Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Excel

It solves the business problem of being able to make quick calculations on data and present that data in slide shows to management. As well, we can use the Excel tabs to show the differences in the data from month to month. We especially like that most other people have Excel so we can share the files outside of the organization (when applicable).
  • Sum Columns
  • Make pretty spreadsheets
  • Import Data
  • When running the Excel spreadsheet from SharePoint, I prefer to hit Save rather than to have the app auto-save for me.
  • The version on my iPad is less intuitive (less functional?) than the version on my desktop - I haven't checked if macros work on my iPad spreadsheets
  • I would like to put a mix of data types on one cell: text plus a link. HOwever, if I do that, it always treats the whole cell like a link.
  • Positive: Quick to use - everyone has it!
  • Positive: Integrates well with SharePoint and other Microsoft products
  • Positive: Slicker presentations
Microsoft Excel is much different than other products that I have reviewed - it is for the purpose of organizing, summing, working, and categorizing data. Meanwhile, Lucid Charts is for flow charts - a completely different product. They are both great. I have never used Microsoft Excel for building flow charts.

Do you think Microsoft Excel delivers good value for the price?

Whenever I give a presentation that involves any type of categorization, I always use Excel. I have attempted to use Word Charts or even Google Sheets, but in all cases, Excel is quicker and faster and more intuitive. I love the quick color choices at the top so I can make my presentation look "nice" almost immediately.
