1555: Calculator. Hey, welcome back to the MrExcel netcast. I’m Bill Jelen. This is a special Sunday edition, and this

has nothing to do with Excel. I was in the calculator today and I thought

it was kind of funny that they had Help for a calculator. I mean, it’s a calculator, right. But I was amazed when I read Help; what is

actually in here, this is crazy. It’s a regular calculator, it’s a scientific

calculator, it’s a hexadecimal calculator. Oh my gosh, back in the days when I was working

in IT and COBOL and hex dumps in the middle of the night to try and figure out what was

going on. Mike Girvin will love this: it’s a statistics

calculator and — and all of the stuff down here at the bottom; unit conversion. Alright, so, you know, temperature: you’re

up in Toronto and it’s 20 degrees Celsius, and you want to convert that to degrees Fahrenheit–

68. All these things that the Convert function

does, and more. Plus– come over here, View; Date calculation. So from, let’s say: 1965, 2, 17, until today;

calculate. That means I’ve been alive 47 years, 2 months,

1 week, 4 days; or 17237 days. Or even a whole bunch of Worksheets here,

like Mortgage, Vehicle lease, Fuel economy– in both Imperial and metric. All of this stuff in that calculator, which

is just one button click away on most keyboards; so, hey, check it out next time you’re in

calculator. There is a whole lot there; more than just

the usual standard stuff. Oh well, hey, I want to thank you for stopping

by. See you next time for another netcast from

MrExcel.
