Join Simon Allardice for an in-depth discussion in this video Using Excel Services, part of SharePoint 2010 Essential Training.
Excel Services is a feature of SharePoint Enterprise and it's all about getting…workbooks to be viewed in a browser.…Now you might be thinking, "well, hang on a second, haven't we done this already?"…I mean after all, very early on, we talked about the idea of going into a…document library and being able to select a document like an Excel workbook, and…click View in Browser or Edit in Browser.…Well, here what we've been using is the Microsoft Excel Web application, part…of the Office Web Apps, which is an add-on for SharePoint.…
This is as much as possible trying to replicate Excel in the browser.…So we can even edit an Excel document, see the whole thing, make a change to it,…save it back into that document library.…That is the Excel Web application, and that's very, very different from Excel Services.…Excel Services is more of a business intelligence feature.…It's not about having multiple people save and edit a workbook in a document library.…We can already do that.…
We don't need SharePoint Server Enterprise Edition for that.…

Q: In the "Adding a user to a site" movie, the instructor shows how to add a user to SharePoint and demonstrates by adding a user named “gini.” But gini is already set up and recognized by SharePoint. What if I have no users set yet? How can I add someone?
A: SharePoint doesn't store a separate user database; it wants to be pointed to an existing source of users, like Active Directory. If you don't have that, you need to first add your new users as local accounts on the Windows box you installed SharePoint on. Only then will you be able to give them permission on a SharePoint site.
