    1. Microsoft Excel, Professor Excel Research and Google.

      For which one in particular? Most facts you can easily see in Excel yourself. Others have sources in the left bottom corner.

      1. Hi again,
        For instance, one of the facts is about more than 30,000,000 lines of code (which code ? C++, or other ?). Some sources that I found on Internet refer to this number of lines, but this is for entire Office suite, not just for Excel alone, especially because some code is for sure shared between various elements of Office suite. What would be your opinion, then ? Thank you in advance !
