Perfect for Advanced Users!
In the section where I work, everyone uses Excel, but outside of entering data and applying a couple of formulas / formats, they are generally clueless as to Excel 97's power. Just two weeks of toying with different things listed in this bible have made me the department guru!
As others have mentioned, talk of VBA is short here, but Walkenbach (a tremendous writer) has a VBA for Excel 2000 book out (not a bible) that looks to cover VBA for Excel 97 as well, so I am looking to purchase that next. Bibles are cool - Wife has the Access Bible, and that one rules, too.

covers a little of everything but leaves out details.
This is a great book if you have a strong foundation in Excel already. I don't, I like a book I can refrence without reading the whole chapter. Not something as simple minded as the Idiot books but a book I can quickly glance through to see what can be done and quick step by step guide.
