I first started using Lotus123, and WordPerfect on an IBM /os/2 PC
compatible machine in the late 1980's.

Unfortunately, some people like to use Excel instead of a DB like mySQL,
postgreSQL, noSQL, or SQL lite.

They also like to use Excel instead of R, SAS, And SPSS for statistical
analysis.

Below are some resources showing how bad EXCEL is for statistical analysis.

Most the time, a LaTeX, R, SQL lite solution is better than using EXCEL.

Your mileage may vary, here are some resources for your perusal
