Data Tables in Microsoft Excel 2008

Data Tables let you see how the results of a formula change as its underlying variables change. After entering data, select the entire table and choose Data > Table. Then tell Excel which row input cell and column input cells you want the table to use. Finally, click OK. Excel will crunch the numbers and present a new Data Table.

I've been running my Power Macintosh 8100/80 since setting it up Thursday. My general impression is that everything is fast, but since I'm comparing the new machine with my unaccelerated Macintosh IIci, that's not surprising. What is surprising is that Eudora grabs mail much faster over my 14,400 bps modem connection using MacPPP. I had assumed that the modem connection was the bottleneck, and it probably is now.

I've found only one conflict so far on the Power Macintosh. I back up using Retrospect 2.0Bi (which came bundled with my DAT drive). Retrospect freezes several minutes into a backup run if Virtual Memory is active. I have destroyed two storage sets that way, although I've since rebuilt them. Retrospect seems perfectly happy with Virtual Memory turned off, whether or not the Power Mac's Modern Memory Manager is turned on. [We weren't able to discuss this with Dantz before deadline but felt that it was worth warning people to prevent backup problems during this week. We hope to have more next issue. Also note that Dantz is working on a PowerPC-native version of Retrospect that will undoubtedly fix any such problems. -Adam]
