Excel 2013

EE Pros,

Do all Workbooks/Worksheets you write for Excel 2010 work in Excel 2013 without modification?  Is 2013 really worth the extra money?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Anything you created in 2010 should work fine in 2013.

2013 does have its drawbacks, so unless you need it I recommend not to upgrade.
