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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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: 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: 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: 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: It allows me to make any kind of tables, which I can then use to process and represent information.
My knowledge in this program is very basic, but I have been able to take advantage of it and it is very useful to locate information, create forms, this is an unlimited tool you can do many things to do programs, of course I do not have that level of knowledge.
Another thing that has is that you can make self-executing or dynamic tables, graph information in multiple ways and that are updated when you modify the data, it is very interesting.

Cons: It is not so easy to learn to use this program, it is a very good tool but learning to use it deserves to dedicate time.
Putting alphabetical data in cells is complicated as a word processor, it is somewhat cumbersome.
When printing a document or table is somewhat complicated by the issue of setting the margins, you have to be careful about this.

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

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

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

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

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

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

It's my passion.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Pros: From simple tasks such as keeping a list of students' grades to more complex tasks such as projecting financial statements, excel facilitates the development of any work related to numbers.

The possibility of inserting own equations and using the formulas that are already incorporated into the program, makes complex work easy.

It has a menu of incredible options for graphics and it is very easy to import and export data from other programs, as well as combining different files for the same job.

Cons: Excel is such a broad program that it is not easy to make the most of all the capabilities it has. There are commands that are not as intuitive as one would wish.

I think it is essential to do an excel course to be able to get the most out of this extraordinary tool.

Overall: It has facilitated the work of calculations and graphics, saving me a lot of time and minimizing possible errors.

Pros: It is very easy to use, and the graphs look nice. The macros are easy to set up to save time on repetitive tasks, and it is fairly intuitive to use. However, the graphs all have the 'Excel' look on them, so for publication we use a different software package.

Cons: You cannot integrate/differentiate easily within this package. This would be a useful feature which they have not added, and I had to formulate my own sheet to do integration which wasted a lot of time. Sometimes when you click on something it does not do what you were expecting. Any graphs that you produce you can instantly tell were made in excel.

Overall: We are able to plot our data from experiments easily, and to show our work to supervisors / other researchers. It is easy to save all of our data to keep it well organised, and is universally used throughout industry so that you can share data between people easily, both externally and within the organisation.

Pros: Excel has excellent tools that are necessary for working in a corporation. For a part, in my job it is necessary to carry databases of distribution of gas in bulk, the routes through which that gas will be distributed and the profit that each of these processes generates. Excel, thanks to its logarithmic tools, its formulas that combine cells, its comfortable and efficient data base that is combined with graphs, sequential and other operations, make it a titan of specialized software in databases

Cons: Not any beginner can handle exceln without first doing different types of courses to exploit the full potential of this software

Overall: Microsoft, in its effort to create quality software for different environments, has created excel endowing companies with a solid tool for internal organization through databases with multiple add-ons, to present better information and quality.

Pros: In excel you can develop what you want, from databases to small systems that help you with the control of your accounting, financial runs very quickly applying macros that perform the calculations automatically. The potential that this software has, multiple pre-established functions or others that can be developed is very wide.

Cons: I have almost no cons of this program, because it has been a great help for many years. Maybe, it would be just how slow the computer can turn when you run a very large macro, but that's mostly because of the ability of the PC

Overall: Excel has helped me since I was in college, especially doing the audit worksheets. Currently, in my work it is still the office tool that I use the most, an example of this, is that we develop a financial run with macros, which performs the calculations automatically, streamlining our work

Comments: If I can't figure out how to do something, I just search on Google or Youtube for how to do it. Since Excel dominates the marketplace, there is always someone out there who knows how to help you with a custom function or step-by-step guide.

Pros: I'm not a numbers person, and I love excel. That is saying a lot. Without Excel, I would be lost. Excel is like a calculator, notepad, and organizer in one. At least, that is how I use it. I use it for personal (creating finance spreadsheets, organizing party details, etc) and for work (I'm in marketing, so I use it for data collection, data organization, customer contact information, etc). There is so much you can do with Excel. And other "Excel-like" programs do not live up to Excel. Google Sheets comes close, but all others fail miserably. Couldn't do life without Excel.

Pros: What I like most about Excel is that I can turn a simple spreadsheet into a multi-function work tool that can perform many tasks, save me hours of work, manage huge amounts of data, and finally become my work presentation by adding graphs, charts, images, and embedded drawings into it. There is a function command available for almost any data handling requirement you can imagine: vlookups, sumifs, sort data, remove duplicates, etc.

Cons: In the last version like 365 there is some kind of a lag between the moment you drag and drop objects, or move the spreadsheet along your desktop; it may be attributed to the program being really on-line? (maybe)

Overall: Time saving, creation of working tools, using it for presentations, interconnect files to share contents between them.

Pros: Excel allows for the collection, organization, and analysis of data. Once data is collected, revelant data can easily be isolated with the use of pivot tables. Data can also be created with the copious amounts of formulas Excel provides. The most useful are basic math (+,-,×,÷), vlookups, and if/and statements. Excel is very user friendly and allows for any novice user the ability to partake in its basic functionalities. It is useful both in the business world and personal use.

Cons: To appreciate Excel's functions at the highest point possible, one must have some additional training. This may include solo playing around with the software, or taking a class. But once all functions are understood, the knowledge is extremely valuable.

Be it renaming file folders using a macro, or just creating a data base to house customer information.

Cons: Sometimes I get a little carried away and I have been known to bog down the program with too much. I wish it was able to handle just a little more. That isn't to say that it doesn't handle a LOT, just that I push it to it's limits and I wish its limits were a littler higher.

Overall: Not only do I manage my own business with this software, but it is what my business is based on. Outside of my full time job, I also run a small LLC where I build and maintain Excel spreadsheets for businesses.

Pros: Excel is the go to choice of spread sheet software at my workplace. It integrates and works well within the environment (Sharepoint, Skype for Business etc). It's also nice that most people have grown up with some exposure to Excel so even novice computer users can open and understand the most basic features.

Cons: The learning curve from absolute beginner Excel user to mediocre user is pretty steep for some people. Most people know how to enter value into cells and do some quick formulas, but beyond that you really have to go outside excel to get help. Google Sheets is really nice that once you start to write a formula, a tool tip appears with good, clear help. Excel seems to be missing this (at least in 2010 version I use).

Pros: Whether you're in sales, marketing, tech or whatever job, I really think that being able to use Excel is an absolute advantage over those who do not. This is something that's not very easy to learn at first but the moment I realised how much I can do with the data I input, I became really passionate about it. Knowing the difference between having data and actually processing/automating data using Excel can spell the difference between growth and stagnation in whatever you're working in, especially if it's sales/logistics and customer data!

Cons: It can take a while to learn. Some of the features are not blatant at all, and you need to search for it or ask others to get the most of everything Excel offers.

Cons: Although the software can be used for research and add on for statistics and econometrics are available they are very basic. for such analysis one has to look for alternate softwares. Also the graphs are not very user friendly. however I consider this software to be rather amazing for what it can do.

Overall: i use this software for analyzing almost anything. so the benefits are countless

Pros: It seems that anything you might want to do with numbers, there is a way with Excel to accomplish your goals. It is an incredible powerful spreadsheet with more options than you can keep up with. I only use it for the basics of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, but it is fast and accurate. The layouts, charting, and formatting are extensive.

Cons: I am not a fan of renting software, so I own the standalone version on a Mac. The versions for both platforms do not seem to be the same, with the PC version having more capabilities. The program seems bloated and the interface doesn't easily allow you to figure out how to accomplish your goals. I use it daily, but I can't say that I enjoy the experience.

Cons: There's a fairly steep learning curve before achieving maximum use from Excel. This is at least supplemented by countless tutorial articles all over the internet, however.

The graphics in excel are also very good and above all easy to use.

Cons: There's no way I do not like Excel. The weight of some files can be emulated without containing too much information. But I can certainly recommend this microsoft tool extensively

I use Excel on a daily basis in different situations, not only for the numerical calculation, it is a software that allows to elaborate graphs and numerical reports, as well as to create registers, lists, forms and graphs, and the list continues facilitating the different tasks in an organization

Pros: Excel is the best spreadsheet software available, and in my opinion is the most important software for any company. It has so many pre programed functions that help in almost every need from finance calculations to engineering data management, and if that wasn't enough it has the freedom to be programmed for customization just by having a little VBA knowlegde. I highly recommend it for everybody,.

Cons: There is no big con to microsoft excel, perhaps the fact that when running a macro it can take a lot of processing power for them to run correctly, but it depends on the complexity of the code.

Pros: Since my beginnings in the use of the computer I have used Microsoft's office tools, one of them is Excel, which over the years has evolved offering advanced features and new components for the creation of your spreadsheets.
Excel is proprietary software that allows you to create, edit and protect your spreadsheets. With it you can make reports that include tables, graphs, calculations (complex, simple, with conditions, with mathematical functions) and images, among others. Additionally it offers Macros, which are components to create your own applications in excel and in this way to make more interactive the use of your infomes.
It is ideal for any area of study, however in the financial and accounting area is where this application is used to the maximum.

Cons: Excel is a complete and functional application I have no comment against this tool is an advantage to use it.

Overall: In the university I have used it frequently to make statistical reports for which it is an ideal tool.

Pros: I have been working on Microsoft Excel from 2001. So, a very long time and MS Excel has helped me a lot in my student and professional life. As I have been invited to show students reports, whether they are on their rates or any other data that I could appreciate and recall. This is the most widely used software and it is very easy to make report.

Cons: It is hard to learn though for a beginner but nowadays, tutorials do exist for everything on the internet or YouTube to be so much more specific. Also, Excel have a lot of details that can make your life easy. However not everybody knows about it

Pros: It's easy to create simple charts and tables, but also easy to deal with more complex functions. When compiling different sets of information, easy features like the "show duplicates" formatting help immensely. Pivot tables are easy and help breakdown information.

New upgrades have made excel more intuitive and easy to use.

Cons: Excel cannot sort or order by conditional formatting - if you select the option to show duplicates, you cannot then order the formatted/duplicate cells. That having been said, I am not sure if there is a spreadsheet software that has such functionality.

Pros: If you are working with any sort of data collections, you need this software (or at least something similar). Excel is your basic spreadsheet and data visualization and manipulation interface. You can lay out tables and sheets, use all sorts of stock formulas, turn your data into graphs, etc.

Cons: It's a Microsoft product so you must rely on their extensive user base for support or go through their garbage support process.

Pros: The ability to manipulate data is excellent.

The best thing is one can have templates for their graphs and write short scripts within the software to automate tasks.

Cons: The software becomes pretty slow while handling large data sets and generating graphs. This makes data processing slow.

Overall: I learnt a lot about data processing, writing formulas, making graphs and writing scripts in this software.

Pros: What you can do with excel is basically endless. I think that the keyboard shortcuts they have set up are well thought out. It is easy to navigate between different sheets and data.

Cons: I think that the "help" and search feature is not very powerful and could be very much improved by AI. Whenever there is something I am not sure I can do and want to search to find out instructions, it never knows what I am looking for. I usually have to go to google to type it in and figure out the specific jargon that the microsoft search is looking for.

Pros: The use of the formulas are powerful when working with large sets of data. Using the tables in Exel coupled with the tabs by simply clicking inside the data is perfect when modifications are necessary.

Cons: The automatic save disables features with no sign that the file has limited abilities. For example, the program freezes gives the file a new name. If, there is no save and you keep working features stop working and there is no way to understand why. There is no alert to this mode. It happens when there are multiple files opened.

Pros: I have used a lot of spreadsheets like Google Sheets, Apple's Numbers, WPS etc. but nothing comes closer to what Excel is. There is a endless list of features and everything is easy to use.There is very little room for improvement for Excel.

Cons: Though Excel get's work done, it is a bit on the pricey side. Microsoft excel is expensive when compared to the other tools in the market. Apart from price there is absolutely nothing that is wrong with the product.

Pros: I like it that you can integrate macros and create a software within a software. I am a translator and I use excel for running quality checks together with Language Tool Box. It highlights on my errors and I am able to go back to my translations to correct them.

Cons: I do not like the latest version of Excel, I guess this is mostly because I am still used to the 90s version. I also have office 360, I do not like the monthly fee.

Overall: checking the quality of my work

Pros: Ease of use. You can self teach with effort. Excel has an enormous amount of functions that can be used. Spend a couple of hours checking out the functions and you can build a simple spreadsheet for home or office.

Cons: To fully take advantage of the functions and versatility of Excel, you will need to enroll in several different classes from foundations to charts, graphs, tables and database functions.

Overall: Great starter program for inventory and then exportable into Access.

Pros: I can build or have built just about anything I want in excel. It is probably the most versitile program ever. Seriously the best, it's tough to do big spreadsheets with formulas and interactive. But when you find the person that can put your thoughts into an excel sheet, it's amazing!

Cons: The learning curve, and some of the directions I think are a bit complex and could be dummied down without losing its prestige.

Overall: Easier prices, job costing, etc...

Latest version is a downgrade due to adding unnecessary steps to shortcuts

Pros: As long as you know what you're doing, this is everything you need to create decently robust financial models and business plans excluding edge-cases like big data analyses (even then you could just use a virtual machine with more processing power in some cases).

Cons: Latest version changed hotkeys (alt-FDEA used to be save and send and now it's alt-FHEA) that really didn't seem necessary and some hotkeys were made longer which reduces productivity.

Pros: You can do everything in Excel especially when it comes to financial modelling. This tool is robust and once you managed to learn basics you can be more effective every day. Macros is a powerful way to customize the workflow.

Cons: Nothing.Many years ago Excel was a "killer app" for PC - it means that many people understood the power of personal computing because of this tool. For many Excel is still the tool they use their computers.

Overall: Still a "killer app"!

Pros: Most of the documents I use in my work are spreadsheets, I simply do not use another computer program other than Microsoft Excel, and it is compatible with the cloud service I use.
It is the leader in the market and its functionality is indisputable, I will never get to know all its benefits are inexhaustible. 100% recommended.

Cons: The program over the years has become very heavy, consuming a lot of resources. But in general, it is the best.

Pros: With such widespread support and adoption, you know exactly what you're getting with this tool - all the basic spreadsheet features you're ever likely to need and more.

Cons: It's probably just because I haven't done much more than the basics in Excel, but some of the advanced features are either hard to find or hard to use.

Overall: It's pretty indispensable - I use it daily for all kinds of documentation, calculation, and review work. It's no surprise that competitors borrow heavily from it.

Pros: Nothing beats Excel. I don't know that any spreadsheet in the cloud will ever be able to handle the vast array of operations you can perform in Excel. They've also added some new features, like 3D images, which is just fantastic for giving your reports an even sharper look.

Cons: The dozens of ways you can connect to outside data can be confusing and unintuitive. I've had to learn much of it by trial and error. And don't get me started on VBA...

Pros: It's simplifies long calculations
It does repititive things straight away with one command
Everything has an order, an ubication, a letter, a number so you can find right away things your looking for
Everything is formulated in a way that you just have to put values and it all automatically modificates based on it

Cons: It has poorly management to do graphics
Not everybody understand how to use it
Cells sometimes are hard to edit with "formulation problems"
Difficult to write ecuations, it would be easier to write as calculators do nowadays
It has a lot of commands that you forget how to write
It should had more buttons with these commands

Overall: To make a lot design calculations for projects as road design, bulding design, concrete dimention design without making it so exhausting because of the amount of formulas a numbers.

Excellent tool to do calculations and much more

Pros: I like most the ability to manipulate data in many ways. Whether it's as simple as sorting by size, or using formulas for more complex data manipulation, Excel is very powerful.

Cons: Formulas are difficult to master. They are very strict with the terms used, so you have to be precise. You cannot have just come close to inputting values correctly- you must be exact. The good news is that the internet has lots of support for using formulas.

Extensive use of Excel over the past 10 years.

Pros: Excel as part of the O365 software suite is a great product for a great price. It still beats out Google Sheets in terms of functionality and as a mature product almost everyone has some degree of experience with using.

Cons: Creating a good looking PDF from a excel workbook is often difficult, frequent formatting errors and random blank pages.

Overall: Excel is vital in our daily operations. The grid format is by far the best way to lay out technical line sheets.

Pros: I love how many options this software offers. It serves many purposes from organizing qualitative data to computing quantitative values in a few clicks with a bit of training.

Cons: The version for Macintosh is less intuitive than the Windows version. There is definitely a steep learning curve for more complicated functions, but with training through endless online resources, the functionality is excellent.

Overall: Organization, computation, analysis
