The Macintosh Business Unit at Microsoft (Mac BU) has offered up its Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac “Sneak Peak” #3 on its Web site. This update focuses on Ledger Sheets, which harnesses the power of Excel by making it simple to handle common financial management tasks with the help of pre-formulated cells. Accessible from the Elements Gallery, it streamlines tasks for those who aren’t Excel wizards while adding an element of convenience for those proficient in Excel. Home and small business users can easily balance checkbooks, track accounts or manage investment portfolios without having to fuss with formulas. Biweekly updates will be offered about new additions and improvements to Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac as it moves closer to its release in December.
