Pros: Any goal you have in mind for a spreadsheet, you can accomplish with Excel. It's a powerhouse and the industry standard for a reason. It makes tracking data efficient, and helps visualize plans for the future.

One of the most helpful features for me, as someone who isn't especially well-versed in the finer functions of the program, is the tips that pop up as you're typing a formula, and the detailed error messages when you inevitably botch one.

The ability to click and drag to select cells for formulas is also quite helpful and saves time for larger sheets.

Cons: It has a bit of a learning curve. Its design and interface isn't especially user-friendly, so you can't expect an inexperienced team to be up and running with it on day 1 (but then again, what spreadsheet software is different?).

I also wish it was easier to interface Excel with Word in terms of transporting data.

And lastly, as someone who is primarily an artist, I wish I could customize my sheets even more to make them as visually pleasing as possible.

Overall: I use Excel to track just about everything. Primarily, I track my freelance work and my income from that (for the lovely IRS) and use formulas to see total earnings, average month/day/year earnings, projected income, data for slow periods, etc. It makes tax time a breeze, especially with the ability to coordinate across sheets and files.

I also use it to track prospective clients, money and work for my team, and even for my monthly bills and expenses. I used to just keep records in Word documents or on paper, and have to sort through them every week to figure things out; now it's all updated instantly and organized.

Pros: I have been using Excel since the 90's and like how flexible the tool is. I've used it to create planners, budgets, to do lists, loan calculators, calendars, financial reports, reconciliation tools, resumes, contact lists, trip itineraries, financial models, statistical analyses, stock charts and surveys.

I really love how much formatting is possible, the depth of financial functions and the number of online resources to support use of this wonderful tool. Over time, the interface and functionality has got smarter and recent versions of the software seem to anticipate your needs and offer the correct options and functions based on the context of your current actions.

Cons: There is a tendency to use Excel for everything and in some cases a database or dedicated project management tool would be more suitable to the task at hand. I've seen investment companies using Excel to monitor and report on millions of dollars of assets and personally used Excel to manage complex projects where other tools would have been much less manual.

My criticisms may be due to lack of knowledge, but, I really struggled with collaboration and version control when working with an outside organization. We used the same Excel workbook and forwarded this document back and forth with updates. Manually keeping track of the versions and changes became a nightmare. I've also seen situations where you have functions referencing cells in other documents or tabs and the links can be fragile, easily broken - sometimes causing rework and potential errors.

Overall: Excel is so powerful and is the gateway for many people into harnessing the power of large data. It is indispensable for most office workers and individuals who need to input, track, manage and manipulate data in an increasingly complex world.

Pros: I have used the variations of the same product for over 15 years, and I have been happy with it. I do know that when I was an Economics Student my Econometrics professor recommended that we do not use MS Excel for statistical analysis, given that he preferred SPSS. However, it is possible to use MS Excel for statistics. It is very easy to make all sorts of charts and graphs to figure out the important factors in your mathematical model. MS Excel has various mathematics features that are always good to have in one program. Also, you can use this program for your general accounting needs. This program can also help you do a cost-benefit analysis and a budget. Hence, you can use it for your business needs and for academic needs. It is a reliable program, so I have been able to consistently open and close my files according to my needs. I plan to continue to use the same program in the near future and up to 2 years into the future.

Cons: I have used the Student and the free versions of this product. If this product is over your budget you may need to consider other options. However, if you pay for it once, and if you are likely to use the same product for a fair number of years, then you can invest in this product. If your Windows operating system is the most advanced version, you have to make sure the Excel program will match the exact version of your operating system. So, if you plan to get a more advanced computer or laptop, you have to account for the cost of getting an Excel program that will work with it.

Pros: The industry standard spreadsheet Excel has made my life much easier. I use Excel at least 3 times a day. From organising my daily schedule, budgets, calorie charts to fulfill my academic errands of simple and complex arithmetic functions.

Excel has proved to be user friendly and is being constantly updated. The versatile functionalities of Excel has simplified even the complex tricky day today tasks. I find it very convenient that the information can be represented graphically, especially when being shared. The filter system in which information can be filtered using numerals, keywords comes very much handy during quick reference. The suggestions with keywords has simplified the use of Excel further and I found myself using it more often - not to mention the accuracy.

Excel can be installed in to your PCs, mac and even your android phones.

My life has become much easier with Microsoft Excel and I love it!

Cons: As much as Excel simplifies complex tasks, understanding certain complex functionalites of Excel is a great challenge.

I've messed up big time when it comes to dragging formulas over to a set of data or when copy pasting.

Further printing a spread sheet is very difficult, considering that the cell alignments and margins has to be repeatedly adjusted.

Sharing large Excel files is a challenge, which seems to be a drawback .

Excel should be modified as to being able to reset the password of protected files ; the lack of which is extremely inconvenient.

Overall: Handling the day today tasks has become very much easy for me. Why wouldn't it be? With Microsoft Excel hours of my day can be saved and yet the tasks could be done with utmost efficiency and asolutely accurate.

Excelling at the Game.

Pros: + Really easy to use. Some training might be needed to fully take advantage of its features.

+ Mistakes can be avoided really easily if you know how to use their formulas. You don't need to manually count and insert all the data by yourself, it's automated once you get the hang of it.

+ A lot of data visualization options to choose from. Data analysis is made simple with this, really useful if you have a plethora of data to work with.

+ There's a 'free-mium' online version available. It's essentially free but you can fork out some money if you want to purchase it (There are some differences between the free Online version and the retailed software, and they're all listed in Microsoft Excel Online's support documentation). The online version also allows the files to be shared to, and be editied multiple people, which is really useful if they are working on the same project in different areas where they are unable to get the files in person.

+ Integration with OneDrive (Microsoft's Cloud service) for both the online and retail version is available.

+ The business subscription deal isn't expensive considering it being bundled with other Microsoft Office applications.

Cons: - Spelling mistakes won't be auto-corrected like they do in Microsoft Word. It would a pretty useful feature if it's applied here.

- Lower end computers might have some difficulties working with spreadsheets that have a lot of data. Optimization could be better, especially how most office workstations do not have expensive hardware to work with.

Overall: Microsoft Excel is the total package, it's excellent for keeping data in spreadsheets. However, this is by no means a replacement for databases. Although the more basic functions of Excel is pretty straightforward and intuitive, the more advanced features do require the users to have a certain amount of training. Training on the other hand, is quite easy to come by, as a certified Microsoft Office Specialist myself (Office 2010), the training that is not as difficult as people say it is as long as you put in the effort to learn it, the benefits in terms of productivity is well-worth it. To me, in my opinion, Excel is at the top of the game when it comes to spreadsheet applications, other ones just don't feel as intuitive as Excel and that is where I feel Excel has the edge over them.

Pros: Microsoft Excel is one of the best software developed by Microsoft Corporation. This tool is easy to install and set up. It is a must have in any organisation for easy data manipulation and presentation. The following are some things I like about Microsoft Excel.

1. It is one of the best and globally recognized spreadsheet software. This therefore means that there enough support information and experts in case you need to learn how to use it effectively.

2. With Microsoft Excel it is easy to organize and manipulate data to suit your needs. This will make it easy to locate data, understand it and easily observe trends even without further analysis.

3. With Microsoft Excel it is easy to analyze data and present it in different forms. For example, you can use graphs. This makes it easy to understand data trends and also presentable.

4. For those using Microsoft Excel excel to analyse data like in our organisation, there are predetermined formulas that makes it effortless to analyze data.

5. Security wise, I like the fact that you can secure Microsoft Excel files with a password. This is a great feature more so when the office uses a shared computer.

7. I also like the fact that Microsoft Excel is available in mobile devices like smartphones and tablets. It is also available for both Mac and Windows

6. I also like the fact that there are constant updates that make Microsoft Excel better.

There is so much to learn about Microsoft Excel and am yet to learn all of them.

Cons: Well, even though there is not so much to hate about Microsoft Excel, I have 3 main concerns.

1. The software is very expensive. Not all businesses can afford the licence.

2. The Microsoft Excel files are very large and this require you to have a lot of space. This also makes it hard to share files.

3. I also hate the fact that Microsoft Excel is not easy to understand. There are many features that are not easy for the average person. However, when you understand these features, there is so much you can do with this software.

Overall: Well, my organisation have had a good experience using Microsoft Excel. With this tool, am able to organize data for presentation. When I need to observe data trends, it is easy to analyse the data using the predetermined formulas and other custom formulas. This tool makes it easy to handle my day to day work as an Engineer. I would recommend this tool to any organisation and more so those who wish to organise, analyse and present data. As far as my work is concerned, Microsoft Excel is my best friend.

Pros: I think I know Microsoft excel since I had my first computer in the 90's and since then it has been my favorite spreadsheet program. It has definitely evolved and improved over the years and now it has millions of functions that it did not have in the 90's and that make Excel the god of spreadsheets. Obviously you can do mathematical calculations associating cells, but it goes much further. You can generate charts of different formats from data from the spreadsheet, do complex calculations and format the sheet to improve its appearance, associate tables to documents or external links and print spreadsheets directly from Excel. It can be a bit overwhelming the first time you face it, but once familiar with the software, it becomes very easy and intuitive. In addition, the office help platform is great and has everything you need to take advantage of all the Excel functionalities to create maybe just a calendar to the organized calculation of your expenses and your monthly budget and the best thing is that you don't have to create the spreadsheet from scratch, because you can look for predesigned formats created by Office to enter up your monthly expenses, the programming of your daily activities, a record of attendances, a list of guests and more ...

Cons: I think it is still very difficult to format a spreadsheet to go from the computer to the paper. I would like them to improve the printing process, since many times I have had to print a document over and over again and modify the sizes of the cells in a trial and error process to achieve a finished product that is pleasant once printed.

Overall: I use Excel since the 90's. And as an engineer it is a vital tool for me, so much that I no longer only use it for my work, but I have created spreadsheets even to keep track of what is in my cupboard. Honestly, for me it is already natural to use Excel for any calculation of my daily life.

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: It has been long time working on Microsoft excel and I am really happy and satisfy with this application. It amazes me every time whenever its team adds new easy to use functions or features. When I started using Excel I was not really a perfect user of it but it did not take long to make me an excellent user. I mean to add this details here; it is a user-friendly product and no doubt nicely developed as well. It gives us very simple and easy ways for calculations and manages our accounting work very efficiently. I love the way it can access with formulas and once we apply then they work automatically. The features and the functions of Excel all bring easiness for all users, so why not I'll love to use this application.

Cons: It is the application which can be used for different purposes. It provides quality services and hardly has to let me have any issue. It would be nice if Excel adds some more easiness while making graphs and sharing our data information with that. It has already provided many templates for doing this work and they are really helpful too. But if they add more functions we will be able to organize graphs and dashboards in more advance way. The experience I have that does not keep any down side of this application.

Overall: There are many points where I have to realize that Excel is giving me much benefit. And it is not even giving me benefits but also saves my precious time while working because of its being an advance development. Overall I would say it is completely wonderful and perfect application I have ever used.

Pros: Excel is a software whose main function is the management of databases or the storage of accounting data or finacioneros of some entity or individual, what I like most about this application is that the presentation of the data can be aesthetic according to what is wanted, differentiating columns or rows with colors, and thus having a better understanding of the data that is handled there, you can also use commands and functions to avoid the manual calculation of data, this is something super functional for the time that saves and the efficiency and accuracy that you have with the data obtained. It is also quite useful when handling large amounts of data so that you can have everything organized, and avoid the loss of important data and finally something that I find very useful is that the results or data obtained in some worksheet can be calls to another to apply certain functions that are desired.

Cons: Although Excel is very good, it has some things that I do not like, one for example is that its use is a little complex, so the person who is going to use the software needs a tutorial to use it, and learn to perform the correct functions to obtain the data you want, besides that the files have to be a bit heavy and finally I do not like that it is usually believed that in Excel you can take absolutely all the information and this sometimes becomes a problem level of organization, and what could be a benefit can convent in a counter.

Overall: I want to clarify that in spite of the things that I do not like about excel, my experience with excel has been very, very good, having met all the expectations, and the demands that I have given, I have been useful to manage company content and also for the management of my personal finances, it has also been useful for me to have inventory controls to the department to which I belong in the place where I work and thus avoid problems of loss or theft.

Pros: Excel from the beginning has made life for anyone working any form of an administrative job much easier. To have a program that can organize schedules, budgets, cost analysis, and countless other tasks, it has made work like much more efficient and more organized.

I specifically have used excel for countless tasks, but most notable were a schedule built through excel for a rotating group of over 30 security officers, keeping track of appropriate training completions by certain employees, and even keeping attendance records. This was a revolutionary program while I was growing up.

Cons: Unfortunately, Excel seems to be falling by the wayside while other contenders have began stepping into the field. Where before, you would need at least a course or 2, maybe even certification in Excel to use it to its full potential, other programs now such as Google's version of Excel are much more user friendly and require less training to take advantage of its amazing abilities.

Overall: I have used Excel over the years for countless business solutions. Whether it be for a public safety job, or the restaurant industry, you can find a use for Excel in any business field. Making self updating schedules, monthly budgets, even including it in your personal life with Excel sheets for tasks around the house and what supplies are needed, or a monthly/biannual list of house maintenance.

This program has improved job proficiency around the globe, and thus deserves the respect for what its done. However, in order to stay relevant, Excel needs to update and grow with the environment around it.

Pros: There is virtually no limit to what Excel can be used for. One can make a simple list of action items for basic tasks, and then more experienced everyday users can create large spreadsheets to track company finances, experimental data, educational data, etc. Excel has a strong set of built-in functions to perform an array of mathematical functions.

The formatting options in Excel also allows users to create their own "visual-program" for colleagues to use. This involves table formatting, inputs, conditional formatting, and filters, to name a few.

The ability to trace dependents and precedents is also an extremely valuable tool when dealing with large amounts of data and complex formulas, and makes troubleshooting a lot easier!

Cons: The main drawback of Excel are the default graphing options. It is easy to spot an "Excel" graph, and professional reports typically avoid them. It would be great to see Microsoft update these default settings and provide better templates for plot creation.

It would also be useful to incorporate spell check into Excel.

Excel is not the most user-friendly program. It is an extremely powerful program, but requires at least a minimum amount of formal training to truly take advantage of its capabilities.

Overall: Excel is the quintessential spreadsheet and data processing software for all academic and professional applications. It's wealth of functions and capabilities makes it invaluable as a business and research tool.

Pros: Excel is the greatest for both casual and advanced users. The functionality of Excel is beyond everything else out there. Being able to program macros, being able to do data analysis and create tables, being able to open it across platforms, these are all just the beginning of what makes Excel so great. When you get Excel, you get a name brand you can trust, a program that can export and talk to other programs, and something that can perform robust database management for anyone who needs simple database capabilities. My vendors have developed complex workbooks with multiple tabs within them and sent them to me as a dynamic tool I can use again and again. I tried I tried using Mac's and Google's free versions but they really don't make the grade. I finally subscribed to Excel and I'm so glad I did. It's definitely worth the money and I'm never turning back.

Cons: I don't like the ribbon, and I wish the versions across Web, Mac and Windows were more alike. I'm in the minority in my profession on a mac, and so not only is it hard to explain what to do when I'm the phone with someone looking at the file I just sent them on a PC, but it is burdensome to have to re-learn how to do everything when I switch operating systems, or figure out how to do something quickly when I'm using the cloud version at an airport or on the go. Just pick an interface and make it identical across platforms!

Pros: I mean... If you haven't heard of Excel... You must have been living under a rock or something. I would go out on a whim and say almost all companies use Excel in one way shape or form, all companies besides maybe Apple...

Excel does essentially everything you want it to do with a spreadsheet. All the complex formulas you ever want to run, all the conditional formatting and sorting and filtering can be done. People even run programs out of Excel coding, I've seen games done on Excel. Literally anything and everything is being done on Excel. It is easily integrated amongst all major companies and used constantly. If you don't own Excel or don't know how to use it, it is about time.

Excel is also getting better with every release. They are making things simpler and making things look a lot nicer with way better graphics and optimization than how it was before. I believe they release a new version every two years and it's always equipped with major updates and upgrades. Charts are also wonderfully crafted in Excel along with the great pivot tables you can run.

Shortcuts are getting smarter and quicker as well.

Highly highly recommended for every company there that wants to store or configure any type of data or do any type of analysis, Excel is a MUST!

Cons: Absolutely no CONs. Excel is the top of the pedestal and there is simply no competition.

Overall: Excellent

Pros: The best part of Microsoft is that it let us arrange and organize a very huge data in the form of spreadsheets. One of the most interesting feature of excel is that it consists of cells and columns that helps to calculate data rapidly. It gives us proper access of working by the way we want to work on it. There are lots of nice functions which make our work more attractive and impressive. I like the way formulas works with excel it is unbelievable that we can develop the formulation we want.

It provides so much interesting functions they helps me while handling large number of data volume. What I think about Excel it does not let the errors reach the users, so that is the main reason of being completely satisfied with its services.

Overall: Overall I can say Microsoft Excel is playing vital role in all fields of life It helps me a lot in my business. We can create basic statistics as well spreadsheets in a very short time. Finally I would say this is the application which keeps much value in our lives.

Pros: I like many things about their abilities that are lost sight of, but perhaps one of the most I adore, is the possibility of molding my work in their cells and rows with a professional presentation quality. Another thing that I like most, is that the years go by and there is always something to learn when using Excel, I can go from formulas to present business images, to elaborate graphics for my clients. Definitely with Excel there are no limits, it contributes to increase the quality and organization of your work in a 100%, in addition, accounts with the support of Microsoft, so it is constantly updating and offering you new ways of seeing and linking your work with The new challenges that arise with each client.

Cons: A consolidated program like Excel has everything, and many people have surely contributed to its improvements, I think Microsoft should create a video series, which allows apprentices, all they can get by using this multi-purpose tool. This does not mean that it is a negative aspect, on the contrary, the greater the benefits that the weak aspects that you can find, without hesitation, is the market leader in this fascinating area of calculation, formulas, programming and more.

Overall: I have been using Excel since there is Windows 3.1, so I can give first-hand testimony about its evolution. I have found an important ally for the accomplishment of my daily tasks at work, in addition, I have learned over the years, other characteristics that continue adding an added value to my professionalism. Another thing that I like a lot, is that thanks to the almost infinite capabilities that Excel has, I can go teaching and learning from many people who know other positive elements that this tool has to offer. Currently there are many copies, but the original work far exceeds the imitations, is one of the many reasons why I recommend it to all my acquaintances and relatives.

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: 1) Excel is all about data, it performs a lot of athematic, logical and many other operations and formulas on N number of cells/data simultaneously.

2) One of the best feature is the inter link between sheets where when we make any change it reflects instantly and on all workbooks.

3) Automation purpose: We use excel in almost all automation testing process where we take or insert a lot of data. Excel is widely used for automation purpose as repository.

4) Management work: Excel includes a lot of interactive figures like pie charts, graph, hence we can use these figures to show when we are showing business resulted stuff like revenue, profits, costing etc.

5) Even for personal home use I use excel for storing data for various reasons like monthly budget, portfolio management for stock, share and crypto markets. Its password features always take care of my privacy.

Cons: 1) As it has a lot of arithmetic and mathematic formula but one really need a lot of time for learning.

2) Dynamic help is very less like we are trying to use average formula then excel itself does not give any hint to the user.

Overall: From Business point of view excel is saving a lot of time and efforts. Its diverse functionalities helps to almost all professionals. We use only excel when we need to store, extract data while working on automation tools and from management point of view we widely use its interactive charts and worksheet inter connection feature.

Pros: Quickly can explore and analyze datasets and model. Formulas are pretty straightforward and easy to learn. Hotkeys (Windows) are amazing and will cut down dramatically. Pivot tables, VLookups, etc., are all amazing tools that make understanding and evaluating information quick and easy. I've used Excel for years and find it a huge tool in my tookit when starting on a data science project that will, down the road, require far more coding and deep-diving. It also works as a small-scale option to build dashboards.

Cons: Hotkeys on Macs work terribly, and Mac functionality overall is limited compared to the Windows version. It can crash on computers without adequate RAM to handle larger data sets. A lot of visualization capabilities are excellent, but require weird, byzantine workarounds to implement ("To make a waterfall chart, make a hidden, invisible column for x to y, and then from y to z include your desired values, then align the hidden, invisible column....") type stuff.

Overall: I've used Exel inside-out and backwards-and-forwards at multiple positions: it's basically industry standard for financial, business, data, and systems analysts to be familiar with formulas, v and h-lookups, pivot tables, charts, etc. It's a solid, usable platform for basic math and data analysis, and for exploring small and mid-size datasets (<100k rows). Its performance relies heavily on computer hardware and therefore the better machine you have (RAM, processors), the better/more quickly your analysis will progress.

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 an easy to use software that has multiple tools and functionalities applicable in the financial, accounting, calculation and even in daily life. In addition, it is also useful for storing databases and for displaying graphics. One of its advantages is that it has multiple formulas called functions which meet in different categories such as mathematics, statistics, arithmetic, etc. Another advantage of Excel is that it allows us to prepare detailed reports of the data with which we are working and also allows several users to work simultaneously on the same document. What I like most about this software is that it offers multiple formats and grid characteristics.

Cons: One of the disadvantages of this software is that its price is a bit high, besides it is only compatible with Windows and Mac operating systems. On the other hand, it is a little inefficient in terms of space management since its files take up too much space. In addition, there is the possibility of unexpected errors that cause the closure of the program, which in turn generates the irretrievable loss of data.

Overall: It is a very useful and practical software, it is designed to perform multiple tasks in different areas, either in the office or in daily life. Excel has a fast, simple and effective interface that will allow us to perform activities in a much more efficient way, which reduces work times and increases the productivity of the organization.

Pros: I consider Excel a jack of all trades in regards to soft-ware used for data entry and analysis. The two main avenues of use have been in quality improvement and research analysis. The software does a great job and automating certain functions (such as being able to drag a date from one column to others and having subsequent columns updated in appropriate order). I also find that the most used calculations / analysis are easily accessible and have a fairly low learning curve in terms of application. Excel also makes it seamless to visualize data and has great options for export such as into powerpoint presentations.

Cons: The degree of functionalities that excel has is fairly robust and so are not as user-friendly as others. For more advanced functions I have had to sit down and take tutorials on how to execute them. At times when your formula or function does not work, excel does not have an easy way to trouble shoot. I would say that out of all the Microsoft suite applications excel probably takes the longest to get comfortable with.

Overall: In terms of collecting quality improvement data the software has been seamless and versatile. I work in a healthcare setting and track multiple parameters regarding patient and health-care provider metrics and flow. Excel allows me to easily customize my data inputs and provides versatility in presenting the data in a visually appealing way with multiple avenues of export such as powerpoint or PDFs.

Pros: I work daily in Microsoft Excel and there are too many things to like to name each of them. To name at least a few, I am very pleased with the amount of predefined functions, such as countifs, sumifs, vlookup, and match. These functions make data analysis, data set comparisons, and data set combinations a breeze. Handling large sets of data, I recently had to move most of my reports into Microsoft Access to process and I am only pulling the query results into Excel, which is easy to set up and must faster to update my reports.

Cons: Large sets of data, especially with formulas, require a lot of processing power and take very long to refresh or modify. Preventing the formulas from auto calculating does help, however, it also makes it more difficult to validate your work in between. Files significantly increase in size the more data you have in them making it impossible to email them back and forth or even opening them when not stored locally. Personally, I would like to see some improvements on the graph functionalities of Excel, as it is very difficult to plot data with target or goal lines in them. The workaround with a secondary axis does not always work for me, as I am already displaying two sets of data in one graph. Further, I would like to see easier ways on creating statistical charts, such as control charts to monitor process variations.

Pros: This software is powerful. I am able to use the formulas to automate calculations that could take me hours to do by hand. These formulas are easy to create as well. Also, importing data from various types of files can be done with the click of a few buttons. And with the advent of cloud technology, it's easy for me to work on my stuff from any computer, even my phone or tablet. Also, I can worth with others in a collabrative effort. Also, the ability to filter rows by column values is a handy feature when I'm trying to search for certain pieces of data.

Cons: When I'm editing formulas and I accidentally click on another cell, it will include that cell in the formula. I'm sure it's a nice feature, but I'd rather just type in the cell number I want, but that really is a small annoyance.

Overall: I use Excel in two contexts. First, I use it for business. As a programer in a bank data processing company, spreadsheets and databases are important for researching issues that come along. When i have to rustle up some calculations, Microsoft Excel is my goto program. I'm able to easily import data from a variety of files and I can easily compare the data I need, and then show it off to my collegues during review. On the personal side, I use it to do my checkbooks and budgets at home. It will automatically total my ledger with just a few simple formulas, and thanks to the cloud, either me or my wife can access it from any computer, even our phones. It sure beats having an old fashioned ledger.

Pros: Excel is a very useful program for people whose daily job is to handle a great variety of numeric data. It allows to use multiple functions and mathematical operations. It also allows you to create customized spreadsheets or systems. It has no limits in the calculations you can make. Easily knowing the correct formula and how to use it is enough to operate this program. With a few basic tools of its operation you will be able to understand how it works in a short time.

Cons: Like any program to use it at its maximum functionality, you must know all the tools it has in depth. Excel is complex in the functions it can handle if you have never used this type of program. If you are a person of graphing many things or of interpreting graphs, it is not recommended that you use excel, it has limited functions in this sense. You must know some mathematical tricks to complete these functions that the program can not perform.

Overall: Usually I use Excel to do the statistical and mathematical treatment of experimental data in the physics and chemistry laboratory practices. Generalemnte I perform simple operations of average, deviation and some customized formulas for the calculation of certain variable. I use it frequently to graph and analyze mathematical functions and their behavior, since Excel easily identifies the equation of the line or curve associated to the data that you graph, this facilitates and speeds up the handling of a great variety of numerical data.

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.

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: This software has been around for quite some time but it is ever-advancing and I love that it is now easier than ever to quickly apply the formulas and tables for tasks. The software has added button features that allow you to easily choose which function is best suited for what you need, and it even has a small pop-up bubble that explains what each equation, function, or table are best for. Even new users or users who are a bit rusty with the program can utilize the software's tips and help section to produce a quality spreadsheet.

Cons: The only thing I dislike about the software is the way sometimes the text overflows into the next box. There is a feature that allows the user to turn that off or prevent it, however, it is not always easy to find especially for new users. I believe a tutorial when first opening this program that would provide the user with a brief summary of all the features and functions would prove quite helpful.

Overall: Currently, with my work I have only been utilizing this program for data entry. I feel like with the ability to use a function that recognizes duplicates, this program is perfect for the type of job I am currently working on as it allows me to see if I have more than one of the same link within my data. Excel has proven to be useful for various types of purposes for me ranging from data entry, bookkeeping, and inventory management. It is a great program that is very versatile.

Pros: Excel is the professional spreadsheet program. Love this tool for its uncountable benefits. It has made daily work so easy. I do not just use for office purposes I do use for personal budget handling It always keep me up to date with ups and downs. I can accomplish numerous tasks within minutes because of its formulations and easy to use features. It has made complicated calculations really easy by applying a few formulas. Here is the thing that I like most that is templates which are really beautifully per-designed and bring easiness for the Excel user.

Cons: Microsoft improves Excel in every version and brings easy ways of doing work on this tool. But the problem is that what I have to face sometimes, when I work with a large number of data and shift the stuff each file to other file its program goes hang and that time it looks unpleasant when I have to wait for running the program again. Some of the times I had to face loss of my data which I had written by hand. Well I am not against of the Excel I just have that complain with this program. I am sure that I will be getting a better solution for this issue, because I trust on Excel team.

Overall: Microsoft Excel is most frequently use tool for performing accounting as well as data base calculations. Being versatile Excel is being used at any area of work that maybe from school to office and proved to be helpful.

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: Excel is an extraordinary software is really good, I think it is important that all types of companies use this platform, it allows to create diversity of formulas, to have enough complete files.

Its interface is interesting, I would say that it is a bit difficult to understand but it is a matter of practice, it has many functions.

In my case I like the part of the graphics quite like the dynamic tables, I think that you get very good results and quickly, you maintain a good order and everything feels easier within the organizations, each one has different functions and therefore everyone can use it according to their functions and objectives.

Excel every day improves more and more are the new things that are learned

Cons: I consider that a great disadvantage of this Sofftware is its price, sometimes it is not reusable, being accessible for all the companies but it is something really important.

Another point of view that I consider negative from my experience is that the files are really heavy and at the time of sending them they usually take an eternity something that sometimes bores

Overall: The experience has been good I already have an extensive career using excel and although I know other software even more expensive and more complete I prefer the more traditional, I think I'm married to excel to say it in a certain way

Pros: The customization of Excel allows for endless possibilities of formatting and design. With some simple planning and a little bit of dedication early on, one can set up an entire spreadsheet to do most, if not all, the work for you and easily organize, quantify, and highlight within the spreadsheet. This makes presenting the data that much easier and more appealing than having to sort through the entire spreadsheet. Most people today are very familiar with Excel and have at least a basic understanding of it so it is almost universally accepted.

Cons: While true that most know to use Excel basically, there is still a very large number of people who do not use it to the full potential. Despite the functionality, many still use only the bare-bones layout do not venture into creating their own functions or conditional formatting. They also won't always link data within the different sheets in a single work book which means you'll be entering data manually when it could very easily be done automatically. This can frustrating in a work environment if a more proficient user isn't creating or managing the spreadsheet.

Overall: Mine has been an overwhelmingly positive experience. I have learned the more advanced tricks and tools which makes my spreadsheets more functional and faster. I use it almost daily in my professional and personal life.

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.

This is one of the best tool I have used for my data analysis, reporting, forecasting and other data analysis requirements. You can use the ability to use various operations including logical, mathematical, representational graphs techniues for your reporting.

Best software to maintain data and then extract the information.

You can share the information very easily on various platforms including Android and IOS. Best thing I would like to mention of this software is its compatibility with various other open source softwares and even with the web connected apps and softwares.

Definitely one of the best software for performing various operations on data to extract required information.

Cons: Not many cons I can think of but yes of the cons is it's competition's open source software which are available for almost free of cost and can handle most of the tasks that one can perform using MS Excel.

Yet I would say this is the best software for your data analysis requirements.

Overall: I am using this software for all my data analysis requirements including on various platforms such as MS Windows and Android.

I will continue to use this software for all my data analysis projects.

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.

Also, this tool supports all kinds of data types, can create multiple excel sheets within an excel workbook and much more.

It is highly reliable in terms of security being a Microsoft product and calculations between worksheets and within a worksheet helps a person save loads of time and money.

A great must have tool for everyone, to help visualize data in a better and professional manner.

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: Excel has that coveted quality of being both simple and easy to use for a novice, and yet also able to perform complex functions in the hands of a master. Thanks to just its longevity and position as the standard in office spreadsheet software alone, Excel has a huge collection of user-submitted tutorials online for anyone to easily teach themselves how to use its more advanced features. I love using it to not only create spreadsheets for use in the office, but at home as well to create detailed lists of sports statistics and keeping track of our household finances.

Cons: Two major criticisms:

1) Over the years Excel has seen various versions and releases. Depending on what version any particular computer has on it, not all features will translate from one version to the other when you try to open one document on a computer you're using for the first time.

2) The fact that Excel is now part of the Microsoft Office 365 suite of programs. Once upon a time Microsoft Office was just this software suite you bought with Word, Excel, Powerpoint, and a few others. It had a ridiculous price tag, but it was a one-time purchase. Now you have to have a subscription to keep it running, which is really just more expensive in the long run.

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

Overall: A magnificent experience falls short, there are many things that have facilitated me and that I have also learned with the use of this great software that is fundamental for me

Pros: Excel is the software that I have used the most in my life. Since the beginning of my student career in the area of accounting and taxes, Excel has been my number one ally.

This software has simplified my performance in the construction of databases related to tax matters. Collections, taxes, business accounting, performance formulas, arithmetic means, development of differences and comparative graphs, complete tax analysis among other tools that only Excel has been able to provide me.

Already in my professional career and in the company where I currently work, I have used Excel in an improved way for all kinds of tax analysis and tax collection, using all its tools in a productive way.

Cons: It is a software that is permanently exceeded, leaving in each update perfectionist elements, which make it the best tool for the construction and analysis of databases in the market, therefore, I have no negative comments or discontent with this software.

Overall: Excel is one of the most complete software in the market for database construction and analysis. Thanks to the you get unique elements that in one way or another will enhance your professional development and that of the company where you work.

Acquiring this software will only bring profits to your business development.

Pros: The thing that I like the most about the Excel software (part of the Microsoft Office Suite, which is the industry standard) is that there seems to be way to do almost anything with the data that you import into the spreadsheet. With a wide array of mathematical and logical functions built in to the program, you can easily do simple tasks such as adding up and averaging data, to more advanced tasks such as creating pivot tables and dashboards from the data to display it in a variety of meaningful and functional ways for analysis. It is not lacking for any feature that I can think of.

Cons: The thing that I like the least about Excel is its learning curve. I'm still what I would consider a beginner user, even though I have used Excel both personally and professionally for over 15 years. I've created full-on billing spreadsheets for a general contracting company (where certain percentages of different parts of each job would have to be tracked and billed out at those percentage rates), as well as used it for more simplistic tasks like managing data such as rosters in a neat, readable format. I've even taught myself how to use pivot tables and turn those into easily readable dashboards for a job interview that required that knowledge. That said, I feel like I've still only barely scratched the surface of functions that can be handled by Excel, which can make it a bit overwhelming to learn the program to an extent that you feel comfortable calling yourself even an intermediate user. I appreciate that it is so powerful, but it also makes it a bit intimidating!

Pros: Microsoft excel let you create edit review your files and business or working documents easily from your device and let you create your own spreadsheet for accounting and calculating you can now easily open and edit the documents sent to you by emails and not only that you can share there files with other people or u can invite them to edit the files it also has a lot of tools that help u in editing and creating documents with the columns and auto sort option your data is easily managed and you are really focused at your work.

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: The Microsoft Excel can be used for any data entry works. It can be used from basic data processing such as calculating the total, average, tax to advanced data processing such as drawing graphs, advanced financial statistics, etc. Further, it has all the equations we use for the calculations and statistics. The MS Excel can be referred to as a data entry tool, statistics tool, a big table and many more. We use MS Excel for many different types of works such as student recording, calculator, marks processor, graph creator, etc. The conditional formatting available in Excel is a great feature where it automatically indicates the indicators (Maximum, minimum, below average, above average, equal to something, etc) very nicely.

Cons: The IF statement on Excel has a maximum length. Further, the Mailings tab available in MS word is not available in MS Excel. And formatting the tables is not similar to the MS word. Moreover, It is a bit hard to use the advanced features without knowing the usage of equations in MS Excel.

Overall: Even though some features need to be modified, MS Excel is a great tool for any type of data entry works. Further, it can be formatted nicely and almost all the formatting and calculations can be automated using MS Excel.

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.

Pros: Excel is the most interesting and beneficial application for everybody. It provides opportunities for designing formats of our own choices. I love its simple interface that fascinates people belonging to various professions. Excel is the easy to use tool and learn. The most important thing that I would like to share here is the smart art function that is really fantastic. We can add different kind of already designed shapes that is awesome. Every kind of calculation is possible on Excel. It has a lot of things that shows we are using a advance technology application.

Cons: It is a bit difficult for me to find cons in Excel, because it has been giving satisfying results since I started using it. It fulfills the work requirements and works immediately on all complains. I have been using Excel and all of the applications of Microsoft office, they all are going fantastic. One thing that I would like to add that It would be great if Excel adds some designed dashboards that we can add in our file and do not have to design and waste time on making dashboard.

Overall: It is the most advance application which is used to preform huge amount of calculations immediately. It is no doubt complete software that let us keep data secure in spreadsheets.

I have spent more than three years using excel in the professional field, I really like it a lot and I think I learned a lot, at first I only knew the basics and I used it in very easy things.

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.

In my case, an engineer always uses excel and since I use it everything has been made easier for me, it is incredible and it is recommended in a 10 out of 10.

I like it when there are new updates, it always comes with new and very useful things

Cons:

I really like excel and in my medium and short career using it I think that this software has exceeded my expectations, so I do not have negative things to say, on the contrary positive things always

Overall:

Extraordinary, it has been one of the best software that I have learned to use and more in the field of work, there are many benefits that I have obtained from it.

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

Pros: The immense flexibility and usefulness of Excel is what I liked the best. While not a database specifically, it is a fantastic way to teach and learn database concepts and data management. It allows for quick and easy manual analysis of data and information, and can accomplish a variety of tasks. I've worked for agencies that used it as their primary time-tracking system. I've also seen Excel used to accomplish roster/check-in tasks. The large, online support community and how-to articles/videos make just about any Excel project possible. Because of this, I feel basic competence in Excel is a must-have-skill for any employee

Cons: The only elements I found least liked would be the maximum row limit (for data processing, though it makes perfect sense tech/capacity wise) and some limitations in user options (such as creating drop-down boxes or other developer-ribbon style tasks. However, that really isn't the main function or purpose of Excel, so it can't be faulted for these limitations.

Overall: Excel provided an excellent foundation in data management and data analysis. Because of it's flexibility and power, we were able to use it to keep "hard-copy" records used in other databases and reports, saving a lot of work in the process.

Pros: What I like most about this software is the wide variety of possibilities it offers for the realization of calculations of different types and in general, for data processing, allowing the application of mathematical, accounting, statistical procedures among many others quickly, facilitating the organization and analysis of data, in addition to allowing the incorporation of elements such as graphics and images that are very useful for the presentation of data. In general, I consider it an excellent tool for recording and managing data, and it is relatively light for the number of functions it has.

Cons: I consider that this software is an excellent and very useful tool in different areas, according to my experience the most important limitation of it, is that because it is a software with so many tools and functionalities, is necessary to review its documentation or have a prior training to be able to use it, otherwise it may be difficult to understand how it works.

Overall: I use excel daily to record the activities I do in my work, keep track of equipment inventories, make activity schedules, and mathematical calculations about project data, financial operations among others, in a simple, fast and professional way.

Pros: A software of the oldest, with a great trajectory and that has been present in all our labor development, Excel accompanies and culminates each one of our projects. I mention this because thanks to Excel we can fulfill functions as important for our labor organization as it is to generate databases of our cultors, actors, actresses, schedules of works and events, payroll of each of the members of our events and works among other functions. In general, Excel is the most complete spreadsheet and the favorite of our workers, and is almost mandatory in our work environment, a software with much accumulated experience that demonstrates very well in each of its updates and new tools.

Cons: One of the central problems we have with this software is that it is easy to use but in a basic mode. If we want to exploit all the qualities of this great software is necessary to make specialization courses for use, and this is because it has many tools that put into practice in our work environment, greatly optimizes our performance in creating databases. I recommend this software but I also recommend that you do a training course to use it to its maximum capacity.

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.

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!

Pros: I work in buying, and every quarter have to tabulate post performance reports for several clients. Excel allows me to quickly put all of the estimated and actual performance data into one easy to use spread sheet and calculate just how everything performed. This is a report that needs to be shared with multiple people at my company, in addition to the client and the people they report to. Once you get a hang of how to properly add the formulas you need, it really makes data collection painless. In the instance in which I use it the most, we need to put several shows together, along with several stations and know how everything did in multiple weeks and dayparts. Excel is definitely the most effective way to bring all of this information together.

Cons: The only problem I have is that sometimes moving one cell can really mess with your formulas, and you need to pay very close attention. Most things are very intuitive, but sometimes the way you need to get through a specific function seems unnecessary.

Overall: For the types of reports I regularly have to put together, I cant imagine there is another program that is as effective as Excel.

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.

Pros: Best software that can be used for organizing my schedules. It can be used for performing several functions ranging from simple to complex. It consists of versatile functionalities that help a lot in simplifying complicated tasks. Another advantage of using Excel is that it can be installed easily into our PC's, mac and also in our android phones. I would say it is absolutely complete software if one wants to keep data in spreadsheets. It is extremely easy to use and user friendly too. Numerous formulas of Excel let us complete most of our tasks to accomplish within short time so in this way save our time as well as energy.

Cons: Excel is no doubt the best ever software I have ever used with no negative aspects indeed. Sometimes hurdle comes while sharing large files of Excel. This is the only drawback I hardly find. Except this it works so nicely. I have nothing to complain about this awesome software.

Overall: Overall I would say Excel is the wonderful invention of Microsoft Corporation. If one wants to track certain items then Excel is probably the best ever choice. It is right to say that Excel fulfills all are academic as well as business needs in a best way.

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: Excel has definitely got to be the software I probably use the most. I am able to create elaborate spreadsheets that capture, sorts and filters data time series data and the present that data in an understandable fashion for those who aren't familiar with the more intricate functions of excel. As someone who deals with capturing and analyzing over multiple worksheets and workbooks Excel is absolutely useful in helping discover trends and patterns in the data which ultimately means better decision making. I use the VBA function to automate so many things which is a huge time saver. I can go on and on about the many benefits excel has provided me. Excel also has built into it so many templates to get simpler tasks done from creating a calendar to cards to budget and even to-do lists. There really is benefit for persons at all skill levels.

Cons: I think there can be a wider range of graphs and customization but the current has served me well so far though.

Overall: Creating spreadsheets from scratch can be time consuming but once set up and automated to complete tasks the long terms benefits in terms of time save is wonderful.

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: I think Excel is one of the best programs ever created. It is pretty easily the most versatile program I have ever used. Excel makes it easy to automate tasks and convey data in a simple, straightforward manner, regardless of the situation. If you are willing to put forth the effort to learn the ins and outs of this program, you will be amazed at how often you will find yourself saying "wait, I can do this in Excel!"

Cons: As I alluded to in the "pros" section, the greatest weakness about Excel is that there's almost TOO much going on, and it can be hard to figure out how something works within the program. However, this is never that major a concern, as there are numerous forums and websites online dedicated to explaining Excel. I have never been stumped for long before finding out how to accomplish what I set out to in Excel.

Overall: I use Excel on a daily basis for my job. When I started, I had several years of casual experience in Excel, but my current position has forced me out of my comfort zone and into learning how numerous features within the program work. Through this I have discovered how many facets there are to Excel, and I know there is TONS that I still don't know how to use.

Pros: This was the first software I learnt about after the introduction part of the computer packages. Since then excel became life to me. I use it everyday in the office to perform complex computations, generate charts from data and also improving the sheets appearance. As a manager, it helps me organize a big volume of data for making presentation like graphs. I also use it tracking daily records financial reports for consultants sent outside for work. It does not require strong internet connection as it is stable. I used it back in University when doing my project for statistical sampling . I like Microsoft excel since it is available world wide.

Cons: Sometimes it is difficult to move files to a different device with different resolution. The file might not open and the graphs lose their dimensions. The price for licensing is quite high hence not favorable for a small scale investor.

Overall: Honestly, Excel is a life safer. It makes it easy to keep data in an organized way for easy retrieval. It keeps upgrading making it user friendly. This application has improved job accomplishment. It is a comfortable software and it must be available in all companies.

Pros: When it comes to creating spreadsheet workbooks, there is no better software than Microsoft's Excel! It is the most powerful spreadsheet software there is.

The face thing you'll notice as soon as you open it is the list of readymade templates it offers, which can be quite useful if you're a beginner and do not know how to present and manage your data.

The user interface is easy and simple to understand. I absolutely adore the way it facilitates calculations by providing in-built formulas and also with the option to create different formulas by using combinations as per the user's need.

It has a lot of powerful functions like pivots, macros, varieties of graphs and options to insert audio video files.

It is up to you to decide how much you can get out of Excel. Because throw anything at it and it will get it done.

Cons: Buying the license is paying a heavy price and generally isn't suited for personal and end user.

At first, if a user is not well known to the world of cells columns and rows, Excel might seem a little complicated but with time, one gets used to it.

Pros: Excel is one of the great software that I use frequently. It provides the great services. It is the best tool for accounting, budgeting and reporting. It has the interesting features, which can be used easily. It has outstanding functionality. The thing I like most about excel has great method of applying formulas. We can set the formulas and handle the reports the way we want to handle. It is a little difficult to learn formulas for new user but once a user starts using can become expert in very short time. I can simply say, it is an easy to learn as well as easy to use application.

Cons: I have been using Microsoft office all tools for years and have become an expert of using excel. When I started using excel, it created some issues but now it is working great. There is nothing negative for writing in cons. It provides easy ways of handling accounting. As Microsoft provides great services for other apps, same services are being provided.

Overall: For the business use it is very helpful app that gives really great services. Its features are professionally developed. What I think about Excel is playing a great role in my daily work.

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: I love excel! I am a home builder and I also own several rental properties. Excel integrates into my Quickbooks account program as well as my Quick for Rental Properties Software. I also create various spreadsheets to use independently for both programs. Excel also helps me with my customer database management. I receive hundreds of leads when I attend trade shows. These are entered into Excel and can be sorted and organized with a few clicks. Lastly, Excel has hundreds of pre-made templates for every industry you can think of. Therefore, if you don't have time to create your own, simply do a search in their built in template database and you will find what you need.

Cons: I guess the thing I like least about excel is the initial learning curve. The software is very intuitive but if you do not have much computer experience, you may find it a little intimidating until you learn the little tricks. A book like Excel for Dummies will guide you in the right direction.

Overall: I use Excel every day and love the software. It is easy and helps me do everything from basic calculations to data sorting.

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.

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

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: This program does everything that I want it to do. I'm dyslexic, I use this program as a calculator on a daily basis, that way I can go back and check to make sure I did not flip any numbers around and if I did it's easy to make one correction and now my total is correct without having to re add the numbers again. Excel is much more than that, I use it for templates for bidding and invoicing. I have created templates so that all i have to do is put in a few numbers and the worksheet does the rest.

Cons: If you do not know the formula that you are wanting to use sometimes this makes it a little harder to make your spread sheet. Customer service on the program does not teach you this program. You have to learn in a classroom setting. I have also found some help sites by just Googling my questions.

Overall: I use this program for everything. It helps me out on a daily basis. It helps to keep my work accurate. This program for basis use is very simple which is a plus. I have also taught other people what I have learned along the way. There are so many short cuts and different ways to get the same answers. Overall its a great product.

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: What I like most about this software is the versatility and ability to create large spreadsheets of data that can very easily be filtered and manipulated. Tabulating data is not something that is very impressive for a software to achieve in today's computing world, but being able to filter the data, sort it in different ways, and transfer this data is one of the strongest points of this software for me.

Cons: What I like least about this software is the lack of ease of availability of formulas. I have been using MS Excel for many years and have generally found that the formulas are very effective, but information on the type of formulas avaible within the program itself is not so readily avaivble. I feel that these formulas should be clearer and possibly "showcased" a bit more such that they might be utilized more commonly.

Overall: Overall, I have had a very positive experience using MS Excel. I have used it in various capacities ranging from as a basic formula sheet for computations to the software I use for monthly reports. It is a great tool and I feel that in the work enviornment I am in, it is invaluable and a very neccessary tool.

Excel is the best spreadsheet software on the planet, and that is coming from a mac user!

Pros: Excel the industry standard on spreadsheet software. I love how feature rich it is. I word as engineer and I've never found an application where excel delivers (and if it doesn't deliver there are tons of plug-ins from third parties). Visual Basic has become a power tool in arsenal when I need to automate a lot of calculations and create macros. The macro record tool is one of my favorite.

Cons: There's been a couple of instances where I haven't been able to find a feature I've been looking for. In most instances I've found a data plugin that has taken care of the problem. Nonetheless finding the plugin is time consuming below are 2 examples of plugins that have solved my issues:

XY chart labeler: allowed me to add label to data points on an XY chart.

Sigma Zone: Quantum Pro XL has allowed to easily create histograms and distribution charts.

Overall: I've used Excel both a work and school. At work I use Microsoft Excel to create mechanical models, analyze and process data, optimize and use goal seeking routines. At school I've develop but business and financial models. Excel has been in my learning of accounting principles.
