  3. Q. What new analysis tools does Microsoft Excel for Windows 95

    A. In addition to the list management, charting, and PivotTable(R)
    analysis tools currently found in Microsoft Excel, we have
    provided additional tools and enhanced the most commonly used
    tools. For example, shared lists allow multiple users to add
    and analyze data in the same file at the same time. For instant
    data analysis, AutoCalculate provides a running sum, average,
    or count of currently highlighted cells.
  4. Q. Does Microsoft Excel for Windows 95 use multiple threads?

    A. No. After careful evaluation, it was decided that Microsoft
    Excel would not benefit from multi-threading--in fact, we
    determined that this functionality would actually slow down the
    recalculation speed on a single-processor machine.
    Consequently, we focused our development efforts on rewriting
    the recalculation engine. In some cases, this redesigned engine
    results in a 50-percent increase in calculation speed.
  5. Q. Will I be able to use my Microsoft Excel version 5.0 Visual
    Basic(R), Applications Edition, modules in Microsoft Excel for
    Windows 95?

    A. Yes. In most cases, you will be able to use your Visual
    Basic modules in Microsoft Excel for Windows 95. However, if
    you create advanced macros that make calls to the Windows API,
    these macros will be affected by the switch to Windows 95. For
    more information about this issue, see 131525.
