I am looking for some documentation that describes the differences between Microsoft Excel standard and Excel Professional. Is the code for both of these products the same? Or are there subtle differences?

according to Microsoft there is no difference between both if you look at Excel only (except some cloud stuff which is only avaiable in Pro and Licensing).

The difference is between the office suites, as the standard suite does not have Access and some other programs which will be provided by the Pro Suite only.

The key distinction between the two is their software applications. The Office Standard has Outlook, Powerpoint, Excel and Word only. While Office Professional has Access, Excel, Powerpoint, Publisher, Word and Outlook with Business Contact Manger. The Access includes a library of database templates for most common business processes and improved tools to filter, sort, and group data While the Publisher helps you publish a wide range of marketing publications for e-mail, web, and also, for printing.
