I could have used this information about a year ago, when I tried to make 
Excel do the work of a graphing program.  I found that I could get it to fit 
sets of data using the solver function, but I never got the error bars 
working.  As a result I switched to Origin for Windows for fitting and 
plotting and it has been able to take everything we've thrown at it.  The 
program has a few quirks, but for our work, it was much better and faster than 
SigmaPlot for DOS.  I wonder if the windows version is any faster?
