About

mvp_logo.pngExcel Hero is a website and blog run by Microsoft Excel MVP, Daniel Ferry.

The point of the sites is to give you the inspiration and knowledge to become an Excel Hero in your workplace. As a tool, Excel is not used anywhere near its potential by 99.999% of its users.

If you are reading my blog for the first time, may I suggest you start with all of my January 2010 posts. They should give you an idea of my direction and focus.

Some say I like to stretch what Excel can do. Instead, I feel that I like to stretch what the average user "thinks" Excel can do.

So who am I? I'm a programmer with 28 years of experience. I specialized in VB programs for a very long time and in the last several years have focused intensely on JavaScript, CSS, and HTML, which funny enough I do not use on this site and blog (I wanted to learn MovableType and thus far have been faithful to it. However, since the management of spam on MovableType has consumed way too much of my time lately, I am moving this blog to Wordpress.

I cut my Excel teeth on very early versions in the early 1990s. Before that I used Lotus123. I am completely self taught in the Excel arena and gained most of my knowledge while creating systems to run a large logistics company that I managed for 15 years. I've had hundreds of clients and successfully completed thousands of projects since.

To this day, I earn my living as a professional freelance developer, and am usually interested in looking at new projects.

I live in the mountains of California and can be reached at:

Right now I am gearing up to start a one-of-a-kind training program called Excel Hero Academy. If you like my work and want to learn how to do it yourself, please look into the academy.
