Re: Advantages & Disadvantages of MS Excel? [URGENT]
Although I personally like EXCEL very much I'm going to stretch a bit and tell you what I feel are it's disadvantages. So RB - you don't need to debate with me about what I'm saying
I find it very frustrating to deal with printing a spreadsheet that is too wide for the paper - granted it can be done but not in a very intuitive way. Setting PRINT AREA's and FIT TO PAPER are not easily accessible.
I find that although it's very liberal in how it deals with datatypes of columns - it can truly make a mess of data.
Cutting, pasting, inserting and removing rows or columns could be stronger in the way that formula's might be stretched to include these new rows or columns. I find that it's painful now if you need to perform tasks like this in a complex spreadsheet.
It is such a huge and complex product - has so much functionality - that to become an expert in it's use is nearly a full time job. That's both an advantage and disadvantage.
