Nevin Berger, MIchael Arent, Jonathan Arnowitz, and Fred Sampson have
a new book out:

Berger, N., Arent, M., Arnowitz, J., Sampson, F. (2009) Effective
prototyping with Excel: A practical handbook for developers and
designers. Amsterdam: Morgan Kaufmann.

Excel is not often mentioned as a prototyping tool in the
UX/Interaction design community, but it can be a powerful tool for
generating active forms, wireframes with links, and medium or
high-fidelity prototypes. Using Excel for prototyping can be tricky
because you have a graphics layer and a spreadsheet layer, but this
book provides practical advice about how to make use of both the
graphics and the calculation features in Excel.

Thanks for this Chauncey. It is an interesting concept...especially when
trying to communicate with various audiences participating in design within
a corporate enterprise.
