Test on Excel 2007 Basics

I have an Excel 2003 file that uses the range names "Qtr1", "Qtr2" and "Qtr3". Why does my file produce incorrect results in Excel 2007?

The range A2:C12 has consistent cell background and font formatting across all cells. Why do some cells appear different?

When you change the color scheme in Excel 2007, what will be affected?

What do these little green icons on the Excel Recent Documents list menu mean?

The headings for columns A, B and C have been changed. How has this been done?

(i) Why do these dots show in the Name Box and (ii) what can you do about it?

Why is there such a big gap between the Ribbon and Excel cells?

What has happened to Excel?

The Developer Ribbon is hidden by default. Where would you go to make it visible?

What formula would you enter in B16 to show the total for just the person selected on only the date entered?


There are 10 questions in test, all related to Excel 2007 basic level. For your own benefit, try to complete the exam with Excel (and its online help) closed.

Even if you don't know the answers, have a guess anyway ... we'll tell you all the answers anyway, and you might learn something!



WTH? The last question doesn't even make sense to me. this particular test was confusing and weird.
