In this book, Norman Lawrence starts with using Schema2 as a standard spreadsheet application - formatting data, formulae and functions, matrix operations and plotting graphs, plus handling Excel files.

Schema2s real power lies with its macros, written in a BBC Basic-like language. Once you have mastered macros with the help of numerous examples provided, you are at once extending the Schema2 software to do many things in many fields business, engineering, commerce, maths and teaching to name a few.

The appendices are a concise reference for the styles, effects, functions and macros.
