It is Easter time again. It has been our tradition to hide some Easter eggs so that you have fun discovering them. I usually hide the eggs in the blog post. But this year, I went one more step and created an Excel file with 3 hidden Easter eggs.
Click here to download the Easter eggs file.
Go ahead and find the eggs. I am sure you will love them 🙂
If you are in mood for more adventure, checkout the Easter eggs from 2009, 2010 & 2011.

Just wanted to say a great big thank you for the fun that this has brought me whilst working on a very quiet reception desk. Not only that but the animated chart gave me the ability to put something together and 'wow' my colleagues. They now think i'm a GOD!
So, thanks for the additional kudos points Chandoo and Happy Easter.
Oh my God. The animated chart just blew my mind.
Chandoo, thank you so much!

Yes, they're Excel charts
Cute. Have an Excel-lent holiday. Sorry people. I just couldn't resist that.
@Richard. Mate, that was oeuful! Easter's no yolk. I think it vitell-us Eggcel practitioners keep it together, no cracking up. Now, consider yourself warned, I don't want a roe about it.
I have been looking for the animated chart but can't find it!
I couldnt find animated chart... 🙁
Neither can I.

found Sheet0, but no chart!?!
found the 'fitness secret'... lol.... who needs gyms/weights!!?
Nevermind, I got it! 😉

Nice one. Well hidden easter eggs. 🙂
Have a happy easter!
Not able to understand the meaning of 3 eggs in this file.... I found:
1. Sheet0, but no animated chart,
2. Fitness secret, but I can't use the same secret bcoz beautiful little ones are with u.
3. Illustration Tip, I will surely use this one at least 🙂
It's maybe bcoz I don't understand the "Custom cell format"....
;;"Go to cell A1000000";"Go to C899876"
Won't be able to make Omelette of this egg unless I'm taught 🙁
Go to cell A1000000. If I give any more clues, I will be making the omelette for you.
hahaha thx chandoo from past 5 minutes I'm already searching for other 8 kind of people...
1. could not find the animated chart at all, unhid sheet 0, but no dice.
2. found a warning about clicking(Facebook one) and the joke on binary
3. figured out the illustration tip.
Do make the omelette for us, please.

Thank you for animated chart.
How did you find the animated chart!?
Well I am confused 🙁
I found following:
1. sheet0 with comments abt animated chart, but not able to find one.
2. found your link for fitness secret ... saw your the photo.. nice way to keep up fitness.
3. custom format has 3 links (hints) checked all three
4. about people and binary
5. text box with comment on facebook password
6. tip on paper cut illutstration
7. understood how you make "something fishy" to show goto to cxx using custom format.
Where is the animated chart? Are you referring to the same chart about 3 ninja story graph?
I am going nuts :(((((
Try applying the lesson/trick from #3 to #1.
Struggled for a while with the animated chart untilI realised I was looking at the wrong format!! Thanks for adding a bit more fun to Easter.
I have spent 2 minutes on the 2 images (binary-fitness and drawing tip) but can't find the animated chart. I've only seen the writing on Sheet0 and I have checked the same cells as in the other easter eggs. I wonder about the 2 links that are in the custom formats though, I haven't found what they are for yet...
Can't find the chart.. 🙁
I didn't get it.. ! Please help
I was also expecting some excel comparison chart would be there somewhere.... I also didn't found any such chart, but I believe this is is not the XY chart which chandoo is talking here. But I'm sure there's no such chart on the hidden Sheet0.
I'm still wondering about the Custom Cell format:
Cell A1 in Sheet 2 is saying goto C899876, now go there and check. , I don't know what is that, but.... the format of cell A1 also have a reference to cell A1000000, now go there also n have a look. What exctly is going on in there...... ;;"gotoA1000000";"gotoC899876"
i finally found
i)the animated chart
ii)exercise tip ~ same as mine 🙂 except i have three of them!
iii) looooove the paper-cut tip!!!!!!!
having fun looking for the eggs..:)
thanks a bunch!
Happy easter to you and your family
