Excel is used by many people…
- It is “easy-to-use”
- Results can be quickly “massaged”
- Presentation Ready (just because data is pretty doesn’t make it better)
- that’s a problem.
Excel generally lacks the structured data rules, validation and controls found in databases. There may even be temptations to exclude data that just looks “bad”. How often has data been scrambled by the incorrectly sorting columns?
Some studies suggest 90% of Excel spreadsheets contain errors since there few data validation controls, limited quality control, and no audit trails.
