For working with piles of numbers you usually need a spreadsheet program. Such a program is designed to make it easy to crunch a bunch of numbers into usable results by calculating total and averages, or using a complex formula to analyze the numbers.
Excel 2007 and 2010 use a different style of interface than older versions of Excel. They put controls for the most common actions on ribbon tabs instead of toolbars.
