Excel

06 May

I love Excel. If I have an option between doing something in Word and doing it in Excel, I’ll do it in Excel, even if Word is technically easier. I enjoy manipulating data, using it to tell a story. (I am a geek.)

I spent most of this morning playing in Excel, and I learned some new things. First, the lookup function is only capable of searching the first 15,000 lines of data. When you’re searching 30,000 lines, that’s an issue. Also searching 15,000 lines of data (at a time) to fill in 10,000 blanks makes your computer run slow.
