy Excel 2013 with PowerPivot. I’ve heard a lot of people say that they won’t upgrade and will stick with Office 2010 forever, but this really isn’t practical.
In today’s video, I offer a workaround that will allow individuals or small companies to actually purchase Excel 2013 with PowerPivot 2013.”
