Reporting with Microsoft Excel
Every company uses some form of reporting in Excel. While the main reports should be done with a BI tool like Power BI, it still makes sense to make some ad-hoc analysis with Excel.
Excel is a very powerful and flexible tool and nearly everybody knows how to work with it more or less. This also leads to some issues. Too often does it happen that Excel files have been growing over the years, have been changed by several users and are therefore becoming more and more complex. Sooner or later, the shown numbers might not be correct anymore and if used to make business decisions, this could be fatal.
