I'll look at this again, but I'm almost certain I read it before.
It's not the basic function, it's such things as defining column
width, importing and exporting various kinds of file types and
formats and such. I always could find those things in standard
pull downs--no matter how deep within they were. My best guess is
that once you get in a few layers that screen reading software
does not read all possible choices within the ribbon structure.
I'll give it a go once again--don't recall how many such tutorials
I have read in the past and spent several hours on each one
comparing and testing; here goes again!

No one has ever known exactly where to find "very seldom to
almost never used" functions but did menu searches when there
were menus and ribbon searches when there are ribbons to find
The ribbons are nothing more than a menu in different form.
It's not all that much easier to conduct an exhaustive search
of a multi-level menu than it is to do the same with a ribbon
control, it's just the precise "how" that's different.
How you use them in Excel is no different than how you use them
in any ribbon-driven program. Read the brief "how-to" I wrote
which applies to any ribbon-controlled program in Windows.
It's impossible to get specific unless one is writing a "how-to"
for a single program and even then you'll never cover all the
options available in the various ribbons or menus and the
multiple dialogs that each can spawn.

I need to respect in any way.
