Pros: I have used Microsoft Excel like forever. I like Microsoft because of it's ability to help you organize large chunks of data. After organizing the data, Microsoft Excel can help you make you make visual presentations from the data like graphs, pie charts, pyramids and cones. This kind of graphical presentations are very instrumental in helping you make sense of you data.

Another thing I like about Excel is the mathematical formulas offered by the application. When working with Excel, you don't need a calculator. Excel can help you compute very complex calculations in a matter of seconds. You only need to know to make the most of the formulas. This formulas come in handy especially when you are working with large amounts of data.

I also like the fact that you can use excel pretty well with your phone. I use an android phone and am able to make quick edits using excel without much hustle.

Cons: The problem with Excel is that the application is quite overwhelming. Before you can use Excel in any meaningful way, you need to undergo training. There is so much to learn in excel. The application can be intimidating and it's easy to mess up data if you don't know what you are doing. If you don't know the right formula to use in a specific instance, you will end up with wrong data. Excel can be hard to use if you are just starting out.

Overall: Excel is generally a powerful tool for business. I mean, the things I have been able to do with the application at work. I don't know what I would do without Excel. The alternatives are not as powerful.

Pros: Many people have told us "why do you use Excel if you work with editorial projects, with literature, music, culture and traditions", but, it is the most erroneous concept I have heard in all my life. I say this because in our exponential growth as an editorial line, Microsoft Excel has contributed greatly to strengthen each of our internal processes and the interrelationship with our direct suppliers, customers, general public and internal ordering of the information we are capturing and systematizing.

Thanks to Microsoft Excel we can organize, systematize and file each one of our advances in different types of files organized and defined by compilations, chapters, authors, types of traditions, musical aspects and other typifications defined by all our team. Currently we have a large database where we also host our suppliers, trusted bookstores, potential customers and our greatest treasure, the public that attends each of our activities, book baptisms, musical and artistic presentations. Excel brilliantly combines organizational practicality with information exposure, making it an absolutely necessary software for the growth of our editorial line.

Cons: As databases grow, it is important to diversify the management of these databases among the different members of our team, because when we have to hire new staff, it is difficult for them to understand precisely each of the elements described in the database. Sometimes we have had to make introductory courses to the staff only to understand the composition of each of our databases.

Overall: In very simple words, Excel is a market pioneer in offering database services. Its function is essential and of great value for business growth, it also combines permanent updates that meet the demands of today's market.

Pros: It is more versatile than you can imagine. I use it at work and at home almost every day. I use it for so many tasks that go far beyond what a normal table or spreadsheet program could do. It is my go-to place for creating tables, calendars, lists, rosters, budget charts, food and calorie logs, shopping/grocery lists, and I could go on and on.

Cons: I wish Excel would identify misspelled words within the cells as you are typing. Rather than having to remember to go find the spellchecker and use it each time.

Overall: I think Excel is great and I am not an accountant or bookkeeper!

At work it helps me track open and close dates of events and programs, as well as help keep my budget on track. I even use its Alignment/Orientation function to print the names on graduation certificates. That one is a life saver! I also create calendars with Excel to help me remember reoccurring announcements that are posted only few times each semester, but not always on the same day/date (other calendar tools do not work as well for this).

At home I use Excel to help me organize everything from names on a gift registry to costs and supplies for family birthday parties and Christmas wish/shopping lists.

I use Excel every semester to help me organize the kids hectic school, sports, and activity schedules so we don't leave anyone without a ride or babysitter! (Color coding is especially helpful with this one.)

And now that the oldest is in college and working part-time, I also use Excel to create an easy to read (and follow) college class and work schedule that I post on the fridge and family bulletin board so we all know when and where he is M-F (so we aren't bugging him if he is in class or at work).

Believe it or not, I even use it to help me and my family track such things as household tasks/duties and even which new Fall premiers are airing first so we don't forget to set up the DVR. I use it literally every day.

Pros: To begin with, I must disclose that I have been using Microsoft Excel for more than six years +. In the midst of Microsoft Office suite, Excel is my favorite solution which has helped me to excel and is yet to do a lot. What I like about Microsoft Excel is that it is easy to install, setup, and reset up even with a little knowledge. Due to that, it is not necessarily to get comprehensive training in order to be a pro- since there is tons of tutorials in the entire internet. Personally, I used Excel in campus to solve some calculations, mainly repetitive calculations since it has all the tools for such capabilities. Nowadays, Microsoft Excel is one of the systems that help me to save time and energy since I am able to create, format, and edit spreadsheets. In addition, I like this software since it is available as both on-premise and cloud-based solution. With cloud-based solution or what we call Office 365, it is easy to work from anywhere provided there is stable internet connection.

Cons: Although Microsoft Excel is the most advanced platform for carrying out data entry projects, it gets offered at a higher license cost per user. To make it competitive on the market, Microsoft should ensure that it increase the number of individuals that can use one account. Alternatively, Microsoft can reduce the total cost of getting a genuine Microsoft Excel. By doing that, they will be in a better situation to entice a lot of prospective customers, especially small businesspersons. Finally, the fact that Microsoft Excel is not available on its own is among the issues that I like least about it.

Overall: We have been able to solve a lot of business problems with Microsoft Excel. Below are some of the obstacles that we are able to overcome at workstation.

1. Financial reporting

2. Creating appealing spreadsheets

3. Carrying out data entry projects

4. Realization of arithmetic operations- Formulas on this software help us in such areas.

5. Statistical sampling

Finally, I would highly recommend Microsoft Excel to all those individuals that are looking to save time and energy while carrying out some vital business operations like financial reporting.

Pros: Microsoft Excel is an easy-to-use platform since it has a straightforward interface. For that reason, it is easy to set-up this software for the capabilities that will suit the needs of any organization. I like Microsoft Excel since it has all the features for small to large financial reporting. The organization that I am working for has used MS Excel as their financial reporting tool for more than six years now. Personally, I incorporate this platform to analyze large spreadsheets with many rows and columns. Ever since I started using Microsoft Excel financial reporting has never been daunting. Additionally, I like Microsoft Excel since it is available both as cloud-based solution and on-premise. With cloud-based solution, I am able to carry out significant business functions from anywhere, provided there is a stable cloud computing.

Cons: My only problem is on pricing. The license price cost per user is extremely high. To make this platform competitive on the market, Microsoft need to make sure that it reduce the valuation of getting genuine Microsoft Excel version whether cloud-based or on-premise. Also, I do not like the fact that Microsoft Excel comes as part of Microsoft Office, Microsoft, need to make sure that they produce Microsoft Excel on its own.

Overall: Microsoft Excel has the features that enables our business to perform some vital business functions such as financial reporting. This platform makes work easier since it performs tasks that could not be handled in a day by workforce. That way, we are better off to save teams time and effort while carrying out some essential obligations such as payroll and financial reporting.

Pros: It is a very practical spreadsheet that can be used for countless tasks and areas of application such as audits, accounting, finance, mathematics, education, research, among others, which allows to empty data of various types that form a database that can be edit with the use of many formulas from the simplest to the most complex to execute calculations on data that in turn analyzes it to determine particular amounts that give answers to questions, mediating numerical results, graphs, tables, among others. Similarly Excell that the spreadsheet can be customized according to the tastes of who uses it, and according to the end of the information that is expected to meet in order to meet specific needs. It also allows multiple spreadsheets to be handled in a single file, which even gives the tools to connect them together. At the time of printing allows to hide information that is considered not relevant to display, even if the information from a previous spreadsheet is required, it can be copied to another sheet to work on it, leaving the original intact. Another function that is very good that generate database in my case education for student notes, and allows you to create macros to show only a case of particular notes (note of a student) and can even connect with the presentation of student behavior through graphs, without the need to show all the results of the database.

.

Cons: Particularly I do not have to object to the use of this tool, the times that I have presented some flaw is because I have not been configured for Windows installations are done automatically, a situation that has been corrected automatically at the end of the update.

Overall: The Excel is a tool of frequent use, as a teacher it allows me to take a history of attendance, grades, make previous and final notes, it is like a kind of a pre-record, also used it to analyze the behavior of the students in a particular way during the Semester development. As a researcher, he used it to empty the data and put together a base that allows the application of formulas to determine particular statistical aspects such as fashion, coefficients, variances and covariances, estimates, frequencies, intervals, means, medians, chi-square, correlation, others. It also allows to edit tables and graphs for the presentation of data and results. I have also used it to assemble accounting books and make purely financial calculations.

Pros: It is extremely powerful, fast and reliable software for medium to large scale financial reporting. My personal experience with this software is a testimony of this statement. I have worked for years in (large scale) financial reporting, the position is called financial controller of car manufacturer which produces 500,000 cars per year. Our financial reporting software for the past 5 years has been MS Excel and to give you an idea of the scale, we use very large spreadsheets (100 sheets, with a couple of thousand used rows and hundreds of columns, linked to 30-40 files with a large VBA codes in them) we even had to migrate from .xlsm to .xlsb to speed up the process. We've integrated it with SAP (ERP software) and work flawlessly and fast, we have even developed our own MS Excel in house Add-ons.

It is easy to track errors and formulas, you can combine Boolean conditions easily with the use of sum-product, lookup and indexing functions, it even has an optimisation solver embedded (simplex, non-linear and integer). The regression tools are at the level of specific data analysis software.

But the best part of it is that many people have MS Excel installed in their computer which makes it extremely convenient and easy to share with anyone. I can only tell that by far is the best software (in general) I've ever used. I simply love it (as you can tell).

Disclaimer: I've no longer work as a controller, I've moved to research and I still used it every day.

Cons: When you are moving the same file in different devices with different display resolutions, sometimes it gets a bit messy with graphs losing their proportions. Also a big drawback of some of their online and mobile device versions is that those are not very well integrated with "complex" VBA code.

Overall: The amount of work we handled could only be done by this software, we tried other alternatives and nothing worked, especially at the amazing speed of MS Excel. Many people have this software which makes it easy to share and collaborate. That is the reason why this software is the standard in industry.

Pros: Excel is a wonderful tool offered by Microsoft to simplify life for all of us who work with numbers, it has a great variety of formulas that according to what we need we can use it, with excel I have been able to simplify a large database in just what I need either inserting a table or a dynamic table, I can also represent in graphics some information that requires presenting to a third party, otherwise if you only need to see an information you can use the filters that allows you to filter the information by numbers, some keyword, the beginning of a sentence, colors among others its use is very relevant, it is an excellent tool if we learn to know it is not at all complicated and with its daily use we can get to know it better

Cons: The difficulty I feel in excel is that if you want to get more out of it you should take a basic course at least to start learning now if what you want is to manage macros you should know programming, not anyone can perform macros in excel is necessary previous knowledge, another against would be that depending on the amount of information handled the program can become a bit slow and heavy in the PC, you have to be aware because sometimes the option of automatic formulas is deactivated and passed to manual and therefore, if you add new numbers or numbers, these are not updated, but excel is usually great for your daily use

Overall: It has helped me in my daily work because it helps me to present the amounts of projects by companies of large macros to something easier and simplified is really recommended because the large number of tools they offer we can adapt to our needs

Pros: Where to begin with Excel? - Well, it's a spreadsheet software package that has been around for decades, the ubiquitous method of making numbers do the work on a computer. Need to track your shares? got it, want to keep a list of your staff's birthdays? no problem, want to calculate your mortgage repayments? doddle.

There is literally nothing that cannot be achieved with Excel, it is a flawless masterpiece of computer science design.

If you ever reach a point where Excel cannot do something you want it to, you can learn the Visual Basic language and that opens up a whole other world of scripting possibilities.

As a software development team, we pretty much use Excel on a daily basis, ideas, calculations, lists, anything can be done with this software. It is the backbone of our entire business and we simply couldn't live without it.

Over the years the developers have added more and more features to keep it up to date, (it can link with live databases, do pivot tables, filter lists and results, and infinitely more) - if you ever find something Excel can't do, then it simply can't be done.

Cons: Our only problem with Excel nowadays is that the Google Sheets application "Does sharing better", with the google alternative we can simultaneously online edit Excel sheets on a live basis, for free, this is a whole new world of possibilities. However the google sheets application doesn't have the same functions (yet) that make Excel so powerful, (the scripting language, is nice, but requires much more security checking) -

I think the years of excel dominance are under threat from Googles new upstart, but it will take years and years before we finally click the excel uninstall button. Everything we do is in .xls format and we like it being "locally stored" on our servers and PC's.

Overall: Our entire business is built upon our use Excel, we use it multiple times daily for literally any type of purpose you can imagine. There isn't anything that comes close to this software.

Pros: Within the functions that I currently perform in my work, summarized in designing and analyzing indicators associated with administrative variables and prevention, Microsoft Excel is irreplaceable software. Excel is an old friend, he has been with me since my beginnings of higher education and now he does it in my work, he is a vital tool for my functions and that is why I summarize his benefits:

In the first instance, it is an excellent database manager, which is complemented with multiple tools that simplify the elaboration and analysis of administrative indicators. These factors are necessary to perform a more precise and fast work.

The linking of these indicators with different types of graphics summarizes a fascinating analytical and expository work, allowing not only to analyze indicators but to transmit them to my superiors.

It also allows me to export this data to other software, diversifying my possibilities of analyzing indicators and their exposure.

It has an excellent taskbar, combined with an exquisite presentation, which facilitates the work.

Cons: Despite its complexity when it comes to familiarize with the software, I have no objection or criticism in relation to it, since everything is usual. When you get used to the software, using it is much easier

Overall: Microsoft has done an incredible task, not only creating quality software such as Excel, but striving permanently in their updates to make it more and more complete, leaving the competition behind, leaving Excel as a pioneering program in terms of databases are concerned.

Excel is the blessing of the evaluators and designers of indicators.

Pros: Has integrated plotting routines and is very easy to use with math functions performed on cells. Can also be used for organizing non numeric inputs too. Has several choices on types of plots that can be selected in order to fit the data type be used. Once data is inputted analysis is easy to implement. Using formulas is also easy on all of the data or any portion of the data, all you have to do is select the portion of the data you want the formula to act on. If you have trouble finding the ways to use the formula or selecting how to input the formula you can just do a search online for the question you have on how to implement it. It's that easy, since Excel is so widely used. It is also great for inputting data from other software programs in various formats. Also it is easy to copy and paste the charts and plots into other software programs which makes it easy to back up the point you are making in any report or research you are generating.

Cons: Can be a little hard to format types of data at times since Excel wants to truncate leading and trailing zeros in numbers inputted. Some programs will not allow you to copy and paste charts or graphs into them but the list of programs that will not allow this is short. Also some programs have certain data formats that are not compatible with with Excel data formats , this is not a big deal though as most data can be reformatted for Excel to accept with a little effort. Also the plotting routines are a bit inflexible at times and it can be frustrating when you want display your data in a certain way.

Overall: Easy to keep your data in an organized way for quick analysis.

Pros: There's a reason Excel is referred to as the industry standard spreadsheet software. This extraordinarily versatile software can perform basic operations like organizing data into meaningful ways, and can also perform more advanced operations like taking mass data and converting it into a visual to ease comprehension. In addition, Excel can perform sophisticated financial and mathematical tasks, reducing labor costs and costly arithmetic mistakes.

Cons: Unless you pursued training or instruction, you probably will not know how to perform more advanced functions within the software from day one. There are sophisticated equations and formulas you can embed into workbooks, and just one slip of a keystroke can render these automatic formulas useless if you do not know your way around the software. Basic use is relatively intuitive, but more advanced and powerful use should be preceded with formal instruction. Since Microsoft is such a large organization, quickly getting in touch with a customer service representative is not likely to happen. Instead, most support is delivered via online Q&A portals, which may not provide timely enough support depending on the user, organization, and situation at hand.

Overall: Excel allows me to organize a lot of data into one place easily and quickly. When I need to involve data that is more number-based, Excel allows me to perform any mathematical function necessary to manipulate the data the way I need to for the given situation. Overall, Excel saves me a lot of time, headaches, and hassle, because so many people can use it at a level proficient enough for most needs.

Pros: What I like most about Excel is the ability to organize large amounts of data in spreadsheets and charts. With organized data, it is much easier to analyze, especially when it is used to create graphs and other visual data representations. In second place, the thing that I like most is that Excel processes data quickly, making mass calculations much easier than solving them on your own with a calculator. Excel also has formulas and equations that are used to quickly calculate simple and complex equations using large amounts of data.

and finally, Excel is considered the standard for spreadsheet software and, for that reason, it enjoys support on almost all platforms, including smartphones and tablets. Most other spreadsheet programs also support importing Excel sheets into their original formats and exporting their own spreadsheets as Excel files.

Cons: One of the disadvantages according to my opinion is that if it is true that almost anyone can choose Excel and start using it, getting the maximum benefit from its features requires a lot of practice. People who ignore the Excel syntax can also find errors in calculations and call other functions that have nothing to do with what you want. Second of the disadvantages I think that although Excel's automatic calculation functions simplify most of the calculations on a larger scale it is also true that Excel has no means to verify human errors during data entry, which means that Incorrect information can damage all results and finally entering data manually in Excel can take a long time, mainly if you have a lot of data to enter. The amount of time it takes to enter data manually can be quite long.

Overall: I have benefited a lot from the use of excel from the university as well as the work environment. In the university on repeated occasions I have had to resort to the use of excel to quantify data obtained in the field for certain jobs among other things and in the field of work has certainly been very useful for the counting of sales, prices, costs, losses among other data that must be constantly updated by the company for which I work. Without a doubt, it is a software of excellence that with each passing year becomes more useful and easier to use, more user friendly. If it would be convenient that the support and the documentation of the same one was a little more simple to understand for those people who just begin to use it.

Pros: I've used excel since undergrad years, and now that I am taking my JD, I am still using it! It makes our lives easier by sorting things and coming up with better solutions that make data crunching easier.

I also use excel at work. In the recruitment field, we use it to populate lifelong and work email addresses. We have devised a formula that only needs to fill a few details, and all possible emails will already show - this makes email guessing better, faster and stronger!

My partner who is a workforce manager told me that they are using this tool to make their workforce planning comfortable with if functions, pivots, and macros which is an extensive knowledge of using excel.

However, even a newbie in using the excel can benefit a lot with using this application since some sort, filter and ribbon functions are already self-explanatory and are readily accessible with the new update we got from Microsoft 360!

I am very pleased with Microsoft, and its products and excel is one of the best things that continue to innovate as we ramp up in advancement!

Cons: Well, everything is good with this application. I have subscribed to the Microsoft 365 which is a bundle of all Microsoft offices and also a drive. We use it for business,. It looks costly, and that is the least thing I like about this software. However, since it is already a bundle of everything I would need to run a business, I think it is just!

Overall: This is a great tool for those data crunchers out there! No one, I think, will be able to crunch data without the help of Excel!

Pros: Use the conditional format

Excel users can format their spreadsheets using different color tones, bold and italic, to differentiate between the columns and bring the most important data to the front. This function can be useful in the presentation of accounting information, such as the benefit before taxes and the balance that will be transferred by the company. Users can select an appropriate color scheme using the quick analysis button, and then by using the Format tab.

Help identify trends

When presenting the data in the form of tables or graphs, it may be useful to include middle lines, which explicitly detail the key trends that emerge from the information. This can help demonstrate key points to other users in a direct way - for example, an executive from a different department during a board meeting. Excel allows trend lines to extend beyond the graph, to provide predictions of activity in the future - and such forecasts can help companies develop their future strategy.

Collect data

Excel can be used to carry information from different files and documents together, so it exists in one place. As well as raw data and information from other spreadsheets, it is possible to import text and images. Other objects can be added using the Insert tab, spreadsheets or they can be added to the file.

Cons: Disadvantages of Excel

Some people consider graphics insufficient or of poor quality

It is a payment program that does not have an affordable price available to everyone

It is a program unable to handle dates before 1990

Information may be lost when the application is divided into too many files

Files take up a lot of space

Viruses can be attached to an Excel file through macros

It is not an application of which one can be self-taught, but in general courses are needed to be able to get the necessary party

It is not useful at the domestic level

Does not work to be customized with financial subsets

Each operation must be entered manually

It requires, for your needs, a powerful computer and in good condition

Only compatible with Windows and Mac

It usually presents unexpected errors that cause the program to close abruptly and unrecoverable data is lost

Overall: Drawing graphics quickly and easily

Printing facilities being possible to preview the print on screen. You can print vertically and horizontally

Files can be protected with a password for greater security

Manage headers and footers, titles, margins, automatic numbering of pages, automatic insertion of date and time

Allows manipulating information directly, moving or changing size objects

Allows you to see two or more applications on the screen at the same time

Realization of arithmetic operations with formulas

I use Microsoft Excel a minimum of 5 times a day - it's that integral to my overall functionality.

Pros: There are so many things I live about Microsoft Excel. It is very intuitive in many cases and even makes "suggestions" on some of my tasks. I use Excel is multiple situations, and not just for number crunching as some people might think. Excel is my favorite software for charts and numerical reports, but I also love it for creating logs, lists, forms, graphs, and the list goes on. Microsoft Excel is very good with imported data, like files from software that uses Crystal Reports or similar applications. Excel is also good for creating and manipulating .csv files to export into other applications. I'm not an expert user, but the formulas in Excel are works of art. I can create a decent formula to yield specific information, however I often don't have to do so. Excel has a library of formulas from the simple to the impossible, and everything in between. I like that for simple formulas, I don't have to recreate the wheel - there is already a template for that. When I have trouble working out a formula in my head, there is likely a formula already existing in Excel that will produce the desire result. And when I have something super complicated, or it needs to reference multiple pieces of data on multiple tabs, Excel easily follows the formula to get the exact data needed.

Cons: My least favorite feature of Microsoft Excel is also my most favorite. For all its flexibility and multiple uses, Excel is a very rigid software. By that, I mean that any data introduced into the software that does not fit into very strict parameters (which are admittedly quite expansive), Excel is unable to accommodate or render the expected information. That is true of many programs to some extent, however, Excel's limitations are a bit more noticeable than other software. That said, there are almost always work-arounds to achieve the desired result.

Pros: Mainly it is the most useful spreadsheet I have known, applicable to many areas, allows to perform any type of mathematical operation, whether in the field of engineering, administration, education or daily life, excellent for performing dynamic tables, allows to perform hyperlinks in a simple way, it allows to make multiple deductions with complex functions and insert them in the reports and presentations quickly, Excel also facilitates the work, since it allows filtering data and hiding cells to visualize only what we are interested in, Microsoft Excel is a very efficient, it is one of the best I have used and is indispensable in my professional life, this software has many versatile functions that are worth using.

Cons: One of the disadvantages that I get in this tool is that when activating the license it is necessary to buy it and its price is a little high, on the other hand there are certain functions that can only be done within the same sheet, for example when you want to transpose data, perhaps it would be interesting that it allowed to perform all the functions in different sheets that simplify the user's work.

Overall: Excel has been part of my life for many years, I used it in the student field to create dynamic tables and insert them into my reports, also to perform simulations with more complex calculations. In my professional life has been a fundamental ally, since I use it daily to perform calculations, tables, either for my reports or presentations, to make graphs of different types, whether trend lines, bars or circulars to compare values of different categories, has also been fundamental to perform financial calculations with multiple data, through the use of macros.

Pros: Excel has been from the first day that I use a software of great value for the development of my career as a professional. This software, owned by Microsoft, incorporated into the market an innovative tool that could build a database, and in turn, organize it by rows and columns, in addition to adding additional elements such as tables, graphics of all kinds, summations, mathematical formulas, combination of cells to perform operations, conversion of numbers to accounting currencies, incorporation of information from other software, embedded sheets to the same document and thus work several issues simultaneously, excellent tools for personalization of graphics, tables and bases of data and many other things that only excel can offer the user.

As you can read, Excel has a large number of tools and additions, which for many years have been a pioneering program in the creation of databases and analysis of variables.

Cons: One of the negative aspects that I find in Excel, and that I think makes it a little behind in front of other software, is that it can not be modified in the cloud like other software that does have this option.

Overall: Excel is a software that must not be missing in any company, corporation and institution of the State; its comfortable interface surrounded by many tools to design databases and analyze variables through graphics and tables makes excel a quite complete and functional software to the daily demands of work

Pros: Microsoft excel is one of the most complete software that I have worked with, I use it in different areas such as work and personnel.

Among the positive features that I found from the software, I could highlight:

An excellent spreadsheet to empty data related to any field in general, from work activities such as databases of documents to be added to files, organization and database of letters, files, people served, accounts payable, preparation of files through these databases, among many additional options that it offers.

On the other hand I highlight the possibility of being able to perform mathematical operations in the software, saving me time in the elaboration of formulas and summations. This element is very important since I save a lot of time in my daily tasks.

Cons: In our work we have dual computer environments, that is, we work with ubuntu and with microsoft, presenting a problem with excel, since it is only operative in Macintosh and Windows, that is, we must look for alternative programs to be able to use this software.

Overall: Microsoft and its software have been on the market, for a long time different programs have been useful not only for workspaces, but also for personal, university, school and other tasks.

Microsoft Excel is a pioneer program in the conformation and administration of databases and archives, which has facilitated our work for a long time. I can not imagine my working life without Excel

Pros: Excel is a very helpful software to continue with office work (specially finance related, mathematics). I find it easy to use with the functionalities provided. Comparing old versions and new versions, there is a good change with time other than many office products (Access, Word, Powerpoint etc). Functions are updated and easy to use. Suggestions with keywords are really appreciative and Excel always push me to use it because of it's simplicity and user friendliness. It has also become very attractive with the interface changes comparing to the older versions. Specially the start up page, amazing view.

Cons: As a daily user, I would like to have more graphs options if possible. Existing graphs are common and if the new ones come in good color variations it would be really nice. Sheets are bit tough to align with print views so would like to have an easy option towards it. At least once u made the sheet, an option to align sheet to a preferred page setup. Because once u made the sheet and try to do the changes to print view, it is really hard to do the changes.

Overall: I've been using this since my school period (For more than 10+ years) and now I am working as a project manager, leading company in my country. My entire office is using this software to ease daily tasks and through out years this software benefited me a lot. I am really thankful for the development team and hoping for more updates and better product variations.

Pros: What I like most about Microsoft Excel is that it is easy to install and re-set up. Due to that, with just a little training the user is on a safer side to offer professional budgeting and data entry projects.

This platform has a slick design and simple interface . For that reason, it is straightforward to come up with spreadsheets that meets the needs of the organization. I like this software since it is easy to customize it for any business. Both large and small business can customize Microsoft Excel to suit their requirements. Additionally, the ease of integration with other Microsoft bundles like PowerPoint and Publisher ensures that entrepreneurs of all kinds depicts the brand of their businesses.

Cons: I like everything about Microsoft Excel. So far we have never marked any drawback from the very first day that we implemented this platform. However, to make this software competitive on the market the support should lower the cost estimation for getting Microsoft Excel whether offline or cloud-based version.

Overall: Before we implemented this platform, it was hard to undertake financial and data entry projects. Afterwards, Microsoft Excel implementation came along with many benefits since it has all features that assists in undertaking calculations in our food production industry. For instance, we are now able to create edit and format invoices of farmers at easy and in a convenient way.

Excel is a must for any business or home user!

Pros: Excel is more than just entering data in cells, it is about analyzing the data. Many other systems have data that can be exported into CSV files which can be analyzed in Excel. A person or company can then report on the data. Excel has built-in functions to create formulas to allow everyone to be better. The creation of a VBA macro is an automation of a task, something that perhaps used to take an hour or longer can now be done with the click of a button. I simply love Excel! Dashboards, Pivot Tables, Charts, Tables, and so much more!!!!

Cons: Honestly, there is not much I have found about Excel that I do not like. This software is awesome, especially when used properly. There is a lot to learn, but it is so worth it to take the time to learn. Office computers are often cheap versions, so I usually work in Manual rather than Automatic (this relates to calculations). This prevents Excel from recalculating an entire workbook whenever a cell is changed. Once I have finished making changes I will calculate the workbook. Offices tend not to have the best processors and fully loaded RAM like you may buy for a gaming computer (or an Excel geek) at the house.

Overall: I would love to spend all day in Excel at work! I adore this software! It allows me to analyze the data provided by other systems and provide the dashboards and reports my bosses and managers require.

Pros: the organization that allows you to have with an extensive database, the mathematical calculations that you can do in an organized and exact way, the types of graphs that you can develop to make presentations or balance sheets of any specific topic and, finally, the guarantee and the support offered by a brand like microsoft recognized worldwide. this makes this application one of the most used at the corporate level.

Cons: It is very difficult to learn to use each of its functionalities, for example, the dynamic tables to organize the data you have, making the graphs can be complicated if you did not study previously or did several exercises to complement the knowledge, learn the commands in order to move in a more fluid way in the program, to develop the mathematical functions in its entirety is of an extremely advanced level. the important thing is that once you manage to learn to use each of the functions provided by excel, using it is a great help and easy to do.

Overall:

I think it is one of the most important applications at the corporate level. it has helped me to make big calculations in just seconds and to organize very complex data filtering what really interests me at the moment, it has helped me to present billing reports and to make comparative tables of two variables of my interest. in general terms it is an application that I use a lot and without it my work would be much more complex and exhausting

Pros: I use Excel for my writing submissions. I like to stay organized, so this helps me create my own tables. This is the best tool to use to create tables and for loads of info that you are trying to get organized. I have tried other similar spreadsheet programs and they are not easy for me. The grid of cells that I try to arrange and organize with other programs don't work for me. I like doing stuff fast, but I also like to be precise. I love how I am able to add in everything I need with the Excel program. I love doing data entry with Excel as well. When I send Excel spreadsheets with my information into each area of Excel. I have noticed that I am able to send a spreadsheet or other people who help me with my writing are able to get into a certain spreadsheet that I have created. I like to add graphs in it as well.

Cons: I dislike just one thing. There is so so so much you can learn with Excel. I feel like this part can be overwhelming, but in a way this is a very good thing. I just noticed that Excel has millions of things that you can do with it. This could be a lot for some people, but it's always good to know more information. It's not a bad thing at all, but at the same time this is something that could cause some people to feel a bit overwhelmed.

Overall: Excel is my favorite. This tool helps me with creating different types of spreadsheets that I need. I love creating data entry projects and also organizing my writer schedule or books with Excel. This has helped make my life easier. This is a great tool for entrepreneurs who are looking for tools that are similar to data entry tools. This one is the best! I have seen Excel get updated over the years and this most recent update has been the best! Great job!

Pros: A number of people believe that if their work involves a lot of heavy Excel work that they must have a PC - that was true at a point in time but it's not true anymore. Excel is better on a PC but there is no reason to be afraid of using it on a Mac. There are still some glitches every now and then such as highlighting issues and pull down issues but it will not slow you down any more than working with it on a PC would. Excel is the most widely accepted spreadsheet program and it's great because of its flexibility and wide range of functionalities. Functional users can work alongside technical users thanks to VBA (visual basic) which is the Microsoft Office programming language.

Cons: If you are a Microsoft 365 user, you probably have access to Excel's online version. This still needs some work as it is not as easy to use online and doesn't accurately allow two people to be working on the same document at the same time. Google Sheets is still the tool to beat when it comes to cloud-hosted spreadsheet collaboration tools

Overall: Excel is the most widely used spreadsheet tool in the business world and now you don't have to be scared to use it if you are used to using a Mac. I think the greatest benefit of Excel is that just about everyone from light users to heavy technical users can open a document and obtain information from it.

Pros: In my work, we get many cases associated with hiring; e construction sector, services, food suppliers, office supplies, vehicles among others. Excel is a great ally to systematize all this information and contain it in a database that may be susceptible to modification, additions and suggestions.

This systematized information is also susceptible to legal analysis, taking into account the time of hiring, the litigating modalities at the time of payment, the agreements payable in consideration and other legal resources that decant from this systematization

Cons: When the IT department introduced this software to daily tasks, my entire department knew how to use it, however, we were not as skilled as our supervisors required, therefore, we had to take parallel courses to work to learn how to use this software at the same time. requested levels.

We learned to use it, however it is not a program that a newbie can use

Overall: Excel is a very interesting corporate solution. It fuses the order generated by the databases, with the advanced systematization of information, turning it into a pioneering program of high productivity, which even transposes the professional environment and is introduced in a pleasant way in homes to organize issues associated with the home.

Excel is a tool that I recommend using all of them for its great utility.

Pros: Microsoft Excel is reffered to as the industry standard spreadsheet software. It has the features that enables business to perform vital functions needed. When using Excel, it helps you to store data and organize it as you prefer. I used Microsoft Excel when I was working as an Administrator and handling Cartage transportations in a logistics company. It allows me to categorize the dates, transport company names, and their arrival of time! You can easily detect which of which are still in need of immediate action. Tracking of shipments? Got it! In need of one vast calculation of duties and taxes? Easy!

With Excel you can do your computations in a very smart way, you can customize mathematical formulas and Excel will do the rest for you!

Cons: Excel can be difficult for beginners to use, especially for those who are not familiar with it. I did struggle when I was just started using Miceosoft Excel and needed to undergo training with it and just meddle and manipulate every single function. A quite overwhelming software at first. It is as well definitely a learning curve when you start dealing with lengthy formulas. One mistake of it can ruin your table of computable variables.

Overall: Microsoft Excel is great for both personal and professional use!

It is an excellent calculation tool. Simply Great

Pros: I like tool because it allows me to perform simple mathematical calculations to the most complex ones, it helps to control different activities that need mathematical formulas or not, from the control of entry and exit of products from a warehouse, control of patient care in a doctor's office, control of a teacher's notes, directories and more. There are infinities of uses for control activities that we can enjoy with this tool.

The program itself already has formulas of predetermined calculations and allows you to customize them and establish the one you require, it also allows to insert images, forms, and format the spreadsheets according to your taste or requirement, the option to present the information of the entered data in graphics it is very useful, since it improves the presentation and they are quicker to appreciate.

Cons: The software is easy to use for its basic elements, but requires prior knowledge or induction to use its most advanced functions, since mathematical equations are difficult to understand used for calculations or complex commands. Algorithm knowledge is required for some functions, this problem is frequent when you try to establish a new formula and throws error, if you do not have the necessary skills it can be somewhat complicated to decipher it. Among other disadvantages may be that to start carrying a complex data database must be entered manually which can take a long time. It also requires a lot of practice to efficiently manage the program.

Overall: Save time when performing calculations that are repetitive

Pros: Particularly I like it a lot, excel facilitates the way in which different calculations are made, you can create formats according to the requirements of each person, it can be as much for something simple as for advanced things where different tools are used, I like enough your graphics and the way in which they can be understood, is a question of knowing how to use it and know it, because it is quite profound.

In my career using it I have made mistakes but in the same way I have improved, getting better and better results.

I consider that it is one of the software that I use the most and one of the ones that I like the most when it comes to formats, presentations, registers, can be used even as a kind of information system, I consider that any idea of format or register of calculations is easy to obtain with excel

Cons:

It is usually very negative that the presentations with this software are so heavy and sometimes it is difficult to send them unless you have a pendrive, as for the rest it is excellent for me and I could recommend it without any problem

Cons: There are some minor problems that people face sometimes one of them is that for people with less experience using this app it is difficult to highlight and spot important data from the whole document and one other issue is the sharing of data is a bit complicated as this is a main thing this app is used for it should be kept very simple also there is this issue that old historical files once kept in it for too long becomes bit difficult to compare with the new files as after updates some things in it are changed.

I think for me Microsoft excel is the main application for documentation and even my friends use this app for this purpose as well overall it is an amazing application.

Pros: This is a powerful spreadsheet program that has been a staple of my daily business for decades. I use it for everything from simple algebraic formulas, to in depth financial analysis, to invoicing. The tables are great for presentations. Excel sets the standard for ease of use (although maybe this is an Apple/Android type of argument). The bottom line is that it does what I need it to do in an efficient and effective manner.

Cons: Excel, like the rest of Microsoft Office, is a pay to play platform. There are several other programs offering similar functionality without charging such as OpenOffice and Google Spreadsheets, but I have found them either less intuitive or missing features. There is a steep learning curve to Excel, like most spreadsheet programs. I have also found it a bit slow if I'm crunching a lot of data points or chaining long strings of calculations such as 30-year amortization schedules. My biggest beef with Excel is that some features are not supported on the mobile version.

Overall: Having been a long-time user of Excel (I switchedfrom Lotus many years ago), my overall experience has been very good. It is in my top 3 usage programs. In spite of some minor niggles along the way, nothing else that I've tried has been quite as good or could fully take its place.

little by little I was familiar with the software and I could see that it is very complete and very interesting, I like that according to the needs of each person, what he wants as a result, excellent results can be obtained.

I quite like their tools, the knowledge that I can make graphics in a very fast way, especially I like dynamic tables give a good presence and are very useful, I usually use them a lot.

Pros: Excel has a quick analysis feature and proves as a best tool for analysis. It gives you the possibility to create your own formulas and it gives you a lot of options that you could also use for data management and the analysis of information It is user friendly. It has wide spread formulas of all the sectors, Formulas like V LOOKUP make your life very easy while analyzing big data,With a combination of formulas that can be used to do almost anything and macros/vba any type of end result you desire is possible. Sorting, filtering, pivot tables, color coding and formatting features are easily available in excel with help option.

Cons: Sometimes it stops functioning or its performance is slower when big data is analyzed. Also, a filter gives a lot of trouble with big data sets. Excel provides a good range of space for information but that space is limited and it does not work properly as the spreadsheet is getting full of information. Also excel gives a lot of unease when doing work in multiple sheets. Navigating between multiple sheets while trying to maintain your position on the original is difficult & confusing. Help option in Excel could have been more descriptive navigated with hyperlinks

MS Excel is and has been an excellent and reliable tool for data logging and computation.

Pros: The ease of use and availability of support for this software are two very big positives that this software has going for it. The user interface is very well organized and it is not at all difficult to navigate this software. For more complex computations, there is an abundance of resources available from Microsoft and third parties online that can help with highly specific questions areas of weakness when using this software. It is very well rounded in the sense that it can be useful on the level of a grade school user all the way up to be a useful tool for deep computations and worksheets designed and set up for critical business use.

Cons: What I like least about this software is the printing options for this software. It is a bit tricky to navigate and customize the results or data in this software for easy printability in my opinion. I use this software to generate reports and oftentimes I require these reports to be printed physically or published in a PDF format. When doing this, page breaks and such can really skew the appearance of the data. This skewing can be manually corrected, however, it does require some time to get all of the formatting done correctly.

Pros: This software is the best of its class. If you are looking for a professional, reliable and easy to use spreadsheet, look no further. I'm excel certified so I use excel every single day. I used it in highschool and in college and now I need it everyday in my workplace. This program has a lot of praise and it deserves it all! Give me a company who does it better then

Microsoft PowerPoint? Not a single one is out there that can even come close. This software is an asset to any organization. Kids should be taught in highschool on how to use this fantastic program. I was taugh in college and I wish I knew about it earlier what a great professional sophisticated program.

Cons: The coding and formulas may be a

Little hard to learn. But once hey are learned it makes the experience even better! Makes everything seem less and easy! I love this program It's incredibly hard to find anything wrong with it!

Overall: I cant imagine a day at work without Microsoft excel. It keeps me organized and efficient when I need to be. It helps me solve equations, makes spread sheets, data charts, graphs, what more can you ask from a single program. Everyone in the business field needs to be utilizing this program it's an asset to any organization.

Pros: I'm not naturally an organized person, so I love that Excel makes it easy for me to keep track of information and resources in an orderly spreadsheet. I always add my category titles in the first row and freeze it, then let my list go as long as I need (and since I'm adding to my lists daily, these can get VERY long). I don't use Excel so much for computing and graphs, which I used to do when I was a surgical coordinator, but I remember how useful it was back them. I also color code cells a LOT and use the feature of creating multiple tabs - love that I can use one document for multiple months.

Cons: This is not exactly a fault of the software, but I have a hard time doing computations and running commands to solve for whatever numbers I might want. This is mainly a problem with the way I think, instead of the way that Excel works. Fortunately, I don't have to do mathematical work with my current job.

Overall: I mainly use Excel for lists, archiving resources (like articles, contacts, websites, etc.), keeping track of my blog and social media content schedule, and tracking progress of projects (not exactly a true GANTT chart, but my version of one). It's been great for all these projects and hasn't let me down yet.

Pros: Excel is there in everyone's work routine.

Excel has three levels: Beginners, Advance and Expert.

Beginners: At this level, user use excel to maintain data. Creating reports, exporting CSVs, inbuilt formulas.

Advance: At this level, users start writing macros, developer tool options, statics and functions.

Expert: Writing VB scripts and creating mini applications for general use comes under this.

I am at Advance level at this time and I use excel a lot in daily routine to generate reports, maintain weekly/daily status. I have created basic macros for office use.

Excel supports various Add-Ins which make excel more powerful.

Most useful feature of Excel is sharing the excel file across multiple people.

Cons: Excel 2016 only supports record rows up to one million. It become really tough to handle data beyond one million rows.

Excel can be very tough for beginners.

Writing macros in VBA are not user friendly and required some coding background.

Excel can only handle structure data.

Overall: Being business analyst, Excel is necessary tool to use. Excel provides wide range of solutions to business needs. Excel is the application which can use/update parallel by multiple users.

Pros: I am using excel everyday in order for me to sort things out. Excel helped me to solve finance and mathematical questions in our business quickly. It also aids me in forecasting everything - from cost, workforce, trends in the market, and you name it! Without excel it will never be also easy for me to maintain the data integrity of our system. Because of excel, combining and removing duplicate entries in our database is as quick as eating your pancake during breakfast!

Without Excel, I will never survive! With Excel, everyone will be able to data crunch easily - unleash the data scientist in you!

Cons: What I least like about Excel is that you really need to learn in order for you to know it's FULL functionality. This is not the same as word or powerpoint that it has templates for you to use from. Yes, it has a template but that's just for design. You still need to watch videos, and do crash courses in order for you to know some things that are not available on the manual or textbooks such as how to pivot, the functions and other new ribbons.

Overall: If you want to data crunch and be a great Data Scientist or Data Master, Excel should be your best friend!

Affordable, dependable and familiar, Excel is the industry standard for spreadsheets.

Pros: Spreadsheets are not sexy, even so, Excel has managed to maintain and improve on its functionality and comfort through familiarity over the years. Microsoft Office Suites, "middle child" has matured and grown into an easy to use, adaptable application that works for everyone, from the "new to technology" user to the "spreadsheets are my life" experts. As a mid-range user, myself, I enjoy the flexibility of Excel for everything from lists to product and sales sheets. The community of users has grown over the year to such a number that there is a wealth of tutorials, forums and articles for any possible task you could dream of asking it to perform. With this support and the power and functionality of the program itself, it's hard to see any downsides to Excel.

Cons: The only thing that I don't like about Excel is that when I'm using it I'm generally working on a task that I'd rather not be. While spreadsheets aren't sexy, Excel truly is. I can admire the function of the tool while still hating the task I'm asking it to perform.

Overall: A favorite and necessary part of my business tool box. Microsoft Excel makes horrible tasks bearable.

A powerful tool, but incredibly hard to fully utilize for most.

Pros: Microsoft Excel is one of the software that is easy to start using, but incredibly hard to master. The software is actually very complex, which allows it to be used in various different ways that some might never even consider. You can even create art and simple games on it.

However, for most, Excel is just used to create simple spreadsheets with static values or even just a simple timetable to be printed out. But with a little bit of research, you will be surprised at how much can be done with a few simple commands. I've used Excel to keep track of inventories, project progress and even with task management, although that actually took a bit more work and the solution I've implemented still leaves plenty to be desired.

However, in general, it's still a useful tool if you have it, but you may have to spend a little time to learn the various types of commands that are available and experiment with how it actually interacts with the data in your spreadsheets.

Cons: As I mentioned, Excel is easy to use out of the box with static values, but where it's supposed to shine is how you can manipulate data with the various commands available.

Unfortunately, there is a steep learning curve to do this, and even creating a simple dynamic spreadsheet can easily take you a whole day if you're doing it for the first time.

And the cost, as far as I'm aware, is actually too high for what most people would use it for. Unless it came bundled with your system, there is always almost no reason to spend on getting Excel as there are other cheaper or even free options available that will do what you probably need it for.

You should only pay for it if you really need to use Excel specifically, if you're a professional user, or if it came with another Office bundle/pack that you need to get anyway.

Pros: One of my favorite things about Excel is that it has so many possibilities. There are so many features and functions that I feel like I could never learn them all. I am learning new ways to use it every time I open it and I love its flexibility. I also love that it is simplistic enough for just about anyone to use the basic features. This means I can utilize the more advanced features but present the information in a way that basic users can understand. They don't need to know the mechanics behind it, they just have to be able to understand the information.

Cons: I am not opposed to change but I must say that sometimes the updated versions seem to make it more difficult to find things, not easier. The downfall of so many possibilities with the software is that there are so many options and they can be hard to navigate at times. Thankfully Microsoft provides an excellent help tool that almost always provides the results you need without must effort.

Overall: Excel can be used for so many business purposes. From tables and charts to advanced formulas and budgeting. I have used it to analyze years of data and to transfer simple lists of information to others.

Pros: This software has excellent features for the fiscal area, which is where I regularly perform.

One of its fundamental characteristics and perhaps the simplest one is the presentation of the data. An aesthetically pleasing form with edges, squares adjusted to the texts, combination of letters, formulas, statistics and other operations, all in a single document.

The grouping and organization of large databases is a strength of this software, especially when analyzing large samples of information, quarterly, semi-annual or annual tax content, swaps, personalized taxes.

Another fundamental characteristic is the combination of cells for the application of forms and results, being able to modify graphs of all kinds with this, without the need to elaborate parallel operations.

Cons: Unlike other applications and softwares that I use regularly, Excel is not for autodidacts. At the beginning of my studies I had to develop many courses, writing down and remembering each function and what it does. Even if you do not use excel regularly, you tend to forget how to use it 100% and conscientiously

Pros: - Excel is very easy to use.

- For an inexperienced person to a professional person, it presents no difficulty level in functioning any task in Excel.

- I think from small organization to MNC's each and every person is using this software in order to sort data without complexity.

- Presents many formulas which makes a task easy to handle.

- There are so many tasks you can do in Excel which are not possible to define but when a person becomes use to this software he/she never wants to leave it as it sorts the work, make it in a sorted order, Saves complex data etc.

Cons: - Need to add some basic formulas and when we need to add them in our data it should be added there directly as what we need to do is firstly we will select formula then going to use that, which actually wastes some time or either we particularly define formula, So i think more GUI should be added in Microsoft Excel or otherwise this is one of the best product of Microsoft undoubtedly :)

Overall: I feel brilliant whenever i have need to use it as it is making my task very easy to handle.

Seriously One of best software in the whole world which actually made for the easyness of the user.

Pros: I use excel since I was still on high school, but now that I am working, I realized that Excel is something that will save your time and your ass. I use Excel when I need to do data crunching, data planning and analysis, and also just for sorting out things.

I can imagine the hardship that I will be going through if Excel is not around. With Excel, the usual data crunching and data analysis that my co-worker does in 3 hours, can be done by me in just 10 minutes.

Cons: What I least like about Excel is that you need to really invest your time watching youtube videos or enroll to Excel classes in order for you to know other functionalities that are set out there.

If you are a data cruncher, you need to constantly study updates of excel such as when they released their new ribbons and formulas. It is not really intended for the weak, and for the not so hardworking guys because Excel needs time investment in order for one to learn it's full functionality.

Overall: Overall, Excel is the best app out there whenever one needs to do data crunching, data analysis, and also simple sorting or categorizing or data entry work. No one in the market can still beat Excel!

Pros: As far as commodity office software goes Excel has long since reigned as the spreadsheet standard (due in part to the MS Office suite integration) but robust features and usability keep Excel at the forefront even among recent alternatives such as Google Sheets.

With all of those features comes a plethora of wizards/templates/guides to make using the software feasible for anyone willing to invest in learning the more advanced operations without consulting outside resources. You can easily begin typing a function to be presented with a list of functions and within that same context menu select a function wizard to assist in pre-populating the desired data. And when you develop more familiarity, a simple hover over tool tip can provide a reminder for whatever esoteric syntax is required for a particular function.

Other spreadsheet alternatives can easily crunch lists of numbers with basic statistical operations. Excel is for those that need or enjoy the additional features and assisted operations for added efficiency.

Cons: Excel demands at least a small learning curve to really unlock the basic potential, there is a high skill ceiling. Some of the more useful features may not be obvious at first use.

For example, populating lists with the quick fill tool or conditional formatting are both time saving features, but readily accessible if you are not adept at learning new software applications.

Pros: As a part of the Microsoft Office suite, Excel is everywhere. It's so common, it's almost boring to write about. But I love Excel. No other spreadsheet software comes close to it in terms of functionality or usability. It sets the standard. Excel saves so much time with calculations, formulas, and macros. The barrier to entry is really low, but the value is through the roof. I can't think of another software that is so common, but so powerful.

Cons: Excel runs deep. I feel like I could spend a lifetime and still not discover all it has to offer. As a result, it often takes me a long time to figure out new and hidden features. If it were easier to discover how things worked when I needed them, it would save a lot of time. I can't count the number of times I've spent hours doing some calculation when I discover there's a formula that could have done it in seconds. Also, the Mac version needs to be beefed up. It's not nearly as useful as the Windows version.

Overall: Excel lets me understand my business metrics. It reveals trends and allows for easy analysis. I most often use Excel to format data for a dashboarding application.

Pros: It is excellent for calculations and results in a database, payroll calculation, information relationship, graphics, and the wide variety of formulas that helps you summarize the information or get what you need. in the same way it allows you to migrate information from this database to word and a combination is added, it helps you to summarize a lot of information with a dynamic table.

It is also a tool where you can create a database by creating a macro to migrate information provided on the first page.

Cons: With each update, the interpretation of the formulas has been complicated every time they change in their holder.

Overall: in a tool that I use constantly in my work to show graphs of results to my bosses as well as to maintain dawning data in order to be used at some moment, simplifies a lot the calculation of great values and exorbitant amounts, works very well with the formulas and It helps me to take what I want from a page very easily.

In the same way, it helps me to work with contracts by migrating information through a combination with word and to minimize the time invested.

in all senses it is a work tool that simplifies processes and helps you save time spent in different processes.

Pros: Oh, Excel. What would we do without you. The Wall Street Journal ran a provocative article not long ago claiming that Excel was dying in favor of more modern and robust options now available to businesses. I'm a pretty progressive technology enthusiast, but I don't see that happening anytime soon. Excel is so deeply integrated into so many different business workflows, and is so dang USEFUL, that business would have to pry it out of the cold, dead fingers of their employees.

I think the trickiest balance for any software to achieve is to offer a deep, rich set of features to meet every possible need, while not letting that complexity overwhelm the user. I think Excel does a decent job of that. You don't NEED to know about all of the deep features to successfully navigate the software, but there is some incredible depth there when you're ready to start exploring and learning more. I consider myself an Excel power user, but I'm still willing to bet that I still know less than half of what it has to offer. And that is a compliment to the software, not a knock.

Cons: I work primarily on Macs, but I'm a professor that is forced to use a PC in the classrooms that I teach in. It is frustrating to me to have to navigate the many differences in how the sofware is laid out on the two different platforms. The functionality is basically the same, but the buttons and layout is different. Why?!

Pros: Excel is another of my faithful companions in my daily work activities. This software combines the accuracy of a spreadsheet with the analytical elasticity of tools such as bar graphs, line graphs, cake graphs, equations and arithmetic operations that allow me to design integral evaluations of the performance of each of the activities, the quantity of participants, the variables associated with the occurrence of sports activities, the expenses demanded by each of the activities, and the projections in terms of needs to strengthen the activities carried out on site.

Cons: Many people claim that handling Microsoft Excel at first is complicated, however it was not my case, I adapted very easily to the software and I made it part of my daily activities, therefore I do not find any negative points in the

Pros: I like everything about Microsoft Excel. First off, it is easy to install and set up this platform. For that reason, it is also easy to use Microsoft Excel. Therefore, with just a little training, the user is in a better situation to produce professional spreadsheets. I like how this platform integrates with other Microsoft services such as PowerPoint, Outlook, and Publisher. All combined together ensures that the organization suits the needs of their clients since they offer quality work that depict their brand.

Cons: Even if Microsoft Excel is the best platform for budgeting and data entry projects, it is becoming less competitive on the market since there are some other tools with advanced templates, while Microsoft Excel has outdated templates. Also, to get a genuine cloud-based version of Excel is not cheap. It would be much better if they would reduce the subscription fee.

Overall: Microsoft Excel has enabled us to organize large amount of data into logical spreadsheets. Additionally, we have also been in a better situation to maintain conducive working environment since we have transformed papers into data spreadsheets.

Pros: 1. Excel is designed to work well with facts and figures, however, it can do much more. For some types of data, this tool can be an ideal system for the management of a database.

2. Its dynamic tables are a great help to identify trends or patterns within the large amount of data available.

3. As automation tools you have macros. In addition, visual basic for applications, where you can create your algorithms and thus execute more complex programs. You have many functions, which you can call without so much complexity.

Cons: 1. If the amount of data to analyze is very large, the program becomes slow and collapses.

2. When we are working with the module "Visual basic for applications", despite the simplicity of the language, large iterative processes such as numerical methods, take a considerable amount of time to reach convergence.

Overall: As an inventory planner, I executed allocation and replenishment tools from the distribution center to the stores. Excel helped to manage the huge amount of available data and thus determine consumption patterns, calculate indicators of the retail sector, merchandise allocation, among others.

Pros: I have been a satisfied Excel user for quite a long time. Excel has made the date storage very easy and it allows the user store and organize large amount of data in spreadsheets. Another great feature is calculation of large numbers, whether its calculation of monthly profits or arrangement of payments, everything is on your finger tips with the help of excel.

You can find and scroll through pile of data with only one short key CTRL+F and desired results will be on your screen in blink of an eye.

Excel is frequently used product so if you have any trouble using it or any questions, just do a search and you'll find the answers momentarily. The feature I like the most is its integration with Onedrive, which allows the user to save the files directly to cloud storage and access it on all synced devices.

Cons: Excel is an amazing software, but there is one thing i dislike. User cannot reset the password of protected files. There are few fixes I found on forums but Excel should have a method to reset the password of protected files.

Pros: The slick design and simple interface in this software makes it easy for preparing appealing spreadsheets and data entry projects. I like how it is simple to install Excel. For that reason, you do not need to be pro in order for you to install, setup, and start using it. You only need to get the required training, and you will be on a safer side to offer perfect results. The agency that I work for have used, is using, and will continue to use Excel as their main tool for financial reporting. Excel is offered in two categories, on-premise and cloud-based solution. Online Excel help me to work from anywhere, provided there is robust internet connection. It is easy to customize Excel to meet varying needs. In our corporation, we use it for financial reporting.

Cons: The license cost per user is only the issue that Microsoft need to amend. They should reduce the subscription fee or increase the number of devices that can use one account.

Overall: Excel has increased ROI since we do not need a lot of workforce while undertaking various obligations like financial reporting.

Pros: It allows me to make any kind of tables, which I can then use to process and represent information.

My knowledge in this program is very basic, but I have been able to take advantage of it and it is very useful to locate information, create forms, this is an unlimited tool you can do many things to do programs, of course I do not have that level of knowledge.

Another thing that has is that you can make self-executing or dynamic tables, graph information in multiple ways and that are updated when you modify the data, it is very interesting.

Cons: It is not so easy to learn to use this program, it is a very good tool but learning to use it deserves to dedicate time.

Putting alphabetical data in cells is complicated as a word processor, it is somewhat cumbersome.

When printing a document or table is somewhat complicated by the issue of setting the margins, you have to be careful about this.

Overall: It has allowed me to analyze and present better statistical data in relation to my work management, you can give a very professional touch to the graphical tables. It has been very useful in the labor field.

Pros: I work in a government office in Mexico, and once I dove into the full features of Excel data mining became posible. In a place where burocracy is on the daily list of attendance, burdenful burocracy, we've managed to reduce report times in various days. The main drawback is the fear that non Excel users tend to have to this software, even if the learning curve is pretty basic for the common user. If the common user has a file set up, they are explained of how everything works (mainly formulas), and they are showned with how rapidly reports can be made, the normal everyday tasks of an office can turn into something even delightful.

Cons: The steep learning curve in formula aplication and syntax, but fortunately there are tons of sites and videos online with sometimes many routes of getting around a problem. You should try it out.

Overall: Mainly data analysis and reports are being made in minutes time, after correctly setting up tables and adding data work is just a breeze. Just wait to be amazed by the power of pivot tables and pivot graphs, then you'll lament not having worked with Excel before.

Pros: Excel is versatile, and can be used for most situations when organizing data of any kind. It's great to use when structuring data and ideas or running and tracking basic mathematical calculations. It's also very useful for creating tables which can be saved as CSV files and called upon by other programming languages, or for and sharing CSV files which are output from code.

I probably use excel for more technical problems than most of the rest of the world. I have made extremely complex mathematical models in excel, shared between teams of 20+. The majority of things that can be modeled in Matlab or through programming languages have some way to be modeled in Excel, and can be read by a wider audience when done in excel. I've had many teams translate code to excel when taking on other partners just so that everyone could read and contribute to a model.

Cons: Doing any mathematical modeling that is particularly complex in Excel is not always the best use of time, or the most robust, compared to other software solutions. If the universality isn't needed, I would definitely recommend using other software for mathematical modeling.

Overall: I use excel daily just to track basic metrics, run back of the envelope calculations, or structure thought when collecting data. I've done a few more intense projects with excel where multiple team members worked together to create complex cost or mathematical models using macros and visual basic.

Pros: I really like the ability to design/automate custom reports, and the fact that Excel is established as a valuable resource amongst my colleagues. I use multiple report generation platforms in day to day activities. Yet somehow clients always end up wanting a report in Excel format. So I figure, when possible why not start down the path I'll ultimately end up on any way.

Cons: There is a limit on the amount of data that excel can handle, 1,048,576 rows. This row limit is where I typically encounter issues when trying to process multiple years worth of data. While it seems to function well even with close to one million rows of data. As soon as filters are applied, I've experienced the app crashing or running excessive processing times.

Overall: Outside of the general exposure we got in college, I've attended several courses from beginner to advanced, even a few courses on VBA specific to excel.

Over the years built countless reports, and report generators using excel in conjunction with VBA. The ability to automate the report generation process has saved me hours each month, and helped improve efficiencies within my organization.

Pros: I am in charge of all of the accounting at my company. I use excel on a daily bases. I love using excel because of the ability to create formulas and templates that can be used for many months to come. I have to prepare the monthly financials for my company every month and I am super grateful for Excel because a couple of years ago I was able to create a template that I still use today. The template is amazing because it has all of the necessary formulas to give me the results I need with little effort on my part. If you have to deal with data and numbers, then Excel is your best friend. Excel with help you get the results you are looking for in a quick matter without a ton of work. Plus, you can make your numbers look nice and neat by coloring the rows or boxing the data.

Cons: The only con I have about Excel, is that there is quite a learning curve to be able to start mastering the amazing formulas. Excel can do so much. I have been using Excel for many years and I am still learning how to master it!

Pros: This enables you to take a deep dive into data to figure out what's going on. You can easily customize charts, graphs, and tables, and you can do much more. Have you heard of SLICERS? Yeah, baby! Slicers! Best thing since sliced bread. You can be a rockstar with your C-suite if you learn how to answer questions with the click of a radio button or filter to show them the data while you're presenting profit, loss, volume, and productivity reports.

Cons: It takes a little time to learn all the features, but there is a huge online community who can answer your questions if you plug in the questions. Also, for some reason, when I have Outlook open, my Excel gets snarky with me and decides to ding at me until I close Outlook.

Overall: I've used this tool for longer than I can remember. I remember having a debate with my former CFO about needing Excel. He kept trying to get me to use another database program - it's been so long ago that I forget what it was called...because I don't think it survived, and my CFO had to bow down to me with mud on his face acknowledging that the software I selected was the better of the two.

Pros: From balancing my finances to organizing my church's worship night, the possibilities for this software are endless. I have honestly done so much in my life already and excel just keeps coming with me wherever I go. I started using excel in college during a spreadsheets class. After graduation I used Excel to track the stock at the retail stores I was managing at the time. After changing jobs and making less money, I used Excel to predict and balance my finances. Now I'm using Excel as a scheduling tool. Excel is so versatile, no matter what I am doing, it comes with me.

Cons: Memorizing all the functions is a pain. The software itself is an excellent guide if you haven't taking any classes on using Excel. However, I would say actually learning the program on your own can be difficult.

Overall: I used to be a very disorganized person. This software keeps me on my toes and constantly moving forward. It makes everything I try to explain, much clearer to anyone I present a spreadsheet to. I've also saved a ton of money just by looking at my spending habits on a clearly laid out spreadsheet

Pros: Excel has so many uses in my business. We've used it to create automated pricing models for various inventory, such as calculating what our price per pint on beer should be based on the cost of a keg. We've been a spreadsheet where we simply enter the cost of the keg and the size of the keg and it provides us with all the info we need around cost per ounce, price we should charge per pint, etc. I've also used this to perform time tracking for our employees and to manipulate and create pivot tables for our retail sales and inventory data from our POS system. The amount of ways you can view and manipulate data in this program is ENDLESS. I don't know how people run a business without it!

Cons: The learning curve can be a bit steep, however a quick google search will yield a how-to to perform any function you can think of.

Overall: This is an absolute go to tool for our business. Whether creating pricing model tools, or easily examining trends of sales during a given hour using raw data transformed into a pivot table, Excel is open on my computer on a daily basis.

Pros: Microsoft Excel has more functions built in than any user will need. This means that nearly anything you need to do with numbers - math, graphs, database, etc. - Excel can handle. I personally like the function selector, which helps you properly deploy any number of specialized math formulas and functions. Finance people will find everything they need to supplement the ERP system their business uses. Normal folks will find myriad features to make business and personal life easier and well organized.

Cons: Over the years the menu has changed, with the current menu being mostly a collection of ICONs that must be learned. The order in which common functions appear varies from one Office app to the other. I do not like the built-in anticipation where Exel appears to being trying to read your mind and guess what you want to do. The fancy copy & paste sub-menu that pops up when all you want is to CTRL C and CTRL V some data. In order for Excel to provide what everyone needs, it necessarily has a bunch every user will not need.

Pros: Extremely flexible, it can be used to simply list items, to create work documents or tabs, execute multiple math operations, and everything in between. There are a lot of customization options when it comes to page layout and sizes, text and tabs formatting, and so on. You can also set up an automatic saving process with multiple copies, making editing extremely safe. The design fits well both the Desktop and Mobile versions of the program, facilitating ease of use. It is part of the Office suite, so you will also have the other tools as well.

Cons: Getting to know all the possible functions and buttons might require some time, which might slow down first-time users. The price, although fairly low, might pose a problem for some users who don't have a reliable income. The subscription includes other tools which some users might not need, and there is no option to buy this program individually.

Overall: I use Excel daily, usually to organize my work and to keep tabs about personal data. It has never failed me, and each update made it progressively better.

Pros: Several years back I help move the company I work for over to google suite. Excel is the one program we could not stop using. I work daily in SolidWorks and Autodesk Inventor, and need excel for its seamless integration with these two applications. Both these applications support bill of material export to excel, which is not supported in any competitor software I have used. Beyond that, if you are savvy with visual basic for applications, you can code limitless time saving macros inside excel that automate repetitive tasks in other applications. This capability has helped me save my employer thousands. Take the leap, learn VBA and start removing human error from your standard practices. You will not regret it.

Cons: Some of the user interface changes from 2010 excel to 2016 excel took some getting use to, but overall not a big downside.

Overall: With excel's capability to program VBA macros, I am able to automate tasks that would have taken employees 30-60 minutes. These tasks now take about 2 minutes with the VBA macros, and are error free!

Pros: It goes without saying that any and every business will use Microsoft Excel. It has stood the test of time as being the best. The troubleshooting guide can help you get through most problems if you can not figure them out on your own. As well, Excel offers a very nice way of keeping all information neatly organized with its multiple tabs and sheets per file. It is highly recommended that all businesses use this as its versatility is second to none. Once you have a grasp of the software you will see the endless capabilities that come with it. You can do mathematical calculations seamlessly to keep track of how your small business is doing. There is also graph and table implementation which you can also add to any spreadsheet.

Cons: The only reasonable con about Microsoft Excel is that if you have very little knowledge and you want to use it for all of its complexities, you are going to have a hard time at first familiarizing yourself with the vast amount of different applications it offers.

Pros: The powerful built-in mathematical equations of Excel made me realize that computations not need to be difficult. I can easily do calculation because Excel provided everything I need as a Math teacher. Whenever I don't know how mathematical formulas work, I always rely on Excel. By the way, did I mention that I can also prepare Accounting transactions in Excel? Yes, you read it right, Excel as spreadsheet software makes mathematics and accounting easy. Oh, before I forgot, I also like Excel's features of embedding other Microsoft applications specifically database. I can also import and export data instantly. Excel really excels!

Cons: I have been using this software for 18 years now and I am happy that Microsoft always provides an updates and enhances the functionalities from time to time. For me, Microsoft Excel is a perfect spreadsheet software.

Overall: As far as mathematical features are concerned, Excel is really an excellent software. It generates reports perfectly fine, especially reports that need to be presented in graphs.

Pros: I really enjoy that when I input my data I can do specific calculations with pre-determined equations. It makes doing the most simple and most complicated equations easy and user friendly. Furthermore, I like that it's closely related to Microsoft word and I can color code columns and rows as I see fit. Lastly, I enjoy that I can import and export data from other programs I use, especially in my science and biology labs. For example, when measuring heart beats or pulse rates with a separate program I can afterwards export it to Microsoft excel. My absolute favorite thing is the ability to take the data and make it into charts and graphs.

Cons: I sometimes find the specific equations difficult to find. In my science labs in college I would have play by play directions on how to do my calculations, which taught me how to navigate excel better. However, without those step by step directions finding equations and making those calculations would he harder. Also, making very specific graphs can be a little hard to navigate without proper training.

Overall: Overall, my experience with Excel has been excellent. Like I've mentioned, I've mostly only used it with my science and biology labs in college but for those purposes it has been great. I've never lost any of my work, it always auto saves and has backups. I also am always able to find the answers to any questions I have about the program on Microsoft.com.

Pros: Before work environment I was using Excel just for only creating tables. It was convenient for me than MsWord. But after graduating from university I started working and since then I explored many useful features of Excel. My most liked feature of Excel is automation feature which is the main purpose of Excel. If you create right formula, only writing numbers will be left and Excel will do all calculations for you. Another great feature of Excel is the ability analyzing big data very easily. I can arrange needed data by just adding filter on a column and choosing needed parameter. If you are creative enough you can explore endless features of Excel.

Cons: What I don't like about Excel is sheet logic. When I delete any sheet, if there was a connection with another sheet, numbers confuse immediately on another sheet. But I would like number remain same on other sheet. I dont know such freezing feature is possible or not but would be great if it is possible.

Pros: Excel is a reliable product of Microsoft. In my opinion, I think Excel is the most excellent spreadsheet software available. I like it because the installation process is easy and straightforward. It allows the creation of graphs, tables and graphics. You can also use it to enter and save data. It helps us create neat and professional spreadsheets, which keeps our work organized. It is also accurate when performing mathematical calculations.

Cons: Sometimes, this software gets slow. It hangs for a moment and then starts working normally. This hinders you from completing your projects on time. I think the developer should work on that to avoid inconvininences, which leads to time wastage.

Overall: Data entry is one of the solutions offered by Excel. It also enables us to create well-organized spreadsheets. With the aid of this tool, our team is able to perform accurate financial and other calculations, which boosts efficiency in the workplace. I can recommend MS Excel to every business owner because it is amazing and easy to manage.

Pros:

What I like most about the Microsoft Excel application is the way in which it facilitates my work, saving me time in daily activities through its formulas, such as: sum, average, concatenate, vlookup, among others.

It also allows me to better visualize the results of my work through graphics.

I highly recommend the Excel application, for all the advantages it offers

Cons:

I do not see it against the software. The only improvement I would make is in terms of the graphic interface, I think it should be more user-friendly, and have more online help so that less experienced users learn to use the tool more quickly.

Overall:

My experience with excel has been satisfactory, it helps me save time, and to do my job in a better way.

With all its functions it allows me to carry out quality work, in more detail. Thanks to Excel I can incorporate graphics, formulas, clean documents, among other functionalities that I use in my day to day.

Pros: Very User friendly! The drop down menus, GUI and icons are all easily accessible. Any functions that you need to write within the program can be easily found with the help options. Nothing seems quirky or out of place,

Extremely valuable add-ons. Within Excel you can download additional add-ons that enable alot of statistical analysis, from simple averages to more complex t testing, rng's etc.

This software is also very well integrated with other microsoft office platforms such as the one drive, you can also easily export data into powerpoint or word without any hassle. Very well designed program

Cons: Lack of tutorials within the software however this can be easily circumvented with youtube videos or google searches.

The formatting of tables can sometimes be difficult, as the "Insert" function usually messes up the formatting of the tables, this can be a major issue if formatting is important.

Overall: statisitical tool, organizational tool, database manager

Comments: I have been working on Microsoft Excel from a very long time. From around MS office 2007 and my experience with it has always been satisfying. For even a basic user who just started using Excel, he would find it very easy to start making basic finance reports or credit history or any spreadsheet in such case. I always thought of it to be beyond common reproach, there were tools only an expert could master and those were the tools I started to learn in 08'. MS Excel has helped me a lot in my professional life as I have been invited by many companies to make detailed reports, whether they are on their finance, accounts or any other data. Not only to such organizations but to schools even, Excel is the most widely used software as it is very easy to make report cards or fee vouchers on the program and I admire this ability of it. It is hard to learn though for a beginner but nowadays, tutorials do exist for everything on the internet or YouTube to be much more specific.

Pros: The software really is amazing. It has formulas which are not that easy to use but still are very helpful for a guy like me.

Cons: It is difficult to use all the features for a newbie.

Recommendations to other buyers: Try to learn through tutorials how to become an excel power user.

Pros: Excel is everything, no other software compares. I use it for everything, it is my calculator, my project managing tool, my reporting tool, my data analytics tool, we even use it at work to decide the random order in which our Hackaton participants will present. I use it to build macros to help me automate multiple tasks at work. There are a ton of resources online to help you when you run into something you don't know how to do, I search how to code certain things in VBA all the time and just adjust as needed. There are tons of articles from microsoft as well as youtube videos from other sources, you will never get stuck with Excel.

Cons: I still prefer other software when it comes to data visualization. I find that it is much easier to use in PCs than it is in Macs. One in a while my excel will crash when I am running a macro in the background, although my work is usually autosaved so it is more of an inconvenience than a disaster.

Pros: As a college student, each assignment requires a different task to be completed. Excel can do it all. I have completed simple graphing procedures and also assessed complex datasets with 500,000+ data points. The versatility of this program - if you know how to use all of its features - is incredible. There hasn't been a single assignment in my college career that I haven't considered using this program for. My rule of thumb is that if you can think of something that you wished a program could do, Excel can do it.

Cons: Without the proper instruction on how to use the program it can seem a bit daunting to use. There are a lot of features and shortcuts that take some time to understand and get used to.

Overall: Data analysis and organization. For small to moderate scale data sets Excel can do everything you want it to do and more. It is streamlined and easy to use. Organizing anything is done best with this program - edit your project to look exactly the way you want it so you can share your ideas!

Pros: I like excel for creating monthly and year reports. I use Microsoft Excel for monthly reports to Management on our Portfolio at the end of every month. I like using the HELP function when you are stuck on what you need to add to your new report. I usually create a report from our system Servicer3D as CSV and convert to excel which is really easy to do. I use Excel to monitor progress of a weekly, monthly and year reporting of staff or business projects.

Cons: I didn't know how to just some of the function without the HELP function. Excel changes from year to year, I wish they would notify you of the changes. I was stuck on a report, received instruction from the vendor on how to update the report and it wouldn't work for me. Only to find out they were using a older version.

Overall: I love how you can use reports that you create over and over each month. It a GREAT monitoring system. Use it for calculations on a monthly basis for progress of your pipeline or business.

Pros: Every engineer loves Excel. I've designed whole bridges using nothing else. Macros are relatively easy to code in Visual Basic, and can be used for almost anything. For day to day use, programming cells to conduct iterative calculations makes analysis go much faster. Features so easy an undergrad can use it (actually, that's when most of us learned it). Easy formatting for tables to put into plan sheets, plays nice with most CAD programs I've used and allows tables to be imported to plan sheets with one click, and all formatting intact. I probably use Excel more than I use any other program.

Cons: Sometimes updates cause a loss of formatting, and this has to be followed through to all longstanding spreadsheets throughout the department. This is actually a great job for interns, but we don't always have interns.

Overall: Faster analysis, more efficient design process, easy universal implementation, widely known and useful for all engineering applications.

I have used it since days of Windows 3.11 and it never failed to impress me with its loads of features, usability and versatility. From simple expenses spreadsheet to most advanced, sophisticated reports, you can do it all. Simple to complex mathematical formulas, Pivot Tables, Graphs, Charts, it will take hundreds of pages to even explain 10% of features of offered by Excel. It is the most comprehensive software created by Microsoft. Also its so immensely popular, that you can get help on almost any feature, functionality just by Googling about it (if you are lazy to read abundance of Help it offers)

Pros: Ease of use and functionality are Excel's greatest strengths. The spreadsheet software from Microsoft packs in a number of extremely useful features that help convert data into information. From basic calculation to advanced features such as pivot table, macros and much more, Excel is useful for just about everybody - from students to professionals.

Cons: There really are not many negatives when it comes to Microsoft Excel. However, the one thing that's always been irritating is the lack of inherent help in the software. There would be times when one would be in a dilemma as to how to make a particular feature work as per his needs or how a feature works in general. To get a solution you would invariably have to take the help of the internet as Excel's own help module doesn't really help with most everyday queries.

Overall: No other spreadsheet software comes close to the sheer potential of what you can do with data in Excel. I would strongly recommend it.

I use functions within Excel to find data, extract data, and manipulate data. I also really enjoy how there if functionality to write your own code within Excel, so I am able to make programs and my own functions. I also really love the charting elements within Excel. This enables you to transfer your data into visualizations conveniently and quickly.

Cons: There is not much that I can complain about within Excel. I could perhaps suggest that the software begins adding functionality similar to Tableau; however, Microsoft has already added Power View and is working on further additions. In its current form, Excel doesn't have any negatives in my opinion.

Overall: Being able to make meaningful insights into data, transform data into visualizations, and expedite processes.

Easy dragging feature is also great feature which helps to copy needed formula to other cells. I must admit that learning Excel is not so easy. But whenever you learn it deeply you will be be high skilled and wanted professional.

Cons: My only concern is about mobile version of Excel. Functionality is normal but it opens spreadsheets very slowly. Loading time is a little bit longer. My phone ram memory is 4GB and loading time must be shorter in such high featured phone.

Overall: Excel makes my work easier by calculating large scale of numbers with a single click. I configure formula once and use it for a long time. It saves my time and helps me focusing to other projects.

Pros: Excel is a great tool for organizing information and it has the added benefit of being a very well-known program. It's pretty unlikely that you will ever come across a person who hasn't used Excel at least once. This is essentially the "industry-standard" when it comes to spreadsheets. For tracking purposes, I love that I can create multiple tabs in a single document for different streams of data. This makes it a lot easier to compile information in a single file rather than sending multiple spreadsheets.

Cons: I will be totally honest. I really struggle with the usage of Formulas. I know they are a valuable tool, they save time and they are more accurate than me fat-fingering a calculator. However, they don't appear very user-friendly to a math-challenged person such as myself. I feel like there should be a built-in tutorial for how to use Formulas. IF there is one already, I have yet to locate it!

Pros: One of the most interesting things I noticed when learning how to use excel was that I could create formulas to perform calculations as simple as adding, and in turn to make them in rows and columns, using the sheets to store numerical data, the truth eventually I knew I used it and it became easier for me to work, because previously I did the work in Microsoft Word, and I did it more slowly. Excel made the job easier for me.

Cons: To start using it, you need a person who trains you correctly, because it cost me to learn it on my own. It can also be used only with macintosh and windows. By knowing how to use excel, work becomes easier.

Overall: When I started using Microsoft Excel my experience was frustrating, because I did not have the basic and necessary knowledge, and the work was done slowly and I did not advance in what I was doing, but as I got to know it better, I was able to perform efficiently in the company and Progress with the pending work I had when I performed them manually.

Pros: One of the fundamental characteristics that I find Excel to be positive is the variety of tools it has to organize information.

Summaries, segmentation of rows and columns, mathematical formulas, financial text to combine events, graphs, hyperlinks, organization of variables, organization of information, data that can be exported to the microsoft cloud with google drive among other tools that I use permanently and not only at my job but at home.

Currently I work in a unit that systematizes health cases to be sent to medical institutions that can treat them, and Excel is very important for the performance of my functions in my company.

Cons: Before using Excel, I had to do previous courses and thus be able to use their full potential to the fullest. People who are going to use excel for the first time should be instructed in the use of their tools to get the most out of this software.

Pros: Excel really does a lot. This is a program that does so much that you have to spend time either in a classroom or watching videos to learn all the wonderful Applications it offers to your workforce. For instance, a this has been a great tool when calculating numbers, but is a wonderful tool when you are trying to keep track of data for education in volunteer management. This software is often assumed it is just for accounting, but really does help with accountability in all aspects of a business and not just number related. I highly recommend those looking for a management spreadsheet to give excel a chance and I believe you will be happy with that decision.

Cons: The only con is the program does so much that you have to be willing to learn all of its applications.

Overall: I have been using excel ever since I was in high school over 20 years ago and this program really does so much that you learn everyday what it does.

Pros: We have been using this tool since our college time. And have been gaining lots and lots of benefits from it. Its such an efficient tool that even today it stand up to all our necessities for record keeping. With mathematical integration, and graphical representation and auto-saving and calculations are all those features which makes it best in the market.

Cons: As we are advancing , there are more and more tools available in the market which are much more advance and reliable than excel. So, microsoft should put in some more work and updates in this tool to make it ever lasting. Sometimes, it doesn't qualify our working standards and we only use it for limited work like data keeping and record measurement.

Overall: We have implemented this tool at our office at initial levels for the beginners or for record keeping and tracing the working history. We have also stored our client and employees data using excel because it is much reliable and long lasting tool.

Pros: I am a Professor, so keeping an accurate record of all m grades, with all their respective calculations can be a highly complicated task. However, Microsoft excel is an excellent tool, capable of doing pretty much any type of complicated calculation within its spreadsheets. With total onedrive cloud service pairing, it is very simple to instantly save your progress in the cloud, an indispensable feature for today's on-the-go necessities. Moreover, other cool aspects of this app include the chance of creating powerful graphics, based on the data you are giving to the program.

Cons: It can be a little bit too expensive getting the license for using the full version, and therefore unlocking all of its features. Plus, for some inexperienced users, Excel could be a little complicated to use, and more so to master. However, with enough patience and practice, thi can be effectively solved.

I don't know if there is any other similar applications available or I didn't have to think about an alternate yet.

Pros: I can't do anything at my work with out excel. I am a system administrator and engaged in monitoring the performance of servers both in location and remotely and need to keep track of data and enter it in to a sheet. I have created an excel template for everyone at work so that they can use it to track the server activities on the go. I received an appreciation from our Director of technology last month for creating such a great template which is very useful for the entire organization. Excel formulas are just great in time saving.

Cons: I am confused about some functions that work well with an excel file but not with a csv file. I always enter data in to an excel file and my manager needs it in csv always, so I convert it to csv and send to him. He used to complain sometimes that some of the entries are not formatted correctly. I see some formulas format wrongly when downloaded in csv.

Pros: As a medical student, we often have to study diseases from the statistical point of view, other times it means that we have to do those statistics.

A task that is really tedious can be fun if I use Excel.

This software facilitates all those complex operations, in addition to offering an impeccable presentation of these. I must also emphasize that I can convert those insufferable numbers into friendly graphics with just a click, graphics that of course facilitates the understanding and reading of the numerical data.

For the first time I'm glad that there is software that facilitates a task that would be infinite handmade

Cons: I think the only disadvantage that this software brings is that it is a little complicated to use, it takes some time to understand what we are doing.

It is something that differentiates it from other Microsoft softwares such as Word or PowerPoint that are very easy to use.

I would be much happier than I already am if there was a version "for dummies"

Of the rest, I keep saying and I will continue saying that it is one of the best softwares that I could use

Overall: As I said, excel has made it easier for me to do and analyze statistics.

which is very important because statistics are very common elements of study. For that, I thank that this software exists

Pros: I love the fact that Excel has the ability to be used in every organization for numerous tasks. For starters, it is very user-friendly and most everyone you connect with will know how to use such software. The number one think I LOVE about this software is that anyone can sit down and utilize it to improve their daily lives.

Cons: I would have to say that the customer support can be a bit better. I often find myself finding answers to questions on other websites that are not affiliated with Microsoft. Because this software is so user-friendly, different people tend to learn how to complete tasks multiple ways and will not remember the "best" solution to get such task done.

Overall: My daily productivity increased and I found myself learning and helping others with this product. This product not only benefits you from an efficiency and organizational standpoint, but it invites everyone who uses it to learn more about a computer and how it works. It is truly amazing.

Pros: This software is extremely powerful, and so far, I have been able to accomplish everything I sought out to do (and more). I use Excel almost daily for many different tasks at home (budgeting, business planning, logging actions, and keeping lists) and at work (budgeting, keeping track of hours, creating mock-databases (through multi-tab relations), doing research, and calculating costs and timings. This software is expensive, but it is the best in its field. There are plenty of online tutorials for helping to learn different uses of the software and how to use various functions and formulas.

Cons: This software is expensive for a home purchaser. For many, other free options (like Google Sheets) will suffice. For advanced users, you can't skimp on having the full functionality of Excel.

Overall: I use this software daily in many settings at both work and home for everything from budgeting to academic research.

Pros: The most thing about Excel is it has made or daily routine at work more easier and any kind of calculation can be made in a easy way. I would also like to say about graph it provides us many kind of graphing and that explains in very simple way and that attracts clients and bosses and it is not difficult to learn about its programming so i think this is the best software for calculation i have ever used in my life.

Cons: I personally believe, there are no cons in Microsoft Excel Software. If i think about some minor issues sometimes when i transfer my Excel data in other systems or i send through email it makes some issues when i open that file in other systems it create version confusion and make my data a little messy. But now i have resolved this problem and i always used the same version of Excel in every system and recommend others the same version details whom ever i send Excel data.

Pros: I use Excel on a daily basis and there are lots of things that I love about it - one of them being its calculating. I love being able to take an entire spreadsheet during budget time and use the sum feature to calculate how much was spent in an entire year. I also love using the comment feature. I share several spreadsheets with my team so, adding comments to each cell really helps me to communicate with them on the spreadsheet. I also love the way excel can sort or filter a list with minimal effort from me. The search and find filter is also very helpful for finding a specific cell in a large spreadsheet or finding duplicate entries in a long list.

Cons: The one thing that I dislike about excel is how difficult it is to use the equations and maximize your use of its calculating features. I've been using excel for years and I still find it very difficult to understand.

Pros: Microsoft Excel is such a powerful tool not just to enter and organize data but to analyze and transform them into more meaningful information as well. It is indeed user friendly when it comes to performing basic accounting operations and it even becomes more versatile when you learn to use their advanced functionalities. It has numerous built-in components that make it worthy to have in any business industry.

Cons: It crashes most of the time when the data is large (like when using macro), but that's mostly an issue in any software. There are also instances when you accidentally click a random cell and it becomes somehow difficult to modify the formula or undo the action.

Overall: Excel has helped me a lot from organizing simple data, carrying out basic calculations, up to performing complicated statistical analysis. It never fails to overwhelm me with its usefulness starting from when I was a Statistics major until now being a functional analyst.

Pros: Best calculating software for organizing any kind of work. Charts are the wonderful feature of excel that let me explain may work smartly. By showing information in a chart viewers can easily understand all the ups and downs of that work. Even I use excel for my personal monthly budget and manage everything decently. I am satisfied with this featured software and I've been using it since I was in educational institute.

Cons: To great extent Excel has been a software that is being used by millions of users it is no doubt a great software but, the thing I am going to put here is about the collaboration problem. When sometimes I share my excel file with someone it work perfect in my device but when the receiver try to open that creates some messiness with my data. So this is the con I have to face and apart from that problem it does not let me feel boring because of its nice functionality.
