MacBU team announced the release of the new “Solver for Excel for Mac 2011”. For those who aren’t familiar, Solver is a what-if analysis tool “on steroids” that you can use to find profit-maximizing or risk-minimizing solutions, by automatically adjusting multiple input cells.
Solver has been a unique and powerful add-in for Excel in Office for Mac and Windows since 1990 — but it briefly disappeared from Excel 2008 for Mac, due to absence of VBA.
The new Solver, like Excel for Mac 2011, is greatly enhanced over its predecessor, and it offers functional parity — and full compatibility — with Solver for Excel 2010, which was also significantly enhanced over earlier Solver versions for Windows. It has essentially all the features of Premium Solver for Education, a Frontline Systems product that has been bundled with more than 35 textbooks and widely used in MBA education.
Here’s a look at the new Solver for Mac layout:
