Excel workbooks usually are saved in a fi le format called Microsoft Excel Workbook . A
fi le saved in the Microsoft Excel Workbook fi le format has a fi le extension of xlsx . A fi le
extension , which usually is three or four characters in length, is used by Windows Vista
to classify fi les by application. By default, you do not see the fi le extensions when you use
the Save As or Open dialog boxes, but the fi le extensions are appended to the fi le name
and separated by a period. Excel allows you to save a workbook in more than 30 different
fi le formats, so that the data can be transferred to other applications easily. Table 5–6 summa-
rizes the more popular fi le formats available in Excel via the ‘Save as type’ box in the Save
As dialog box.
