Microsoft Excel 2003 Functions and Formulas - Display the Version of Excel

If you share spreadsheets among coworkers, you may edit a spreadsheet in Microsoft Excel 2003, but someone may use a different version of Microsoft Excel when viewing it.

Differences between versions can cause problems, including:

* A spreadsheet printed from one version of Excel may differ in appearance than one printed in another version.

* A formula written for one version of Microsoft Excel may fail when the spreadsheet is loaded into a different version of Excel.

To help diagnose these problems, you can display the currently-running version of Excel inside a spreadsheet using the following formula:

=INFO("release")

For Microsoft Excel 2003, the result is:

11.0
