TeaPot: Create FREE 3D spreadsheets

Our reader Philip Turner has emailed us this great tip and here we are sharing it with you!

I spent 3 hours searching for how to do 3D spreadsheets using MS Excel. I know about multiple sheets, but I wanted something I could visualise, some way of seeing the data in a cube rather than in a series of flat sheets.

I did not find any mainstream spreadsheet that allowed the display of 3 variables at the same time, which was why I needed, x, y and z axes and a 3D spreadsheet. 3D spreadsheets have to be the next BIG market; the only way to manipulate more than 2 variables using mainstream software is to use  a database, there is no visualisation software at all.

I did come across one FREE 3D spreadsheet that appears to be genuinely 3D, but the instructions are somewhat sketchy - Teapot is the name of the program . . . - The download link is at the bottom of that page - VERY compact - works on Windows 7
