Municipal Support Tool for Greenhouse Gas Mitigation: Vehicles (Poster, text only)

Abstract :In order for the US to effectively mitigate Greenhouse gas(GHG) emissions, governments at all levels must initiate reduction plans.

Excel and its backward compatibility

Backward compatibility is the ability for a new iteration of a program (or any piece of hardware) to handle some older variation of an input. For excel, this is important as several versions of excel exist.

Given that, it is highly important to ensure that problems are minimized when dealing with different versions of excel than your own.
