Update: Survey closed, Results posted
This quick and dirty survey has been closed. Thanks to all who participated. Results will be posted in the near future. In addition, a newer and better version of the survey will be/has been posted at New Survey: What Spreadsheet Programs Do You Use?
The original survey (shown below) allowed one response each for version of Excel used at work and home. This ignores those who use multiple versions, for example, developers who need too make sure their spreadsheets will work on any version of Excel.
My main intention in this survey was to get an idea of how many Excel users have upgraded to “New” versions (2007 and 2010), and how many are still using the “Classic” versions (1997 through 2003). The following chart shows my findings.
So about 86% of users have upgraded, while 14% are staying pat. The percentage was almost identical for usage at work and at home. I’m not sure if I’m surprised.
A handful of respondents entered multiple versions into the “Other” boxes in the survey; if these responses included both Classic and New, I didn’t count them. The follow-up survey will try to capture this usage more accurately.
