Building Nested Data Types in Excel

Chris Webb shows off a feature:

A year ago support for nested data types in Excel was announced on the Excel blog, but the announcement didn’t have much detail about what nested data types are and the docs are quite vague too. I was recently asked how to create a nested data type and while it turns out to be quite easy, I thought it would be good to write a short post showing how to do it.

I came into this prepared to cringe, but it’s actually pretty cool insamuch as you’re using Excel as a UI for business work. And, let’s be honest, Excel is still the most common UI for business work out there.
