excel Task pane

Excel 2002 introduced a new UI element known as the task pane. This multipurpose user interface element is normally docked on the right side of Excel’s window (but you can drag it anywhere). The task pane is used for a variety of purposes, including displaying the Office Clipboard,
displaying a pivot table field list, inserting clipart, providing research assistance, and mapping
eXtensible Markup Language (XML) data. Figure 2-13 shows the Clip Art task pane.
